Osimhen has been wonderful in Serie A in recent weeks, but his streak came to a screeching halt against Lazio
Super Eagles striker Osimhen was looking to score his ninth consecutive goal for Napoli when they welcomed Lazio to Naples. Osimhen failed to score against the Biancocelesti in their last two meetings, and he was also looking to change that.
Napoli dominated the first half, bossed possession, and created more chances. But they failed to score. Osimhen put in a decent shift in attack, chasing down every ball, but he could not fashion out a shot on target.
Napoli bossed the game but they did not do anything meaningful. Eventually, Lazio scored through Matias Vecino in the 67th minute.
The Partenopeans pushed hard for an equalizer, but Lazio held on tight to their lead and ensured they ran out with a 1-0 win.
Despite the loss, Napoli still sit at the top of Serie A, 17 points above the chasing pack.
