Serie A: Osimhen’s Napoli Beats Juventus As Spezia Stun Milan



By Omolagba Oluwayemi

Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen returned to Napoli’s starting lineup in the league yesterday as his side ran out a one nil victory against Juveny, reports.

Osimhen who was on for 75 minutes created two clear cut chances before being replaced by Andrea Petagna.

Although Juventus dominated the game, Lorenzo Insigne’s well converted 31st minute penalty was enough for Gattuso’s men to secure a vital three points against Juventus.

Spezia registered their first ever win over Serie A leaders Milan as Giulio Maggiore and Simone Bastoni sealed a famous 2-0 triumph at Stadio Alberto Picco.

Milan fell behind 11 minutes into the second half when captain Maggiore opened his league account for the season from close range before Bastoni added a sumptuous second after 67 minutes.

Stefano Pioli’s side failed to register a single attempt on target in a league game for the first time since August 2019 as they slipped to their first Serie A away defeat in 14 months

The result means Inter who Milan face next weekend can leapfrog their rivals at the league summit if they overcome Lazio on later today.

Torino and Genoa played out a goalless draw in the early kick-off on Saturday.
