Lozano scored the third goal for the Neapolitan team after he received an assist from Victor Osimhen from the right side of the field when the Nigerian entered the box. The striker of Luciano Spalletti's team found the Mexican player alone, who scored with the goal wide open.

How long has it been since Chucky scored a goal for Napoli?

Chucky had not scored a goal since his brace on January 17, when both goals helped Napoli to a 2-0 win over Bologna. In total, it was a little more than three months in which the Mexican was unable to score.

With this goal, he already surpassed what he did in the 2019-20 campaign with Napoli, which was his first season in Italian soccer after he arrived from PSV Eindhoven and was, until that moment, the most expensive signing in the club's history, since the following year, Osimhen took that place.

In that 2019-20 and after 26 games played, Lozano scored four goals against Juventus, Milan, Hellas Verona, and Genoa. Now, 'Chucky' has accumulated 28 games and scored against Udinese, Fiorentina, the double against Bologna, and now against Sassuolo.

Lozano, far from his best

Despite the national team player's good form, he is far from the 11 goals he scored in 2020-21 in Serie A, which was his best scoring campaign with Napoli and the third-best since he arrived in Europe.

Despite the victory, Napoli depends on other results to fight for the Serie A title, since with this victory over Sassuolo they would reach 70 points and would be in third place in the overall standings behind Milan and Inter Milan, who are first and second with 74 and 72 points, respectively.
