Victor Osimhen’s looping header against Frankfurt has been voted the best goal of the Champions League round of 16 second-leg tie.
The Super Eagles striker scored two of three goals as Napoli defeated Frankfurt 3-0 at the Diego Maradona Stadium on Wednesday for an aggregate 5-0 win to book a place in the last eight.
Osimhen the header in the first half to complete a double over the German club – after scoring in the first leg in Germany, and also in the second leg in Italy – he became the first Napoli player to score over two legs in Champions League knockout stages.
He got his second in the second half and could have completed his hat-trick but Piotr Zielinski asked to take the penalty he would have scored for his third goal.

Surprisingly, there is none of Erling Haaland’s goals in the top four despite scoring five goals on this matchday.
