Victor Osimhen Insigne stepped up, but it was a dreadful weak and central spot-kick that Vanja Milinkovic-Savic saved almost effortlessly. Napoli did have the ball in the net in the 56th minute with a smart free kick, however, after a very long VAR check, it was ruled marginally offside. Torino , which had another Nigerian, Ola Aina, in their squad, had their own fair chance too but denied by the heroics of Ospina from point-blank range. Victor Osimhen The breakthrough Napoli caved for finally came in the 81st minute when they battered their way through the Torino defences with a storming team attack.
