The hot-shot Osimhen, who has now scored 23 goals across all competitions for arguably the most exciting squad on the continent, has propelled them to an almost likely domestic victory and a strong showing in Europe.

Randal Kolo Muani, a France attacker who was suspended after receiving a red card in the first game, was not there for Eintracht, and the Bundesliga team barely caused Napoli any trouble.

Oliver Glasner’s team exits the competition on a night when their supporters caused considerable mayhem in Naples despite the fact that there were no tickets available for away supporters.
