Argentina forward Lautaro Martinez closed in on Victor Osimhen in the race for the Serie A top scorer this season, after scoring in Inter’s 3-2 win against Atalanta on Saturday.
Martinez now has 21 goals this season and his two goals short of Osimhen who has 23.
The Argentine scored Inter’s third goal in the 77th minute to put them 3-1 ahead before Atalanta got their second off an own goal by Andre Onana.
The game was Inter’s 37th of the season and their last fixture is away to Torino next Sunday.
Meanwhile, Osimhen has the chance to stretch his lead in the golden boot race if he score in Napoli’s away tie against Bologna later today (Sunday, May 28).
He has already set the record for the highest-scoring African player ever in the Italian Serie A with 47 goals, overtaking the legendary George Weah.
Also, he broke Samuel Eto’o’s record as the African with the highest tally in a season, when he scored goal that clinched the title in Napoli’s 1-1 draw at Udinese.
The goal against Udinese saw Osimhen net his 22nd this season to overtake Eto’o who bagged 21 in the 2010/11 league campaign.
