Victor Osimhen goes rogue in Roma vs. Napoli clash

In a fiery showdown between Napoli and Roma, tensions flared as Napoli’s Victor Osimhen found himself sent off during their clash that ended in a 2-0 victory for Roma on Saturday evening.

The Super Eagles striker was at the center of a heated altercation with Roma’s manager, Jose Mourinho, adding to the drama as he also clashed with his own teammate Kvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Lorenzo Pellegrini and Romelu Lukaku capitalized on opportunities, securing a crucial win for Roma with their goals against the reigning Italian champions.

Napoli faced a setback when Osimhen became the second player from their side to receive a red card, following Matteo Politano’s dismissal in the second half.

This loss compounds Napoli’s recent defensive struggles, having conceded a total of six goals in their past two outings across various competitions. With 27 points from 17 matches, Napoli currently occupies the seventh spot in the league standings.

In contrast, Roma’s victory propelled them to the sixth position after the intense encounter on Saturday, marking a positive turn in their league campaign.
