Osimhen hits brace as Napoli go second in Serie A

VICTOR Osimhen was involved in three of Napoli’s four goals on Saturday as they defeated Spezia 4-1 to continue their push of a top four Serie A finish.

The Super Eagles striker scored twice and made one assist to give Gennaro Gattuso’s side the much-needed win after last week’s home draw with Cagliari.

Osimhen, who was taken off with his head bandaged following a collision in that Cagliari draw, made a quick recovery to star in Saturday’s victory.

Piotr Zielinski got the game’s first goal in the 15th minute to give visitors Napoli the lead.

Osimhen then had a hand in their next three goals.

The Nigeria international made it 2-0 in the 23rd minute when he broke from the halfway line to race clear and slot the ball past Bologna goalkeeper Ivan Provedel.

Osimhen made it 3-0 just before half-time with his fifth goal in his last four games.

He has also scored in each of his last four matches and has taken his tally to 10 goals in 21 Serie A appearances in a first season in Italy blighted by freak injuries and Covid-19.

Roberto Piccoli reduced the deficit for Spezia with a 64th minute goal, but Osimhen was not done.

The 22-year-old got his third Serie A assist of the season when he set up Hirving Lozano for Napoli’s fourth goal in the 79th minute.

The win took Napoli temporarily to second place in the league table, one point above Atalanta, Juventus and AC Milan who all play later this weekend.
