UEFA Champions League

In-form Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen came off the bench to net a goal in his team 3-0 win

Super Eagles of Nigeria forward, Victor Osimhen continues his impressive run of form for Napoli in their 3rd game of the UEFA Europa League Group C ties against Legia Warsaw at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

The Nigerian star was exceptional in the show of the night despite starting the game from the bench due to tactical reason as he came on to inspire his team to 3-0 win which placed them at the second spot on the table.

Victor Osimhen was introduced into the game in the 57th minute for Hirving Lozano and he was able to score a goal which was instrumental in their crucial win of the night that put them back to winning ways in the competition, after their last disappointing result against Spartak Moscow.

The game was such an intensed one in the first half as there was nothing to separate the two sides going into the half time break which ended goalless draw.

The tempo of the game got heated up in the second half as they both put up some physical, tactical and technical displays but none was able to break the deadlock until the 76th minute when Lorenzo Insigne gave his side the lead to make it one nil.

In the 80th minute, the goal opener set up a brilliant assist for Victor Osimhen who made it two for the Luciano Spalletti's side before Matteo Politano extended the lead for the host in the 95th minute to make it three goals to nil.

After every other attempts from both sides to add more to the tally of the night, all were not successful as it ended three goals to nil at full time.

Victor Osimhen with his brilliant stats so far this season has now taken his tally to 9 goals in 10 games across all competitions for Napoli and 11 goals for both club and country.

Napoli with the win now sit at the 2nd spot on the table with 4 points in 3 games played and as such be hoping to keep the winning streaks going in their next fixture, so as to continue their pursuit in the competition.
