Victor Osimhen double earns Napoli 3-1 comeback win over promoted Frosinone

Reigning Serie A champions Napoli survived an early scare as they began their title defence with a 3-1 win at newly-promoted Frosinone on Saturday in the season’s league opener after Victor Osimhen scored twice.

Napoli now have Rudi Garcia in the dugout after Luciano Spalletti resigned and later took the Italy national team job and the Partenopei had a horror start when they conceded a penalty inside five minutes, which was well-taken by Frosinone’s Abdou Harroui.

Napoli recovered quickly and went ahead at halftime with a goal from Matteo Politano and a venomous strike from last season’s top scorer Osimhen.

Jaime Baez nearly equalised for Frosinone with a second-half free kick which came off the post but Osimhen sealed the three points for Napoli when he broke the offside trap and fired a low shot past the keeper in the 79th minute.
