Osimhen on target as Napoli thrash Lacce 4-0

Nigeria and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen was on target again on Saturday as his Italian club thrash Lecce 4-0 at the Stadio Via del Mare in their Serie A clash.

Osimhen who started the match from the bench was introduced into game in the 46th minute and doubled Napoli’s lead six minutes after replacing Giovanni Simeone.

The 24-year-old nodded in a perfectly floated Kvicha Kvaratskhelia’s cross at the back post.

Osimhen had the chance to score his second of the game when Napoli were awarded a penalty late on, but he passed the chance to Matteo Politano.
