UCL: Osimhen On Target, Bassey Bags Assist As Napoli Beat Ajax To Qualify For Round Of 16


Victor Osimhen marked his return from injury with a goal as Napoli defeated Ajax 4-2 in Italy, to secure their fourth win in Group A in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

Osimhen’s Super Eagles teammate Calvin Bassey provided the assist for Ajax first goal.

Osimhen has been out of action for more than a month due to injury, but netted Napoli’s fourth goal to help seal their passage into the round of 16 with two games to spare.

Osimhen ended any hopes of a comeback as he snatched the ball from an Ajax player before slotting into an empty net.


With the score line at 2-0 Ajax pulled a goal back as Bassey set up Davy Klaassen to make it 2-1 on 49 minutes.
