Osimhen, Napoli end season at 5th, miss Champions League

Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen's club, Napoli, failed to secure a Champions League spot for next season on the final day following a 1-1 draw against midtable Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Gennaro Gattuso's side fell to fifth place after Juventus beat Bologna 4-1 to climb one point above them in the standings.

It marks a second successive season that Napoli have failed to reach the Champions League, but this was a bitter pill to swallow as they failed to overcome the 10th-placed visitors, who had nothing left to play for.

Amir Rrahmani put the hosts in front against his former club after 61 minutes, but Davide Faraoni fired home an equaliser eight minutes later and Napoli could not find a way through as they pushed for a winner.

Napoli end the season in fifth place with 77 points, one point behind Juventus and Atalanta above them and two points behind second-placed AC Milan.
