Napoli 5-1 Juventus | How papers rate Victor Osimhen’s performance

Napoli crushed Juventus at the Maradona on Friday evening in what was a gigantic result in Italian football history. It was an exceptional performance by Victor Osimhen, who scored a brace and assisted once to put in a showing that many will remember for a long time.

Osimhen now has 12 goals in Serie A and has four assists, having scored once in the UFA Champions League so far. The season and the performance was a fair indicator of his quality as a player. His combinations with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia stood out, as the Nigerian’s movement in the final third helped all the players on the pitch, as he stretched the Juve backline and was a constant trouble for Alex Sandro and Bremer.

The Italian media is buzzing about the striker’s performance, with La Gazzetta dello Sport stating that he was the best player on the pitch and he dons their frontpage on Saturday as well. But here is how the Italian media rated his performance.


La Gazzetta dello Sport: 8.5

Corriere della Sera: 8.5

Tuttosport: 9

Calciomercato: 8.5
