Serie A- Osimhen Hits Brace, Bags Assist As Napoli Thrash Juventus 5-1
Napoli showed why they are the top team in the Italian Serie A with a convincing 5-1 win over second place Juventus in the first game of the weekend.
Red hot Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen opened the floodgate of goals with the opener after just 14 minutes. His partner in attack Kvicha Kvaratskhelia doubled their advantage in the 39th minute before Angel Di Maria reduced the deficit to 1-2 heading into the half time break.
Ten minutes after the restart Amir Rrahmani made it 3-1 before the irrepressible Osimhen made it 4-1 just two minutes after a criminal miss. The goal took his goal count for the season to 12 goals, just two goals shy of his entire tally for last season.
Elif Elmas piled more misery on the visitors with the fifth goal in the 72nd minute, seven minutes before Osimhen was subbed off to a standing ovation from the fans at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
The win means Napoli have now stretched their lead at the top of the table to ten points after 18 games. Juventus dropped to second spot with AC Milan overtaking them, due to a superior goal difference despite not playing until tomorrow when they take on Lecce.
