Serie A: Osimhen breaks record as top scorer

Victor Osimhen has made history as the first African to be crowned the highest goal scorer in Serie A.

Osimhen is also the first player to combine that with the Scudetto since 2009.

His closest rival, Lautaro Martinez, fired blanks in Inter Milan’s victory against Torino on Saturday night.

Martinez is on 21 goals and cannot go beyond that tally, while Osimhen is too far out in front on 25 goals.

Former Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the last player to combine both the Scudetto and the top scorer award for Inter Milan in 2008/09.

Osimhen is the fourth Napoli player to win the award, following in the footsteps of Diego Maradona, Edison Cavani, and Gonzalo Higuain.

Napoli won the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years.
