 Osimhen scores game-winning header vs Aina's Torino to preserve Napoli's 100% record
Napoli preserved their one hundred percent record in the new Serie A season thanks to their most expensive signing in history, Victor Osimhen who struck in the closing minutes of the contest at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
 
The Super Eagles number 9 and international teammate Ola Aina put in a full shift for their respective teams.

There were no goals after the opening forty five minutes but there was no shortage of things to talk about.

Lorenzo Insigne missed a penalty, a poor kick comfortably saved by Torino goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic and there were chances as well for Osimhen with a couple of strikes at goal from range.

Nine minutes from time, the Nigeria international scored what proved to be the winning goal as he headed home with Eljif Elmas providing the assist for the goal.

Torino had opportunities in the second half most notably from Josip Brekalo who weaved his way inside the penalty area but couldn't control his effort when the ball was hit very appetizingly across the face of goal.

Osimhen has tallied eight goals from nine appearances in all competitions so far this season, with five of the goals netted in the top-flight.

With eight wins from eight, Napoli are topping the Serie A table with 24 points accumulated, two more than nearest challengers AC Milan.
