SERIE A

Osimhen starts for Napoli and was on the scoresheet as they trashed high scoring Atalanta side relentlessly.

The lanky Nigerian striker controlled the ball on his chest from a long pass from Ospina, turns and fired a low shot past the opposition goalkeeper into the bottom corner to get his first official goal for the club.

Noah Sarenren-Bazee was on the bench for Augsburg as they lost 2-nil at home to Leipzig.

Marseille 3 – 1 Bordeaux
