Napoli playmaker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s stunning strike against Atalanta has been voted the best goal of March in Serie A.
Assisted by Victor Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia’s goal came in Napoli’s 2-0 victory over Atalanta on March 11, the Georgian’s 11th goal in his debut Serie A season.
Osimhen did not get on the scoresheet in the match, but he played a crucial role in the build-up to the goal, providing the assist that allowed Kvaratskhelia to hit a spectacular finish.
The Nigerian striker’s pass found Kvaratskhelia, who then embarked on a dazzling run into the penalty area, leaving several Atalanta players bewildered with his footwork.
Kvaratskhelia’s goal was not only a thing of beauty, but it was also an important one, as it helped Napoli secure a 2-0 victory and move 18 points clear at the top of Serie A. The win was crucial for the Naples-based club as they continue to push for their first Serie A title since 1990.
The goal was also significant for Kvaratskhelia, as it was his first Goal of the Month award in Serie A. The award was presented by crypto.com, and Kvaratskhelia’s goal was the most voted by fans on Lega Serie A’s official social channels.
Kvaratskhelia’s goal beat out tough competition from other top players in Serie A, including Paulo Dybala’s goal against Sassuolo, Yann Karamoh’s goal against Bologna, and Matias Vecino’s goal against Napoli.
However, it was Kvaratskhelia’s incredible display of skill and Osimhen’s crucial involvement that ultimately won the day.
Osimhen is enjoying a brilliant season in Italy, with the Super Eagles striker netting 21 goals to sit top of the Serie A goalscorer chart.
The 24-year-old forward, however, fired blanks for Nigeria in the back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea-Bissau.
