Osimhen sent off against Venezia

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen was shown a straight red card as they won 2-0 at Venezia on Sunday.

It was their opening game of the 2021/2022 Serie A season.

Osimhen was sent off for violent conduct on Daan Heymans before a corner-kick in the 23rd minute.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Luciano Spalletti’s men held their nerve and prevented their opponents from scoring.
