Serie A

Victor Osimhen has now scored five goals in eight appearances for Napoli this season.

Victor Osimhen was Napoli's hero as his late strike propelled the Parthenopeans to a 1-0 victory over Turin in the top-tier Italian meeting on Sunday. With the match seemingly destined to end on a note without a winner or loser, the Nigeria international went overboard to lead Elif Elmas' cross past goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic in the 81st minute of the hotly contested clash.

Ahead of the game against the Maroons, the Napoli-based side had won all of their previous seven games in the Italian top flight in the 2021-22 campaign. Napoli have won eight out of eight Serie A victories, taking a 1-0 home win over Turin on Sunday night thanks to a goal from Nigeria international Victor Osimhen.

In the first half, Lorenzo Insigne had a penalty saved by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, before Giovanni Di Lorenzo had a goal disallowed in the second half for offside. But, in the final 10 minutes, the goal finally came as Osimhen scored his fifth league goal of the season, leaping higher and heading after a fight in the penalty area.

They have notched eight wins out of eight in Serie A, earning a 1-0 win at home to Torino on Sunday night thanks to a goal from Nigerian international Victor Osimhen.
