Hat-trick Hero Victor Osimhen equals Diego Maradona’s Scoring feat At Napoli

Diego Maradona

Nigerian football star, Victor Osimhen equalled late legendary Argentina captain Diego Maradona’s scoring feat at Napoli, after bagging a hat-trick against Sassuolo.

Osimhen got his second-ever hat-trick in Serie A as Napoli thrashed Sassuolo 6-1 away on Wednesday night, February 28.

The Super Eagles striker has now scored in his last three games for the Italian league champions.

Also, he has taken his tally for the league campaign to 11 in 15 games.

His second goal against Sassuolo which put Napoli 3-1 ahead took his goals in the league to 10.

Osimhen is now the only third Napoli player in the club’s history to have scored 10 or more goals for four consecutive seasons.

Maradona did that between 1984 and 1988 and one has to go as far back as 1929, when Attila Sallustro achieved the same feat for the Partenopei, between 1929/30 and 1932/33).
