After trailing 2-0 after the first leg, Frankfurt battled back in an even first half. The match (if not the tie) hung in the balance until Osimhen hung with great balance – almost levitating – and planted a stunning header beyond Kevin Trapp from Matteo Politano’s cross moments before half-time.

If Napoli’s first goal was a display of individual brilliance, the second was all about the team, with Osimhen forcing the ball in from close range after a flowing team goal. Piotr Zieliski added more gloss for the home fans midway through the half, picking himself up after being tripped by Djibril Sow and firing in from the spot.

Steffen Potter, Frankfurt reporter

Tonight we saw the end of an incredible two years in UEFA club competition for Eintracht. They won the UEFA Europa League last season and in the process eliminated several clubs that usually play in the Champions League. They made their debut in Europe’s premier club competition this term, navigating a tough group before meeting the might of Napoli. The Italian side were simply too good; no shame. Rest assured, Frankfurt will be back.


Victor Osimhen, Napoli forward: “We want to enjoy the moment and look ahead. It’s a great win. We are rewriting the history of this club. We keep dreaming, we have no limits.”

Luciano Spalletti, Napoli coach: “It wasn’t easy, but we managed to reach a historic target for Napoli. At first they attacked us, we struggled to play as a team because they were pressing high up the pitch. In the second half we managed to do better.”
