Napoli fans are commonly known to be superstitious, but even for them, Napoli potentially winning Serie A is so large they can start to prepare to celebrate their first title win in 33 years. Napoli's last Scudetto win was in 1989-1990 when the legendary Diego Armando Maradona was the star of the club. It took them more than thirty years to be back at the top of the table, but with a 18-point advantage, even traditionally nervous Napoli fans can keep breathing easy. With six games left before the end of the Serie A season, Napoli are well positioned to win the Scudetto this year, but when?
Coach Luciano Spalletti is trying to keep calm and work on a daily basis to achieve what would make him one of the most beloved coaches in the history of the club. Looking at the schedule, let's try to figure out when can Napoli fans celebrate.

When can Napoli win?
After 32 games, Napoli have collected 79 points with an important margin of advantage over their rivals. Despite drawing at home against Salernitana and missing out the first chance to officially win the title, the Azzurri took their lead over Lazio to 18 points and 19 points over Juve. Spalletti's team have won 25 games in total, drawn four, and lost three against Inter, Lazio and AC Milan. With such a big margin, if Napoli's advantage remains the same over the rest of the season, fans can celebrate the title six games ahead of the end of season, meaning this week could be the day. To make it happen, Napoli need only one point against Udinese if Lazio win on Wednesday against Sassuolo. If Lazio draw or lose, Napoli will become the 2022-23 Serie A champions before playing on Thursday.
