Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen was among the goal scorers as Napoli beat Sampdoria 2-0 in a Serie A clash on Sunday evening.
Fabian Ruiz opened the scoring in the first half with a team goal that echoed the Maurizio Sarri era’s days. Still, Doria can feel hard done after Morten Thorsby had a goal ruled out by VAR while the Nigerian striker sealed the win three minutes from time.

The Partenopei took a well-earned lead in the 35th minute with an excellent team move. After an exchange of passes down the middle of the ground, Piotr Zielinski played a through-ball to Fabian Ruiz, who supplied the clinical finish.
Napoli secured the win when substitute Dries Mertens provided a lovely through-ball for Osimhen to put the ball into the net with a thunderous strike.
The Partenopei remain fourth in Serie A with 59 points while Sampdoria is 10th with 36.
