Osimhen nets seventh Serie A goal as Napoli leapfrog Juventus
Osimhen scored from a quick counter-attack to score Napoli’s second.

Victor Osimhen on Monday continued his good run of form for Napoli as he got one of the goals in their 2-0 win away to Torino in Turin.

It was the Nigerian striker’s seventh of the season as he continues to post good showings at the business end of the season that still has the prize of Champions League.

Tiemoue Bakayoko gave Napoli the lead in the 11th minute and two minutes after Osimhen doubled the tally after finishing off well from a swift counter-attacking move.

The Nigerian striker who was in action for 80 minutes before he was substituted had a couple of other chances but he could not find the back of the net again.

Torino were unbeaten in their last four games while scoring eight goals in their previous three home matches but as much as they tried hard to get back into the game after the early setbacks.

Osimhen and his Napoli teammates however held on to secure all three points and leapfrog Juventus into fourth place in the race for a place in next season’s Champions League with five games to go.

Before now, Osimhen was been under severe pressure as he struggled to deliver in the first five months of the season despite the huge transfer fee that he commanded when he made the move from Lille in France.

However, the Nigerian striker appears to have fully navigated the bad patch and the good times appear to be here now as Osimhen has scored four goals in his last six matches.

Osimhen makes history with Napoli as he reaches double figures in the Serie A

The 22-year-old has broken off the shackles that held him in the first half of the season and continued his incredible run of form in front of goal on Saturday

Victor Osimhen is now Napoli’s joint-highest scoring African in the Italian Serie A after he scored twice Napoli’s 4-1 win against Spezia on Saturday afternoon

The Nigerian international equals Kalidou Koulibaly’s ten goals for the Neapolitans- although he did it in 21 games in contrast to Koulibaly’s 210 games.

He has now scored ten or more league goals in consecutive seasons, having scored 13 for Lille in the Ligue 1 last season. Osimhen is the youngest player after Haaland to achieve this feat in Europe’s top five leagues in the previous two seasons.

Osimhen’s brace also takes his league tally to five goals in his last four games for Gennaro Gattuso’s team. The ex-Lille man scored his first of his two goals in the 23rd minute to put Napoli two goals up after Piotr Zielinski had opened the scoring.

The Super Eagles star then scored his second and Napoli’s third just before half-time, firing into the roof of the net after he was picked out by Lorenzo Insigne.

Osimhen has now scored in four consecutive league games for the first time in his club career. The Nigerian has managed to overcome Covid-19 and injury problems to hit form at the right time.
