Diaspora, Africa – (African Boulevard News) – Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has solidified his place in Napoli’s history books as he played a pivotal role in helping the team secure their first Scudetto in 33 years. While the championship race is over, there is another competition that Osimhen has to keep an eye on – the Capocannoniere race.
Lautaro Martinez, the Inter Milan forward, is closing in on Osimhen in the race for the top scorer award. Martinez has scored 26 goals this season, just one behind Osimhen’s 27. Although Napoli has secured the Scudetto, Osimhen’s personal achievement is also at stake as he aims to become the highest scorer in Serie A this season.
Osimhen’s form has been impressive this season, scoring important goals for Napoli, including a brace in their title-clinching win over Fiorentina. His contribution to the team’s success has been commendable, and he has shown that he is capable of being one of the best strikers in Italy.
However, Martinez is not an easy opponent to defeat. The Argentine forward has been in sensational form this season, and his scoring prowess has been one of the highlights of Inter Milan’s campaign. He has the ability to score from any position, and his partnership with Romelu Lukaku has been deadly for the Nerazzurri.
With just one game left in the season, Osimhen will have to be at his best to keep Martinez at bay. The Nigerian striker is aware of the challenge and has vowed to give his best in the final game of the season.
In an interview with Soccernet.ng, Osimhen said, “Being the top scorer in Serie A would be a great achievement for me, but it is not something that I am solely focused on. Our last game of the season is very important, and I want to help my team end the season on a high note. I will do my best to score and help my team win the game.”
The battle between Osimhen and Martinez for the Capocannoniere title is set to be an interesting one, and football fans around the world will be eagerly watching to see who emerges as the top scorer in the Italian league.
In conclusion, while Napoli celebrates their Scudetto victory, Osimhen still has some unfinished business to take care of. He has proved himself as one of the best strikers in Serie A this season, but he will have to be wary of Martinez in the final game of the season. Both players have been outstanding this season, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in the race for the Capocannoniere award.
