Osimhen Shown his First Career Red Card In Napoli’s Defeat Of Real Sociedad
The Nigeria international was sent off for the first time ever as the Parthenopeans picked up an away win against Imanol Alguacil’s men
Victor Osimhen was shown a red card in Napoli’s 1-0 triumph over Real Sociedad in Thursday’s Europa League clash.
The Nigeria international who joined the Italian Serie A outfit from Lille was shown the way out
by referee Craig Pawson in the third minute of added time for a second caution.
After replacing Italian forward Andrea Petagna a minute after the hour mark,
Osimhen was first cautioned in the 81st minute before
he was given the marching orders 12 minutes later after elbowing Robin Le Normand while trying to control David Ospina’s goal kick.
That was the first time the 21-year-old striker was given sent off since he moved to Europe in 2017.
He is expected to miss the Blues’ trip to Stadion Kantrida for a date with HNK Rijeka on November 5.
After a losing start against AZ Almaar, Gennaro Gattuso’s men returned to winning ways thanks to Matteo Politano’s 56th minute strike.
Thanks to that result, they are third in Group F with three points from two outings.
