Osimhen, who featured prominently for Napoli, had a quiet first half but registered a shot on target in the 69th minute.

However, his efforts were insufficient as Napoli struggled to break down Bologna’s resilient defence.

The defeat leaves Napoli’s Conference League ambitions hanging by a thread, with Fiorentina just one point behind and having two games in hand.

The loss is a significant setback for the defending champions, who had hoped to build on their recent performances.

Osimhen’s decision to hand over penalty duties to Politano, who subsequently missed, raised eyebrows.

The Nigerian striker’s silence in the first half and lack of impact in the second half further compounded Napoli’s woes.

Bologna, on the other hand, will be delighted with their win, which consolidates their position in the Serie A table.
