Victor Osimhen’s goal secures draw for Napoli against Frosinone

In a thrilling Serie A encounter, Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen once again showcased his goal-scoring prowess as Napoli battled to a 2-2 draw against Frosinone.

Napoli, eager to build on their recent victory against Monza, aimed to secure another crucial win at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium. Matteo Politano set the tone for the home side with a spectacular volley, breaking the deadlock in the first half.

However, Frosinone fought back, capitalizing on a penalty opportunity after Amir Rrahmani’s foul on Walid Cheddira. Despite the penalty awarded to the visitors, Napoli’s goalkeeper Alex Meret delivered a remarkable save, denying Matias Soule from equalizing.

Undeterred, Frosinone managed to level the game early in the second half, capitalizing on a defensive error from Meret, with Cheddira seizing the chance to score.

Napoli regained the lead through Osimhen’s clinical finish, as the Nigerian striker volleyed home from a corner, marking his 13th league goal of the season. However, Frosinone responded swiftly, with Cheddira netting his second goal of the match from a well-executed cross by Nadir Zortea.

Despite their best efforts, Napoli was unable to secure the victory, settling for a hard-fought draw against Frosinone. The result leaves Napoli in 8th place on the Serie A table, with six games remaining in the season. They now trail the UEFA Conference League spot by just one point.

Osimhen’s consistent goal-scoring form continues to be a bright spot for Napoli, as they strive to finish the season on a high note and secure European qualification.
