Four minutes later, Victor Osimhen scored the game’s opener after connecting with a well timed cross from Hirving Lozano to give the away side a one goal lead into the break.
A goal which is the Nigerian striker’s 20th goal in 24 appearances this season for Napoli which includes seven consecutive goals in Serie A for the first time in the history of the club.
After the restart, Frankfurt’s Kolo Muani was given a red card for a rough challenge on Anguissa before Napoli’s captain Giovanni Di Lorenzo doubled the lead for the Italian Serie A leaders in the 65th minutes to stretch the tie further in their favor.
