The Super Eagles striker scored for the third game running to open the scoring for the Neapolitans in their Serie A clash against Cagliari
Victor Osimhen’s became the joint-top scorer in Europe’s top five leagues in September after he found the back of the net yet again in Napoli’s match against Cagliari.
The Nigerian international opened the scoring in the 11th minute, stabbing home from close range following a Piotr Zieliński.
It’s his sixth strike in the last four games for Napoli, and no player has scored more in all competitions in Europe’s top five leagues this month.
The Nigerian was a thorn in the flesh of Cagliari defenders, who failed to cope with his strength and physicality for the 77 minutes he was on the pitch.
Napoli went into the break with a 1-0 lead, but they doubled their advantage in the 57th minute from the spot, with Osimhen playing an influential role.
The former Lille man was upended by Diego Godin in the box after initially beating him with his strength to get into the area. Lorenzo Insigne then stepped up to convert the resulting penalty and seal a 2-0 win for the Neapolitans.
The result takes Napoli back to the top of the Serie A table with six wins out of six.
