Victor Osimhen just doesn’t know what it feels like not to score in a game these days after he scored again to lift Napoli past home team Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in a UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash.
Victor Osimhen's 20th Goal of the Season in all competitions.
2 in the UCL. 18 in Serie A.
The Monster Machine rolls on…. scoring in his 8th straight game in all competitions.

Osimhen opened scoring in the 40th minute, when he outsprinted his marker to side foot a low cross from the right.
It was his 20th goal in all competitions and second in this season’s Champions League.
The 24-year-old striker was unfortunate not to get a second goal moments after his opening goal as his effort was adjudged to have been scored from an offside position.
Earlier in the first half, the Super Eagles striker caused a penalty when he was kicked by Eintracht Frankfurt defender Buta inside the box.
He was replaced late in the second half.
The second leg will be played on March 15 in Naples with the overall winners marching into the Champions League last-eight.
