Victor Osimhen was on the score sheet again as Napoli secured a comprehensive 4 nil victory away at Lecce.
The Nigerian striker came on as a second half substitute and got his goal less than 10 minutes of steeping into the pitch.
Osimhen scored via a header in the six yard box from a well-timed cross from last season’s Serie A Player of the Year, Khvicha Kvaratksheila.
The 24-year-old striker has now scored 5 goals in 7 Serie A matches this season and he is currently joint top with Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez.
Napoli are gradually climbing up the table after a shaky start to their title defense. Rudi Garcia’s side occupy the 3rd position on the log with 14 points after 7 games.
Osimhen has been in the news in the past few days after he deleted Napoli-related pictures and videos from his Instagram page after the club’s TikTok account published two videos that ridiculed him after he missed a penalty away at Bologna last Sunday.
