    It was another brilliant performance by Napoli against Cremonese at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.

    The Serie A giants produced a five-star performance at home against Cremonese as they push for the Serie A title.

    Napoli dominated the game from start, wielding 67% of the ball, firing 15 shots, with 10 on target, and completing 697 passes.

    Expectedly, Cremonese cowered under the overwhelming influence and firepower of their hosts. They managed just an attempt on target and were forced to play the game in their own half, especially in the last 45 minutes.

    Kvaratskhelia opened the scoring for the home side in the 21st minute, before Victor Osimhen doubled the lead in the 65th minute.

    Elma sank Cremonese with a late 79th-minute strike that put the game beyond the visitors with a thumping defeat.

    The win against Cremonese saw Napoli hit 62 points, after 23 games in the Serie A, opening an astonishing 15-point gap at the top of the table.

    Napoli is unrivaled in the Serie A this season, but Nigeria international and former Lille striker Victor Osimhen has been the club’s powerhouse.

    Victor Osimhen has been in top shape this season and has been banging goals for Napoli week in and week out.

    This season, he has made 19 Serie A appearances for Napoli and has scored 18 goals, with 3 assists.

    He is currently top of the list of 2022/23 top-scorers in Serie A and has 5 goals better than second highest top-scorer Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan, who have 13 goals in 23 matches.

    Against Cremonese, Victor Osimhen registered his name on the scoresheet in a seventh consecutive Serie A game for Napoli this season. His goal was a wonder strike which sparked reactions among football fans.

    After receiving a long pass in the Cremonese box, the Nigeria international beat off the tackle of Cremonese defenders and fired into a tight angle in the bottom-right corner to double the lead for Napoli.

    Fans took to their social media handle to react to Victor Osimhen’s strike. While many blame the Cremonese goalkeeper for the goal, others marveled at the superb strike by the 24-year-old.

    A fan wrote, “Victor Osimhen is string no doubt, but taking a goal from here is forbidden.”

    Another said, “If there was a rocking chair in the door, he would have stopped the shooting …awkward tip.”

    Another added, “Everything they do works perfectly. You don’t score such a goal even if you try it 20 more times. Congratulations anyway.”

    Victor Osimhen has now scored 42 goals for Napoli in his 70 appearances for the club and is tipped to lead the Serie A outfit to the 2022/23 Serie A title.

    Osimhen’s overwhelming start to Napoli’s Serie A campaign have turned him on the radar of some top clubs in Europe, with Manchester United reportedly ready to splash over £100m for the Napoli forward next summer.
