Napoli continue perfect start at Udinese to move top of Serie A

After Sunday's 1-1 draw with AC Milan Massimiliano Allegri was withering about his Juventus team and his own decisions, saying that "it was a good thing the referee blew the whistle at the end of the match" as they risked falling to a second defeat.

"In two weeks he made us understand his ideas, created a happy atmosphere and as a tactician he's one of the best," said Giacomo Bonaventura, scorer of the second in Saturday's 2-1 win at Genoa.

Osimhen followed up on his dramatic brace in Thursday's 2-2 Europa League draw at Leicester City by opening the scoring in the 24th minute with his first Serie A goal of the campaign, poking home from near the goalline after Lorenzo Insigne had deftly lobbed Udinese goalkeeper Marco Silvestri.

Without a win from their first four matches for the first time since 1961 and in the relegation zone, Juve will try again to get their league season going at Spezia while Milan should be on safe ground with the visit of Venezia.

Goals from Victor Osimhen, Amir Rrahmani, Kalidou Koulibaly and Hirving Lozano earned Luciano Spalletti's side an impressive win at the Dacia Arena which gives them a perfect 12 points from four games, two points ahead of Inter Milan and AC Milan, who sit second and third respectively.

Udinese lost for the first time this season sit seventh, level on seven points with Lazio, Atalanta and Bologna as Napoli gave off early signs of being title contenders..
