Two Super Eagles players went head to head in Napoli versus Ajax with Osimhen being on the Napoli’s victorious side in a 4-2 win over Ajax Amsterdam in Naples on Wednesday night.
Napoli were in high spirits after the 6-1 demolition of Ajax in Amsterdam last week even without their star striker Victor Osimhen. Meanwhile, Ajax were looking to bounce back from this embarrassing defeat by tactically switching Bassey to left back and Blind to center back which facilitated a goal for the Nigerian during the weekend.
Osimhen who has been out since getting injured against Liverpool in the UCL was named on the team sheet for the fixture with a lot of fans jeering to see him.
Polish midfielder, Piotr Zielinski set up Mexican speedster, Hirving Lozano for the opener in the first four minute to show the visitors that they meant business.
Raspadori soon made it 2-0 before the 17th minute mark with Kvaratskhelia providing ihis 7th assist of the season.
Nigerian defender, Calvin Bassey excellently found Klassen to pull one back for the visitors.
However, Napoli had no plans on retreating as Kvaratskhelia scored from the spot to make it 3-1 and increase his goal and assist tally to 7 each this season.
Steven Bergwijn tried to create a scare for Napoli as he converted his spot kick to make it 3-2 in the 83rd minute.
For Napoli, the big striker Victor Osimhen took matters to his own hands to ensure Napoli’s victory as he charged down Daley Blind to dispossess him and slot the ball into an empty net to make it 4-2 in favour of Napoli.
Osimhen was shown a yellow card for removing his jersey as he scored his first UCL goal of the season.
