Victor Osimhen was on target as Napoli grabbed a hugely important win at Torino in Serie A to displace Juventus from fourth place in the intriguing race for Champions League qualification.

Osimhen put Napoli 2-0 up with his seventh league goal of the season two minutes after former Chelsea man Tiemoue Bakayoko opened the scoring for Gennaro Gattuso’s men.

Rolando Mandragora then saw red for Torino as Napoli held on to win.

The win saw Napoli move past Juventus into the last Champions League qualification spot on head-to-head in what is shaping to be an almighty scramble for the top four.

With just five games to the end of the season, Napoli and Juventuss are tied on 66 points with third-placed AC Milan although Milan have a game in hand.
