Napoli defeats Frankfurt thanks to a double from Osimhen.

Napoli cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals with a comfortable win over Eintracht Frankfurt, thanks to two goals from Victor Osimhen.

With Luciano Spalletti’s side leading the first leg by two goals, the Nigeria striker’s thumping header in first-half stoppage time calmed any remaining nerves at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Eight minutes after the break, Osimhen doubled the Italians’ lead with a close-range finish from Giovanni di Lorenzo’s cross, and after being brought down in the box, Piotr Zielinski converted the penalty himself to make it 3-0.

With an 18-point lead at the top of Serie A, Napoli enters the last eight with a real chance of competing for Europe’s top prize.
