Osimhen sent off against Venezia

 

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen was shown a straight red card as they won 2-0 at Venezia on Sunday.

It was their opening game of the 2021/2022 Serie A season.

Osimhen was sent off for violent conduct on Daan Heymans before a corner-kick in the 23rd minute.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Luciano Spalletti’s men held their nerve and prevented their opponents from scoring.

Lorenzo Insigne and Eljif Elmas both scored in the 62nd and 72nd minutes respectively to ensure they got maximum points.

Osimhen will now miss Napoli’s next two Serie A matches against Genoa and Juventus.

The 24-year-old scored 10 goals in 24 Serie A matches last campaign.
