Napoli striker Osimhen receives first career red card in Serie A opener

The Super Eagles forward had a forgettable start to the campaign at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradonam

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen was shown a straight red card in their Serie A opener against newly promoted Venezia on Sunday. 

Osimhen was punished for a violent conduct on Daan Heymans in the 23rd minute. 

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Luciano Spalleti’s men held their visitors to a goalless at halftime.
