The Nigerian international came off the bench to score and promptly increased Napoli’s lead with a header.
Before the game, Rudi Garcia rested Victor Osimhen, with Simeone taking his place in the forward position.
Just five minutes after coming into the match, Osimhen made his mark, as usual.
First, Ostigard’s header secured a first-half lead for Partenopei, and Osimhen powerful header doubled the advantage after the halftime break.
During a counterattack by the visitors, a loose pass allowed Kvaratskhelia to break free. The winger skillfully evaded his marker and delivered a precise cross to the far post, where Osimhen expertly headed in the goal.
Victor Osimhen achieved consecutive goals, marking his fifth Serie A goal of the season in Napoli’s impressive away win.
Gaetano sealed the game with a powerful strike in the 88th minute, and Politano added the finishing touch with a penalty in stoppage time.
Napoli has risen to third place in Serie A following their commanding 4-0 victory over Lecce.
With four consecutive goals in their recent games, Napoli carries significant momentum as they prepare to face Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Lecce is eager to bounce back as they host Sassuolo in their upcoming Serie A fixture next weekend.
