Victor Osimhen Strikes Again in Serie A


Victor Osimhen scored with a searing shot to double Napoli’s lead in the first half of their Serie A match against Sassuolo on Friday.

Osimhen fought off two defenders before hitting a low drive from a tight angle, beating the unsuspecting Sassuolo goalkeeper.

The Nigerian netted his 18th goal of the season in the 33rd minute, twenty-one minutes after Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s opener.


It was the 22 year-old’s 10th goal and it moves him fourth in the standings of top scorers this Serie A campaign.

Kravatskhelia’s goal was also a well worked one, with Osimhen running into space as a diversion, allowing the Young Georgian find space for a low drive that let the goalie rooted to his spot.

Meanwhile, the hosts responded with a goal in the 41st minute, but it was chalked off by VAR for offside.

Napoli are chasing their first title in over 30 years, but in the immediate are looking to pick three more points and extend their winning streak in Serie A to seven games.
