Osimhen’s impressive achievement elevated him to the 13th position in Napoli’s all-time scorers chart. Additionally, Opta reports that he is only the third player in the club’s history, alongside the late Diego Maradona and Attila Sallustro, to score at least 10 goals in four consecutive Serie A seasons.

Osimhen: Napoli’s Key to Success

The Italian Daily, La Gazzetta dello Sport, emphasizes that Osimhen is not just the answer to Napoli’s issues.

They gave the former Lille star a score of eight and stated, “He (Osimhen) embodies the solution to Napoli’s problems.”

Although he made occasional errors, he persisted in creating opportunities. He even delivered a long ball for Kvara, who scored the fifth goal in the 5-1 victory.

Another Italian daily, Il Corriere dello Sport, labeled the Nigerian international as ‘unstoppable’ and a ‘hurricane’ that overpowered Ruan Tressoldi and Gian Marco Ferrari.

Osimhen Sparks Napoli’s Goal-scoring Revival

Napoli last scored at least six goals in a game in October 2022, during an away 6-1 victory against Ajax in the Champions League group stage, with Osimhen providing the magic.

Tuttosport and Corriere dello Sport both gave the Nigerian striker a rating of eight.

“He is the driving force behind Napoli’s resurgence,” Tuttosport stated.

Osimhen’s hat-trick brought his total to five goals in three games for Napoli since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations and his 13th goal across all competitions this season.

Napoli’s Goal-Scoring Dynamo and League Position

He has scored 72 goals in 122 games for Napoli and is currently tied for fourth place with Paulo Dybala in the Serie A top scorers standings, having scored 11 goals in 15 games.

The outcome maintains the champions in ninth place, but they are now only eight points behind the top four.
