Serie A: Osimhen hits double as Napoli thrash Spezia 3-0
Victor Osimhen was again on the scoresheet as Napoli pummeled Spezia 3-0 in Sunday’s Serie A fixture.
Spezia were able to withhold pressure from Napoli in the first half. But Khvicha Kvaratskhelia broke the deadlock for the visitors from the spot barely two minutes into the second half at Alberto Picco.
Osimhen doubled Napoli’s lead in the 68th minute with a sublime header, before completing his brace five minutes later after he was set up by Kvaratskhelia.
The Nigerian has now scored in five league matches in a row. He is top of the scoring chat with 16 goals in 17 Serie A appearances this season.
The 23-year-old is having his best season at Napoli since arriving at the club from Ligue 1 outfit, Lille three years ago.
Napoli who are currently top of the Serie A table with 56 points in 21 matches, will lock horns with bottom-placed Cremonese in their next league match on February 12, 2023.
