Osimhen scores in Napoli’s derby win over Salernitana



Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen scored yet another goal to help Napoli win a competitive Derby di Campania as they defeated Salernitana 2-0.

Early on in the game, captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo flicked the ball over the top for Osimhen to finish between Guillermo Ochoa and the near post, but he was only marginally flagged offside.

Napoli took the lead late in the first half thanks to Di Lorenzo.

Zambo, André-Frank Anguissa and Mario Rui worked together to push Di Lorenzo away from the by-line as he took a touch and slammed the finish off the crossbar.

Eljif Elmas fired a right-footed shot from outside the box, and it deflected off the far post and into Osimhen’s path for the easy tap-in.

The Nigeria international has now scored 13 goals in 15 league appearances for the Partenopei this season.
