Napoli and Benevento set record

For the first time in Serie A history, the top side have won their first eight games in a row, at the same time the bottom side have lost eight.

Benevento were beaten by Verona tonight, condemning them to their eighth defeat of the season after coming up from Serie B.

At the other end of the table, however, Napoli have won all eight of their opening games to start with a perfect 24 points.

That represents the first time in history that Serie A’s top and bottom sides have had such contrasting records.
