Victor Osimhen Scored a Brace As Napoli Defeated Spezia

Victor Osinhen scored two goals for SSC Napoli as they defeated Spezia 4-1 to get all-important three points. That result shows that SSC Napoli is back from winning ways after drawing their match last week against  Cagliari.

The two goals now mean that Victor Osimhen has now scored 10 goals so far this season and has gone to show the reason why Napoli has to spend so much on him to acquire his services from Lille. Osimhen has helped Gennaro Gattuso's men to get all three points available.

In a match that was played in Stadio Alberto Picco the home ground of Spezia, Victor Osimhen scored two goals and provided an assist to help SSC Napoli defeat Spezia with a comfortable 4-1 victory.

Osimhen is now showing to everybody that he is worth every penny spent on him by Napoli to acquire him from Lille Metropole last season. He is really a prolific center-forward.

The match against Spezia is now Osimhen's 21st Serie A league appearance so far for Napoli and Victor Osimhen made very good use of the opportunity given to him by Gennaro Gattuso to impress for him and SSC Napoli. 

So far, Victor Osimhen has scored in three consecutive matches for Napoli and he shines again by scoring two goals for Napoli against Spezia. This is the first time Victor Osimhen has scored a brace for Napoli in a competitive match and we are hoping it will not be the last as this is just the beginning of what is to expect from Osimhen.

Victor Osimhen spearheaded the attack of SSC Napoli as he came close to scoring in the 12th minute of the match but his shot was narrowly missed.

Piotr Zielinski got the opening goal for Napoli when he scored a goal in the 15th minute with a strike that beat Ivan Provedel Spezia's goalkeeper.

Victor Osimhen got Napoli's second goal in the 23rd minute after hitting a good shot from close range when Zielinski passed to him.

Lorenzo Insigne set up a pass for Victor Osimhen to score his second goal of the match and Napoli's third goal of  the match before the first half came to an end.

Spezia scored what seems like a consolation goal in the second half as Roberto Piccoli scored in the 64th minute of the encounter to make it 3-1.

Napoli sealed their victory when Hirving Lozano benefitted from a pass from Victor Osimhen to tap in the ball inside the net in the 79th minute.

Napoli are second in the Serie A table for now after earning 70 points in 35 Serie A league games this season.

Victor Osimhen has now scored 10 Serie A League goals and three assists in 27 matches for SSC Napoli across all competitions this season.

Victor Osimhen was replaced by Andrea Petagna in the 83rd minute and Napoli is really hoping to continue their winning run when they meet Udinese on May 11th, 2021 on their next league match.
