ROM vs NAP: Can Victor Osimhen Inspire Napoli To 9 Consecutive Wins In The Serie A Today?

Its been a perfect start to the season for Napoli as they have recorded 8 wins in 8 Serie A games since the start of the campaign. However, much of Napoli's success has been down to the instrumentality of Super Eagles player Victor Osimhen who is the club's top scorer in the Serie A having bagged 5 goals so far.

Up next for Napoli is a trip to the Stadio Olimpico Stadium where they will take on Roma today by 17:00 West Africa Standard time and the big question is, can the most expensive African player of all time inspire them to a nine consecutive win?. Needful to say that Victor Osimhen was the hero in Napoli's last Serie A outing as he struck in the 81st minute to earn his side a 1-0 victory over Torino, one that saw the fans sing his name in the Stadium after the game.

With Napoli seeking for what will be their first Serie A title since 1990, they will certainly need Osimhen to stay off Injury so that he can keep doing what he knows how to do best. On the other hand, Jose Mourinho will be looking to get his team back on track following their humiliating 6-1 defeat to the minnows of Norway in the Europa conference league, but an in form Napoli and Victor Osimhen might end up compounding his woes by continuing their winning streak. Victor Osimhen is in the form of his life and is one player Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his team can subdue in order to overcome Napoli.

However, a win for the Blues later today will see them go back to the summit of the table and should Osimhen score, it will keep him in the race for the Serie golden boot.

Who do you think will come out top in this game?
