Napoli is still perfect and Zapata reaches 100 goals

Victor Osimhen hung in the air to nail a header with nine minutes remaining, as Napoli extended their perfect start in Serie A by beating Torino 1-0 on Sunday.

After captain Lorenzo Insigne wasted a penalty with a weak shot in the first half and Giovanni Di Lorenzo had a goal disallowed for forward position, Osimhen came to Napoli’s rescue.

After a beautiful team play, the 22-year-old Nigerian forward capitalized on a ball that was deflected on the back of a teammate to score the winning goal.

In a game dominated by Napoli, Mexican striker Hirving Lozano smashed a shot off the post in the second half.

With their eighth win in eight games, Napoli opened a two-point gap over the also unbeaten Milan, who beat Hellas Verona on Saturday.

Defending champion Inter, who lost to Lazio on Saturday, fell seven points behind Napoli.
