Victor Osimhen played a key role for Napoli who returned to winning ways with a resounding 3-0 home win against Bologna on Thursday night, Completesports reports.
Napoli reacted to their disappointing draw with Roma at the weekend as they returned to the top in the league table.
They have same point as AC Milan (28) but are ahead on goals difference.
Osimhen was involved in Napoli’s first penalty awarded as he challenged for the ball in the air with Gary Medel.
The Chilean was initially awarded a free kick in the duel, but VAR called the referee to look at the situation and he saw Medel using his arm to reach the ball before Osimhen.
Medel was booked for dissent after his reaction to the decision, before Lorenzo Insigne converted the penalty after 41 minutes and gave Napoli a two-goal lead at half-time.
Once again, Osimhen was involved in Napoli’s second penalty of the night, as he was brought down by Ibrahima Mbaye in the area when the two were battling for the ball in the 59th minute.
Napoli skipper Lorenzo Insigne stepped up for the second time in the game and smashed it into the bottom corner to make it 3-0.
Spanish midfielder Fabian Ruiz had opened scoring for Napoli on 17 minutes after smashing his effort into the back of the net when he bent his strike around the defenders and past Skorupski from 20 yards.
