Osimhen was among the scorers for Napoli who before the start respected their previous goalkeeper Claudio Garella, a Serie A title victor during the 1980s with both southern Italy's greatest club and Verona. he later hit home Giovanni Di Lorenzo's effort in stoppage time to put the away side 2-1 ahead at half-time. Napoli has had a precarious summer in the wake of losing stalwarts Kalidou Koulibaly, Lorenzo Insigne, and Dries Mertens and leaving the fans disappointed.
Anyway, Luciano Spalletti's group was in excellent condition at the Stadio Bentegodi, with goals from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen, Piotr Zielinski, Stanislav Lobotka, and Matteo Politano guaranteeing they got off to an ideal start. Verona fought and was level right off the bat in the final part through Kevin Lasagna and Thomas Henry, yet could not compete with Napoli who won the match by 5-2.
