  • 12 goals in 14 games without a penalty. What a feat. I hope you score as many as 30 goals this season.

    • He can’t achieve that without penalties, spalleti and the other Napoli teammates should give him the penalty duties cause he has a great Chance of becoming the highest goalscorer, if immobile starts now with his penalties he will easily past osimhen, Napoli has played 6 penalties in serie a none assigned to osimhen which is not professional

      • He can achieve it and he might!
        He might necessarily get to 30 goals exactly but he could score 25 or more goals. That would be great. I heard that in the history of the serie A no African player has ever topped the goal scorers chart at the end of the season. This is a chance for osimhen and lookman to make history in Italy. They need to work really hard and achieve what no other African player has achieved in the serie A before, in terms of the numbers of goals scored at the end of the season.
