Osimhen Seeks To Extend Goal-Scoring Form Against Torino

Osimhen Seeks To Extend Goal-Scoring Form Against Torino

Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen will be seeking to extend his goal-scoring as Napoli visit Torino in tonight’s Serie A clash at the Stadio Olimpico Grande.

The Nigerian international netted a goal in the team’s 5-2 whitewash of Lazio last week Thursday after replacing Dries Mertens in the 72nd minute.

The strike was Osimhen’s third goal in his last five league appearances and he appears to have rediscovered his goalscoring touch after enduring a nine-match goal drought earlier this year.

The 22-year-old has now scored six goals after 18 appearances in his debut, Serie, A campaign following his big-money move from Ligue 1 club Lille last August.

Napoli coach, Gennaro Gattuso will be banking on Osimhen’s goal-scoring prowess to help the team overcome a Torino side that is fighting to avoid the drop.

    And he has done so…7 goals now and 4 in his last 6. We’re starting to see the real VO! 10 goals is within reach

    …Welldone Victor Osimhen, I hope your team mates play more with you. It is still evident to see… strange set of Napoli forwards all competing for goals haul… Man is unmarked in the box but would often not see the ball simply rolled unto his path! It is well…

  • 1 goal to Victor Osimhen. Well done boy. The guy has goals in him. Although he is played as a lone striker in Napoli’s formation, it is clear that he is not the main striker in the team. That title belongs to CAPTAIN INSIGNE! Insigne is a really good player. Fast, skillful, creative, has an eye for goal but some times or most times he is selfish with the ball. He would rather shoot at goal than pass a simple ball to a free teammate to score. He should know that as the captain of team he has as much responsibility to ensure his team succeeds on the pitch.
    He should borrow a leaf from jaime vardy who while wasnt scoring goals was busy creating them for his teammates. Now that’s a real leader. Not caring about personal glory but but the well being of the team above selfish pride. I feel Osimhen would have scored a lot more goals if he was receiving the amount of passes from his teammates that players like onuachu, iheanacho, moffi, sadiq are receiving from their teammates in their club.
    But its all good, he has been scoring regularly of late. Hopefully, the other players in the team will begin to pass to him more often and the goals will continue to flow freely.
