The Partenopei seem unstoppable at the moment, notching up an 11th consecutive victory in all competitions, something the club only achieved once under Ottavio Bianchi from April to September 1986, but this is the first time they’ve done it in a single campaign.

The 23-year-old Nigerian forward is a key part of Luciano Spalletti’s squad in the Campania capital and proved the difference maker in Sunday’s clash against the Giallorossi, scoring an attractive goal in the 80th minute to secure all three points for Napoli. Despite a recent thigh injury, Osimhen has done well this season, scoring four goals in seven Serie A outings.

The 23-year-old Partenopei forward was a part of the Nigeria squad that fell in their World Cup qualifiers in the recent international break, a heartbreaking result for the entire team and country. The controversy started after media reports suggested that there were concerns regarding his late return from intentional duty.
