Osimhen Scores Again, Bags World Class Assist In Napoli’s Home Win Vs Cagliari

Victor Osimhen was on target again and also bagged a world class assist as Napoli beat Cagliari 2-1 in the Serie A on Saturday.

The reigning CAF Player of the Year also scored in Napoli’s 2-0 win against Braga in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

His goal against Cagliari was his first in Serie A since October.

Osimhen opened the scoring in the 69th minute as he rose to head home a cross from the left.

Just three minutes later after Osimhen’s opener, Cagliari equalised through Leonardo Pavoletti.

But in the 75th minute Napoli got their second goal thanks to Kvicha Kvaratskhelia from a brilliant assist from Osimhen.

The Super Eagles striker received a pass inside the box, juggled the ball in front of three Cagliari players with his right thigh, slotted it in between the legs of his marker and laid it for his teammate to slam home.

He has scored seven goals in the Italian top flight in the ongoing campaign.

The win took Napoli to fourth place on 27 points and 11 points behind leaders Inter in the league standings.

    One of his best displays of football artistry thus far.

    He poved to doubters that he really deserved the AFOTY award.

    This guy is indeed world-class! I am soooooooooo impressed.

  • Definition of celebrating with the assist provider than the scorer himself lolll, after that assist, the way the entire team ran to VO you will think he is the actual scorer of the goal.
