UDINE, Italy : Napoli maintained their perfect start to the Serie A season with a rampant 4-0 victory at Udinese on Monday, making it four straight wins to lead the standings.Victor Osimhen broke the deadlock in the 24th minute, getting the final touch on the line after Lorenzo Insigne had lofted an effort towards goal, while Amir Rrahmani added a second 11 minutes later from a well-worked free kick.
