Victor Osimhen on target as Napoli continue excellent run in Seria A


By Mukwuzi Joseph

Victor Osimhen continued his fine goalscoring run with his fourth Serie A goal of the season in Napoli’s 2-0 victory over Cagliari on Sunday.

After his brace against Sampdoria on Thursday, Osimhen got Luciano Spalletti’s side off to a flying start at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona with his 11th-minute opener courtesy of Piotr Zielinski’s assist.

The Nigeria international has now scored at least a goal in his last four matches for Napoli across all competitions.

Later in the second half, Lorenzo Insigne sealed maximum points for the hosts with his effort from the penalty spot in the 57th minute.

The victory powered Napoli to the top of the Serie A table with an unblemished record of 18 points out of six games – two points above second-placed AC Milan.
