Napoli v Juventus: Osimhen seeks to improve scoring stats

Victor Osimhen Victor Osimhen

Osimhen is in his third Serie A season, and all signs point to the 2022–23 campaign as the 24-year-old striker’s best and most successful yet.

After 17 games, Napoli leads second-placed Juventus by seven points.

The former U-17 World Cup winner must start scoring against Italy’s top teams, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Lazio, and Roma, as he makes tremendous advances toward the super-elite striker rank.

In those 64 games, he faced Inter Milan three times, AC Milan twice, Juventus three times, Lazio three times, and Roma four times. However, he only managed to score twice against these Serie A heavyweights—one goal against Lazio and the other against Roma.

A “golazo,” or deserving game-winning goal, was scored by Osimhen against Roma on Matchday 11 at the Stadio Olimpico to boost their bid to win the Scudetto.
