Victor Osihmen’s second-half equalizer was enough for Napoli to earn a 1-1 draw away to Udinese and win the title for the first time in 33 years. Gli Azzurri moved an insurmountable 16 points ahead of second-place Lazio with five matches still to play. Celebrating this feat, 11000 Napoli fans made the eight-hour journey to Udinese to witness the title win and they stormed onto the pitch to celebrate after the match. 

But as celebrations went into overdrive, the police were involved as the home supporters appeared with batons and belts. Thousands of fans flocked to the streets and the celebrations left around 200 people injured and one dead. 200 people were admitted to the hospital with various concerns like knife wounds and burn from the crackers and asthma attacks caused by smoke from the flares.

A man was killed from a celebratory gunshot in the Piazza Volturno area and three others were admitted with a gunshot injury. Police are now investigating the matter as Naples Prefect Claudio Palomba told RAI radio that the shooting had "nothing to do with the celebrations" and that only seven people were injured. There are contrasting reports regarding the matter and the police are still investigating.  The celebrations can go on for weeks which will leave the Naples roads heavy traffic.
