OSIMHEN FIRES BLANK IN BIG WIN

Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen was surprisingly not on the scoresheet as Napoli thrashed Udinese 5-1 at home on Wednesday night to maintain their push for Champions League football.

Super Eagles of Nigeria attacker Osimhen has been in fantastic form in recent games and it's a bit of surprise that he didn’t score in the big win over Udinese at the Stadio Armando Maradona. He took his tally to ten goals in the league this season with his first brace in the Serie A. The Nigeria international scored twice in the 4-1 away victory over Spezia at the weekend.

Osimhen started the Udinese game and he was on for 70 minutes before being replaced by Belgian national team player Dries Mertens with the game virtually won at 4-1.
