Europa and Conference League round-up
Osimhen’s goal was not enough as Napoli stunned at home by Spartak MoscowEmbed from Getty Images
A 94 mins strike by In-form striker Victor Osimhen was not enough to prevent Napoli from suffering defeat in Naples. The frontman who came on from the bench has been scintillating form this season. He has scored seven goals in his last five matches in September. The Italian club is down to third in the group having taken only a point from two games.
Napoli took the lead in the first mins but was reduced to ten men after Mario Rui was red-carded. Three second-half goals by Spartak Moscow turned the game on its head. And neither Sparktak’s Caufriez red card nor Osimhen goal could prevent Napoli from suffering their first defeat of the season.
