Victor Osimhen’s work rate helps Napoli earn a 2-1 hard-fought away victory over Lazio during the Serie A encounter at Stadio Olimpico on Saturday night.

Maurizio Sarri’s side took the lead after just four minutes thanks to Mattia Zaccagni’s strike before South Korea defender Kim Min-Jae leveled it up for Luciano Spalletti’s men with a powerful header 38 minutes into the clash Italian capital.

The 23-year-old Nigeria international has shown real character after Napoli is behind with his work rate as Osimhen was unlucky not to have scored at least two goals against Lazio.

The visiting team completed the comeback just after the hour mark through Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s thumping strike for his fourth goal of the season.

Spalletti’s men continues an unbeaten start to the season as Napoli sit on the Serie A table but Ademola Lookman’s Atalanta leapfrog Osimhen’s side if they claim three points on Sunday.
