Napoli talisman Victor Osimhen dropped another remarkable performance against Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Champions League, with his individual performance making for a sensational viewing.

The 24-year-old starred as Napoli thumped the Bundesliga outfit 3-0 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium to book their place in the quarterfinals of the UCL with a resounding 5-0 win on aggregate.

The Super Eagle gave the Serie A leaders the lead on the stroke of halftime following an inch-perfect cross from Matteo Politano down the right flank.

Osimhen, who was well-positioned inside the penalty area met the cross with a brilliant header into the far corner leaving Kevin Trapp no chance.

The Nigerian striker grabbed his second on the night later on in the second half before Piotr Zielinski added the third to seal a convincing victory for Luciano Spalletti's side.

The ex-Lille striker has so far managed 4 goals in the UEFA Champions League and 23 goals in all competitions for the Naples-based club this term.
