UCL: Despite Osimhen’s missed penalty, Napoli thrash Liverpool

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, missed a penalty before he left the pitch with injury, as they demolished Liverpool 4-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

With five minutes left before the interval at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, the Super Eagles star was replaced by Giovanni Simeone after picking a knock.

Prior to his injury setback, Osimhen had missed a penalty in the 18th minute as his kick was saved by goalkeeper Allison after he was brought down in the box by Virgil van Dijk.

The former Lille player was a major doubt against the Premier League side, nonetheless, he was named in Luciano Spalletti’s starting XI – shouldering goalscoring responsibilities – while relying on support from Matteo Politano, Piotr Zielinski, and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

As of the time of this report, Napoli have not stated the nature of Osimhen’s injury and the number of days he will spend on the sidelines.
