Napoli must win every game to claim Scudetto, says Hamsik

Napoli must win all of their remaining games if they are to secure the Scudetto this season, according to captain Marek Hamsik.

Napoli must win all of their remaining games if they are to secure the Scudetto this season, according to captain Marek Hamsik.

Maurizio Sarri’s men are second in the Serie A standings, three points behind leaders Juventus with eight games left to play.

Napoli have the equal best scoring record in the league, with Gonzalo Higuain topping the scoring charts on 29 goals – 15 more than next-best Carlos Bacca and Paulo Dybala – while also boasting the second-best defensive record.

However, with Juventus on a run of 20 games unbeaten in the league – 19 of which have ended in victory – Hamsik knows Napoli cannot afford to drop any points.

“To win the Scudetto, you have to try to win all the remaining games,” the 28-year-old said.

“I do not think Juve will lose a lot of points.”

Slovakia international Hamsik added: “I hope to do very well with the national team at the European Championship, but first I have to try to win the league title with Napoli.”
