Napoli Crushes Cagliari 5-0

CAGLIARI, Italy Napoli inflicted a 5-0 drubbing on Monday on Cagliari to increase their lead at the top of Serie A to four points, though second-place Juventus have a game in hand.

For the visitors, it was a club-record 10th straight league victory.

Real Madrid veteran Jose Callejon put Napoli up 1-0 with a goal in the 29th minute and the away side led 2-0 at the break courtesy of a strike in the 42nd minute by Dries Mertens, who connected with a cross from Elseid Hysaj.

The goal had resonance for Mertens, coming in the same stadium in Cagliari where the Belgium international posted a hat trick in his first match for Napoli in December 2016.

Napoli captain Marek Hamsik increased the margin to 3-0 with a goal in the 61st. Lorenzo Insigne converted a penalty nine minutes later and Mario Rui scored on a direct free kick in the final minute of regulation to complete the rout.

The outcome leaves Cagliari in the 14th spot, just five points above the relegation zone.
