Hirving Lozano's Napoli suffered an unexpected setback in Serie A matchday 34 against Empoli, losing a 2-goal lead in just 10 minutes. Spalletti's team was fighting along with Milan and Inter for the chance to win the Scudetto, but this defeat leaves them practically without a chance to win the league.

On the other hand, Inter beat Mourinho's Roma 3-1 in emphatic fashion, and Milan, in another difficult match against Lazio, managed to turn the game around to win 2-1 in stoppage time thanks to Tonali's goal.
After 34 rounds, Milan are first in the standings with 74 points, Inter are second with 72 points but with a game in hand against Bologna, so if Inzaghi's men win in midweek, they will move into first place. Finally, Napoli is left with 67 points, with 4 games left to play, that is, 12 points at stake, and only a miracle would allow them to win the Scudetto.
Serie A will be fought between the Milan teams, who have had a great tournament. The Rossoneri will be looking to win the league after almost 10 years, while Inter wants to win the league for the second time in a row.
Chucky Lozano and Napoli's teammates 'punished' for being left out of the title race
A new mess at Chucky Lozano's Napoli. After the shocking and unexpected loss to Empoli, it has been announced that a punitive training camp has been imposed on all members of the team.
"The club, the sports management, the coach, and the staff have decided that the most important thing at this time is to integrate theory meetings and assessments of upcoming games into the regular daily training schedule. From evening meetings to dinners to open up more about any critical issues, problems, misunderstandings, quality of play, all to maximize the excellent quality of our players demonstrated in the first part of the season," a club statement alludes.
These reactions have become a habit every time Napoli fails to meet its objectives. It happened in the last part of Carlo Ancelotti's time in charge of the team (where the players rebelled, leading to serious sporting consequences), as well as last year when a string of bad games left them out of the Champions League.
It is expected that the team will come out of this tense situation at least with a ticket to the Champions League, a competition they have not played for three years. On this occasion, it seems that the qualification to the Champions League is not in danger (Roma is nine points behind), but with the moment Napoli is going through, nothing is assured.
