Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen scored his 19th Italian Serie A goal of the season as Napoli defeated Empoli 0-2 on Saturday evening.

Osimhen has scored in his last 8 Italian Serie A games, a run that has helped Napoli consolidate its grip on the top spot in the Italian Serie A.

Against Empoli, Napoli took the lead when unlucky Empoli player Ismaija A. turned into his own goal in the 17th minute.

10 minutes later, Victor Osimhen was at the right place to finish off a good cross and double Napoli’s advantage.

Osimhen now pushes further clear of the chasing pack at the top of this season’s goal-scorers chart in Italy.

Luciano Spalleti elected to take off the Super Eagle in the 85th minute of play.

Napoli are now 18-points clear of second placed Inter Milan with 14 games left in the 2022/2023 season.

Osimhen’s compatriot Tyrone Ebuehi was in action for Empoli from the start.
