ROM 0-0 NAP: How Mourinho Roma Exposed Victor Osimhen's Short Comings

Napoli's 100 percent record in Serie A came to an end on Sunday as they played out a goalless draw against AS Roma. Napoli struggled to find spaces to exploit throughout the game and their two biggest opportunities came just after the hour mark, when Victor Osimhen hit the woodwork on two occasions.

Jose Mourinho set up his side in a very defensive way, and his tactics restricted Victor Osimhen from getting much service.

Prior to the game, Osimhen had scored five Serie A goals, but the Nigerian has the worst conversion rate among the top 10 goalscorers in the Italian Serie A. Osimhen has a 24 per cent shot conversion rate — the worst in the Top 10 — behind Bologna's Musa Barrow. 

All of Osimhen's goals have been from clear-cut chances and he has managed to have a 48 per cent shot accuracy. Against Roma, Osimhen had the two biggest chances of the game and should have done better.

Final Take: Osimhen should try to improve his goal conversation rate as this is the only aspect that is lacking in his game. Although he had a good performance against Roma.
