The biggest game of the second match day of the UEFA Champions League group stage will be in Naples, with Victor Osimhen headlining the event.

The Nigerian superstar took the Serie A by storm last season after giving warning of his capabilities in previous seasons.

Osimhen won the Capocannoniere award in the last campaign after scoring 26 Serie A goals.

The Nigerian also led the Partenopei to the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League last term and would want to do better this season.

The Partenopei will host the most successful team in the competition in their fifth meeting, with the previous encounters posting negative results for the Neapolitans.

So, you're wondering where to watch Osimhen in this tasty tie.

Osimhen is built for these games. The boy from Olusosun has a big heart and a desire to succeed. 

From his modest beginnings, Osimhen has risen to the top of the game, but the Napoli star is aiming for more conquests.

With five goals in this campaign, Osimhen has proved that he has plenty in his arsenal. He is second on the Capocannoniere chart behind Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez.

The former Lille striker is the arrowhead of Napoli. 

While Osimhen is doing the business for the Partenopei, Jude Bellingham has been the star for Los Blancos.

The former Dortmund midfielder has fitted into the Santiago Bernabeu side seamlessly. He is the top scorer for the club and in La Liga with six goals and two assists.

Both sides go into this game off the back of fine wins this weekend. 

While Napoli hit Lecce with four unreplied goals (Osimhen scored one after coming from the bench), Real Madrid beat Girona 3-0, with Bellingham scoring the third before being substituted.

Napoli is third on the Serie A table behind Inter Milan and AC Milan, while Los Blancos returned to the top of La Liga this weekend.

Victor Osimhen will be playing against Real Madrid for the first time. The four times Real Madrid and Napoli have clashed have seen the Spanish side nicking three wins and one draw.

They are yet to lose to the Italian side and would want to keep it that way.

The tie has produced 12 goals, with Real Madrid scoring nine and conceding three.

The scorers for Real Madrid are Tendilo and Michel on September 16 1987, Emilio Brutagueno (September 30 1987), Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos, Casemiro (February 15 2017), Sergio Ramos and Alvaro Morata (March 7 2017).

Playing and winning the Champions League is the pinnacle of club football for most players. 

Having tasted the sweetness of winning a title, the hunger for more is tough to satiate.

Osimhen will want to go far in the competition and where else to prove his mettle, but against the best.
