Victor Osimhen Leads Napoli’s Dreaming to the Champions League

After scoring twice to propel Napoli to a 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday and their first-ever appearance in the Champions League quarterfinals, Victor Osimhen referred to Napoli as dreaming of winning the competition.

Nigerian striker Osimhen scored both goals after the break to help his team secure a straightforward and deserved 5-0 aggregate victory in Naples.

Osimhen thinks Napoli, the biggest club in southern Italy, can win the leagueOsimhen addressed Amazon Prime with the words, “It’s amazing to make history with this win.”We’ll see what happens in the future, but I think we have a good chance.”

The team led by Luciano Spalletti is on the verge of winning their first Serie A title in more than three decades, and they have qualified for Friday’s draw for the last eight teams in Europe’s premier club competition, making an already remarkable season even better.

Osimhen, who has scored 23 goals in all competitions for possibly the most exciting team on the continent, has helped them to an almost certain domestic title and a deep run in Europe.


Spalletti, on the other hand, was less optimistic about Napoli’s chances than Osimhen was, and when asked if he was pleased that Pep Guardiola said his team was the best in Europe, he responded with a curt “no.”

After Randal Kolo Muani, the France forward who was sent to the stands in the first leg was suspended, Eintracht didn’t do much to trouble Napoli.

Oliver Glasner’s side head out of the opposition on a night in which their fans were engaged in serious confusion in the wake of making a trip to Naples in spite of no tickets for away fans being placed marked down.

After Italian authorities issued two separate bans in a matter of days, Eintracht decided not to use their allocation of tickets for the match out of concern that the situation would recur before the first leg in Frankfurt.

That didn’t stop the German club’s bad-to-the-bone fans in any case, who conflicted with nearby police on a strained night in Naples.

Additionally, Eintracht fans were seen throwing objects at buses carrying Napoli fans in footage published on Tuesday by Italian media. Since Napoli passed without incident, the atmosphere around the stadium was less tense.

In the 19th minute, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia almost scored his second wonder goal in less than a week after being sent charging toward the goal by a brilliant tackle from Zielinski. But just as he was looking for a chance to shoot, he was forced wide, and Kevin Trapp was smart enough to keep the Georgian out two minutes before the break.

Osimhen scored for Napoli

However, Osimhen scored for Napoli moments later with a perfectly timed leap and header from Matteo Politano’s hanging cross, showing why he is one of the world’s best strikers. Trapp was unable to prevent the goal.

After more excellent play from Politano and Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen scored again seven minutes after the break with a more straightforward finish, tapping in Giovanni Di Lorenzo’s low cross.

After two half-chances from Eintracht’s Daichi Kamada and Rafael Borre, as well as another excellent stop from Trapp on Kvaratskhelia, Napoli was three ahead at the end of the night.

The great Zielinski was brought somewhere near Djibril Sow, permitting the Poland midfielder to clean himself down and smoothly space home a spot-kick in the 64th moment. The packed Stadio Maradona had to shout “Ole” at every pass to celebrate their team’s historic victory.
