Victor Osimhen continued his red-hot form for Napoli as he scored twice in Napoli’s 3-0 win over Spezia in the Italian Serie A on Sunday.

The win extends Napoli’s advantage to a whopping 16 points at the summit of the table.

Wing wizard Kvaratskhelia put Napoli ahead from the penalty spot two minutes after the break.

Super Eagles forward Osimhen then pounced on a defensive error to double Napoli’s lead in the 68th minute and five minutes later rolled home an easy finish after Mattia Caldara passed straight to Kvaratskhelia on the edge of his own area.

The brace takes Osimhen’s tally in the Serie A to 16 goals so far this season.
