Victor Osimhen was in exciting form on Thursday evening, scoring a brace as Napoli return to the summit of the Italian Serie A table, thanks to their 4-0 win route to Sampodria at Marassi.

The Nigeria international scored the opener after just 10 minutes when he received the ball from the defense and send it to the left to Lorenzo Insigne.

He continued his run and showed brilliant awareness to outwit Sampdoria’s Colley to get on the return pass from the Napoli captain and guide the ball into the net despite the best efforts of goalkeeper Audero to keep it from crossing the line.

Osimhen, got his brace in the 50th minute with a right-footed finish after Hirving Lozano laid the ball into his path in the box.

The fourth goal wrapped up proceedings on the hour when from another cut back by Lozano, Piotr Zielinski lashed in a left-footed finish.

It has been an eventful seven days of football for him as he scored in his last three games to take his goal tally to five in all competition.

Last season was one fraught with injury and Osimhen was only able to score 10 goals in all competitions.
