Osimhen Emerges Fourth Best Scorer In Ligue 1

Victor Osimhen has emerged as the fourth highest goalscorer in the French Ligue 1 this season, reports Completesports.com.

The 2019/2020 campaign was cancelled last week, following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Osimhen, who joined Lille from Belgian outfit, Sporting Charleroi last summer scored 13 goals and bagged four assists in 27 league appearances for the Great Danes.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe won the Golden Boot with 18 goals, while Monaco’s Ben Yedder came second with same number of goals.

Mbappe edged out Ben Yedder because he scored more goals from open play.
