Football - Serie A: Victor Osimhen on the heels of George Weah

Scorer against Sampdoria on Sunday in the 17th day of Serie A, the Neapolitan striker Victor Osimhen now has ten goals in the league. He also equals a record of George Weah.

Victor Osimhen is currently unstoppable in Serie A. The Neapolitan striker confirmed his great form of the moment on Sunday 8 January against Sampdoria (2-0) on the occasion of the 17th day of the Italian championship. He once again guided his team to victory by opening the score in the 19th minute of the match for his 10th goal in Serie A. He became the second African player to score 10 or more goals in three different seasons in the Italian top flight.

The former Lille man scored 10 goals in 24 games in 2020-21. For the 2021-2022 season, he had finished the championship with 14 goals in 27 games. And here he is already at 10 pions in 13 games for this new campaign. Only the African legend and Ballon d'Or 1995 Georges Weah has achieved the same feat with AC Milan (11, 13 and 10 goals between 1995-1998).

With ten goals, Victor Osimhen leads the league's top scorers ahead of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez (8 goals) and Spezia's Angolan striker M'Bala Nzola (8 goals).

The Super Eagle scores a goal every 83 minutes in the league. He also has the most enviable goal/game ratio in Serie A with 0.77 against 0.47 for his direct pursuers.
