However, Balogun had to go off on 64 minutes due to a hamstring injury and was replaced by Calvin Bassey.

Joe Aribo was also in action for the Scottish champions who are now in third place in the group.

Other scorers for Napoli are Lorenzo Insigne (76th minute) and Matteo Politano (95th minute).

With Thursday’s win, which was Napoli’s first in the group stage, they go second on four points.

And in another Europa League game played, Paul Onuachu could not inspire his Belgian side Genk, as they lost 3-0 away to West Ham United.

The defeat leaves Genk bottom in Group H with three points.

Onuachu was on from the beginning of the game before going off for Ike Ugbo in the 73rd minute.

And in the Europa Conference League, Stephen Odey got two goals which helped Randers force Jablonec to a 2-2 away draw in Group D.

The former MFM striker drew Randers level in the 36th minute before getting on the score sheet again from the penalty spot in the 90th minute to make it 2-2.

It was Randers’ third straight draw and are third in the group.

Odey has now scored in three consecutive games and netted four goals in his last three games.

Also, he has found the back of the net eight times in 10 appearances in all competitions since joining Randers on loan from Genk.

And in Group H, Francis Uzoho could not inspire Omonia Nicosia to a first win as they lost 3-1 at Basel.

They are last in the group with just one point after three games played.
