SC Braga 1-2 Napoli SC: Victor Osimhen Named Man of the Match
Thursday – The 24-year-old was named Man of the Match after his impressive performance against SC Braga on Wednesday night.
The Nigeria international was a thorn in the flesh of the opposition’s defence in the game, and provided the assist for Napoli’s opener scored by Giovanni Di Lorenzo in the 45th minute.
Braga levelled scores through Bruma four minutes from time.
Sikou Niakate however diverted the ball into his own net late on to give Napoli maximum points in the game.
Osimhen missed a couple of chances in the game but his manager was full of praise for the talismanic striker.
“Victor Osimhen fought hard and ran, it’s what I expect from all my players, that when it comes time to defend, they all help out,” Napoli manager Rudi Garcia was quoted by football Italia.
Napoli’s next match is at home against Bologna at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in a Serie A fixture on Sunday.
