Osimhen’s lone strike sees Napoli fly over Fiorentina


Victor Osimhen saw one penalty kick saved before scoring another as Napoli marked their Scudetto celebrations with a 10 win against Fiorentina amid a carnival atmosphere.

Having ended a 33year wait to win the Serie A on Thursday, Luciano Spallettis men were greeted by a jubilant crowd at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

But two muchchanged lineups made for a lowkey opening.

Osimhen thought he had missed the Partenopeis best chance for victory when he had a secondhalf penalty kick saved by Pietro Terracciano.

But a foul on Khvicha Kvaratskhelia gave him the chance to atone.

Serie As top goalscorer hammered home at the second time of asking, ensuring Napolis longawaited Scudetto party was capped with three points on Sunday.

Fiorentina gave Napoli a prematch guard of honour, but they were determined not to extend similar levels of hospitality after kickoff, Luka Jovic heading narrowly over early on.

Eljif Elmas shot wide as Napoli who started with Kvaratskhelia and Stanislav Lobotka on the bench were slow to click into gear.
