Khvicha Kvaratskhelia assisted Victor Osimhen in Napoli’s 3-0 win over Spezia yesterday and that made them the most devastating pairing in the top five European leagues so far this season.
Both the players have lit up the Maradona, Serie A and the Champions League with their goalscoring, creation and ability leave defences for dead. So far, they have combined six times for goals, with the sixth goal coming at La Spezia yesterday. No pairing in the top five European has combined for more goals than the two Napoli stars, state La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Erling Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne are also at six, with the Belgian having to come off the bench in Manchester City’s 1-0 loss to Tottenham yesterday. Also at six is the duo of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, with the Argentine and Neymar having combined for four goals so far.
Marcus Thuram and his Borussia Monchengladbach teammate Alassane Plea have also had a good season together, combining for five goals so far. Just below them with five goals are Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
