Serie-A News: Leicester City 2-2 Napoli: Osimhen’s brace earns a point in a spectacular comeback


Victor Osimhen completed a late brace to lead Napoli from behind and save a 2-2 draw against Leicester City, who finished the match with 10 men.

Napoli were behind after just nine minutes thanks to Ayoze Perez’s first goal in 15 games in the Europa League Group C debut match at the King Power Stadium.

Harvey Barnes organized the opening and appeared to have wrapped the three points for Leicester in the 64th minute, but Osimhen put them back in the game with a beautiful lob over Kasper Schmeichel.

Osimhen then took home a dramatic 87th-minute draw to maintain Napoli’s unbeaten run at the start of the season, with Wilfred Ndidi showing a second yellow card in injury time to aggravate a disappointing end to the game for Leicester.
