Spalletti’s lads then wrapped up their first-half scoring in the 21st minute through Dries Mertens off an assist from Mario Rui.
Sassuolo looked stronger in the second half, but Napoli was just too hot to handle. Mertens struck his second of the game in the 54th minute after a fine assist from Mario Rui.
Osimhen was taken off in the 77th minute. Three minutes later, Rrahmani wrapped it up for the Partenopeans as he scored Napoli’s sixth of the game.
Maxine Lopez scored three minutes before giving the visitors a consolation goal.
