Victor Osimhen and fellow Super Eagles forward Ademola are the two leading scorers in the Italian Serie A and they proved it again this past weekend.
The big striker was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in a narrow home win over Zulte Waregem, but there is no denying the fact that he put in a superb shift for Union St.Gilloise to stay in the chase of table toppers Genk in Belgium.
The Super Falcons star scooped the Spanish Super Cup in super style to add to her already impressive trophy cabinet. Oshoala delivered a late strike in a 3-0 win over Real Sociedad for Barcelona to record their fourth Super Cup triumph. This was her third such triumph.
The former FC Cologne defender was the late match winner for Udinese at Sampdoria to give his Serie A club maximum points on the road. It was also his first-ever goal for Udinese. His club are now seventh in the standings with a healthy 28 points halfway through the campaign.
The Super Eagles star striker is simply unstoppable after he netted his 13th Serie A goal at neigbours Salernitana for Napoli to win 2-0 and consolidate their leadership. He also has three assists to his name this season. On this evidence, both Napoli and Osimhen continue to look good for their third Scudetto since 1990, when the legendary Diego Maradona inspired them to glory. Napoli have thus hit the magical 50-point mark halfway through the season. Little wonder that Napoli’s latest hero was front page news in the local media to celebrate his latest exploit.
