Napoli’s Osimhen sets unwanted Serie A record in win against Torino:: All Nigeria Soccer
Victor Osimhen is nearing the best form of his professional career, with a goal involvement of five (4 goals, 1 assist) in his last six matches in the Italian Serie A.
Though the Napoli number 9 received praises for his goal in the 2-0 win at Torino on Monday, he set an unwanted Serie A record during the game at the Stadio Grande Torino.
It has been revealed by football statistics website Whoscored that Osimhen missed four clear-cut chances in last night’s win over Torino, a record in a Serie A game this season.
Of the six shots he attempted, four were on target with one ending up in the back of the net in the thirteenth minute.
The brilliance of Salvatore Sirigu denied Osimhen from scoring on two occasions in the second half, with the Torino goalkeeper making unbelievable saves with his feet.
And in the first half, the Nigeria international missed a sitter when he fired a shot off a Torino defender.
Having picked up a booking midway through the second half, Osimhen was replaced with ten minutes left on the clock.
