Napoli defeated Legia Warszawa 3-0 in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. The victory takes them up to second place in Group C. Victor Osimhen came on in the 57th minute in place of Hirving Lozano, and the Nigerian international scored his team's second goal.
Osimhen has appeared in all of Napoli's UEFA Europa League games this season. In the Seria A, he has contributed heavily to his side's unbeaten start to the league.
Osimhen's incessant running means that he may suffer a burn out in the latter part of the season and it could be wise to manage his minutes in order to keep him firing all season.
Players whose games are defined by pace and relentlessness are always at risk of a burnout towards the end of the season, and given Legia Warszawa are an inferior side on paper, Luciano Spalletti should have rested Victor Osimhen for this game.
Final Take: Much of Napoli's success this season depends on how long they can keep Victor Osimhen fit, and Luciano Spalletti must manage his game time.
