Victor Osimhen celebrated as Napoli beat Fiorentina


Victor Osimhen missed one penalty but scored another to give Napoli a narrow win over Fiorentina in their first home match since winning the Serie A title.

Osimhen found the net with a 74th-minute penalty after Nicolas Gonzalez fouled Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in the penalty area.

Fiorentina keeper Pietro Terracciano had saved the forward’s spot-kick in the 48th minute.

Napoli won their first Scudetto in 33 years on Sunday after a draw with Udinese.

And they were given a guard of honor from the Fiorentina players ahead of kick-off at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
