Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen will hope to reach the landmark when the Parthenopeans welcome the Reds and Yellows to Naples.

 

A little about the topic

The Nigerian footballer heads into Napoli’s next Serie A clash against AS Roma with a milestone in his eyes. Osimhen got a goal as the Parthenopeans suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Fiorentina, ending their chance of removing the inner diadem. If Victor finds a net against Mourinho’s men on Monday, he will equal his record of goals scored in a single European league season. During the 2019-20 season at Lille, Victor found the net 13 times, a feat that inspired him to move to the Italian giants in the elite division. Staple will see the striker from Lagos eclipse that record. Impressively, Super Eagle has been directly involved in six goals in his last three Serie A games.

Victor Osimhen is the first Nigerian in history to achieve double figures in two different Italian Elite Divisional campaigns. Victor Osimhen and Tammy Abraham are two foreign strikers who have scored the most Serie A goals in 2022. Nigerian-born English international Tammy Abraham has scored more goals than any other English player in Europe’s five leagues this season (15), while the only Nigerian to score as many goals as Victor (12) is Union Berlin’s Taiwo Awoniyi. Roma and Napoli will face for the 150th time in Serie A; 51 of the previous 149 matches ended in draws with 46 wins for Campani, 52 for Capitolini. Only against Torino the Blues have played more games in the Italian top flight (55).

 

What did Spalletti say about Victor Osimhen?

Luciano Spalletti’s players are currently third on balance beam with 66 points from 32 outings. Despite scoring against Fiorentina, Luciano’s manager claimed that Victor Osimhen was not in top form. Luciano Spalletti said that Victor still doesn’t understand the distance from his marker, sometimes he runs to the ball and has time and space to control, choose his place. He doesn’t need to rush. According to Spalletti, Victor Osimhen can start running from midfield; take on four or five defenders himself with that kind of pace, so he’s got that kind of potential. Following an impressive debut season in Ligue 1, the Nigerian moved to Naples in a €50m deal.
