Napoli Cruise into Champions League QF, Osimhen Ends Drought


Victor Osimhen scored a brace and Piotr Zielinski’s penalty sealed a 5-0 aggregate win for Napoli as they progress to the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League.

Napoli completed a sweep in the round of 16 clash against Eintracht Frankfurt, winning 2-0 and 3-0, in the first and second legs consecutively.

Osimhen scored his first and Napoli’s opening goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time in the first half.

The Nigerian had failed to score in two games, firing blanks against Atalanta and Empoli, but he found his form again notching up his 50th career goal for the Club.

His second – and 51st goal – doubled the hosts lead in the 53rd minute as the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium crowd celebrated wildly sensing their team was on the verge of a famous win.

Piotr Zielinski closed out the victory when he converted from the penalty spot to add a third goal in the 64th minute.

Napoli will find out their last eight opponent in Friday’s draw ceremony.
