Nigerian ace forward, Victor Osimhen, has been declared joint-top scorer in Europe’s top five leagues for the month of September, alongside Real Madrid’s prolific forward, Karim Benzema.
The Napoli goal machine scored his sixth goal in Napoli’s recent 2-0 victory over Cagliari, making it his sixth goal in five games.
Osimhen kick-started his September and the season in Napoli’s 2-2 draw against Leicester City in the Europa League on September 16 with a brace after he had failed to find the back of the net in their 2-1 victory over Juventus on September 11.
Not slowing down, the 22-year-old followed it up with a goal in their 4-0 win against Udinese on September 20 and another brace in another 4-0 win over Sampdoria, three days later.
Co-top-scorer Benzema started his goal fest for the month with a hat-trick in Real Madrid’s 5-2 win over Celta Vigo, and he scored the winning goal that helped the Santiago Bernabeu side come from behind to beat Valencia 2-1.
A week ago, the Frenchman scored a brace as Madrid outclassed Mallorca 6-1 in La Liga.
Following Osimhen and Benzema is Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland with five goals in three games, Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku with five goals in four games.
Other players with four goals include Cristiano Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah, Robert Lewandowski, Edin Dzeko, and Wissam Ben Yedder.
