NAP 3-0 EIN: Why Denying Osimhen The Penalty Duties Needs To Be Stopped

Napoli returned to the UEFA Champions League today, hosting Eintracht Frankfurt at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona for the second leg. The Italian side displayed brilliantly as they easily defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 on aggregate to book a place in the UCL quarter finals.

Victor Osimhen, on the other hand, was instrumental in Napoli's victory today. The Napoli striker continued his impressive goalscoring streak in all competitions, scoring two goals to help Napoli win this game.

Well, the 23-year-old, who had already scored two goals after 54 minutes of play, was expected to complete his hat-trick after a Napoli player was fouled in the 18-yard box in the 62nd minute, but after a penalty kick was awarded, Piotr Zeilinski converted. It was extremely unfair that Victor Osimhen did not complete his hat-trick today. The same thing happened in the first leg, when he won a penalty that was missed by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Osimhen shouldhave been allowed to take today's penalty as retribution for the first leg own. He has been an important member of the team but is rarely given the opportunity to take penalties at the club. He is vying for the Golden Shoe and would benefit from any goals he can get right now. So, I believe that denying Victor Osimhen penalty duties at Napoli should be discontinued.
