Roma secured a vital Serie A victory over reigning champions Napoli, claiming a 2-0 win with Lorenzo Pellegrini and Romelu Lukaku finding the net. The intense match witnessed Napoli’s Matteo Politano and Osimhen being shown red cards in the second half, leaving the champions with only nine players by the game’s conclusion.

Amidst this, Mourinho was involved in clashes with Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia on the sidelines, notably seen vocally engaging with Kvaratskhelia, demanding respect from the young player.

Napoli’s recent outings have seen them concede six goals in their last two games in all competitions, contributing to their current seventh position in the league with 27 points from 17 matches. Meanwhile, Roma, following Saturday’s victory, have climbed to sixth place.

Under Mourinho’s guidance, Roma made a strong comeback after their 2-0 loss to Bologna the previous week. Looking ahead, they aim to continue their winning streak when they take on Juventus on December 30.
