Serie A: Osimhen, Lookman on target as Napoli edge Atalanta


By Sedara Oluwadara

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen and his international teammate Ademola Lookman were on target for Napoli and Atalanta respectively in the Italian Serie A on Saturday.

The match ended 2-1 in favour of Napoli, who extended their lead eight points on the log.

Osimhen scored a goal and assisted the winning goal to cap another match-winning performance for Napoli.

Ademola Lookman gave Atalanta the lead in the 19th minute from the penalty spot after Osimhen handled the ball in the 18-yard box.

Osimhen quickly restored parity for Napoli four minutes later with a glancing header from a pin point corner by Piotr Zielinski.

Osimhen turned provider when he assisted Eljif Elmas for the winning goal in the 35th minute.

The former Lille striker has now scored eight goals in nine Serie A matches for Napoli this season.

Ademola Lookman has scored six goals for Atalanta since joining from Leipzig in the Summer.

Up next for Napoli is a home clash against Empoli, while Atalanta travels to Lecce on Wednesday.
