Napoli vs Torino 1 - 0 (Serie A 2021 Goals & Highlights)

1 month ago

Victor Osimhen scored an 81st-minute winner as Napoli beat Torino 1-0 on Sunday to return to the top of the Serie A table and record their eighth win in eight league games.

Luciano Spalletti's side are top with 24 points, two clear of second-placed AC Milan.

However, Napoli faced a stern test trying to break through 12th-placed Torino.

"We deserved it, as the statistics show today and in general for the whole season. This league is not easy so we must continue like this, without stopping," Osimhen told DAZN.

"It was the most important goal of my career, because it was important to win and we embraced the fans this way," Osimhen added.

Napoli had a golden chance to take the lead after 27 minutes when Benjamin Kone brought down Giovanni Di Lorenzo in the box, but Lorenzo Insigne's resulting penalty was tame and easily saved by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

It was the Italy winger's third failed spot kick in five attempts this season, the worst record in Europe's top-five leagues.

Di Lorenzo headed the hosts in front after the break but the goal was disallowed for offside, before Napoli winger Hirving Lozano's shot struck the foot of the post and the lively Josip Brekalo forced a smart save from David Ospina for the visitors.
