Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen could score his 60th goal for Napoli as they begin their Scudetto defence on Saturday (today) against promoted Frosinone.
Osimhen will be keen to replicate last season’s form in the 2023/24 season and set a new landmark by scoring his 60th goal for Napoli against the newly promoted side.
The Nigeria international has scored 59 goals in 101 appearances for the Partenopei while providing 14 assists across three seasons at the club.
While the hosts have returned to Italy’s top flight for the third time in 10 years, their first visitors stormed to the title last term; ending 33 years of wait with Osimhen at the center of the triumph.
Lifting the Scudetto for the first time since 1990 brought both relief and joy to the one-club city of Naples last season, as a scintillating Napoli side wrapped up top spot in Serie A with five games to spare.
Although a barnstorming start to the 2022/23 campaign began to falter in the spring, stars such as Osimhen – who was crowned Capocannoniere after racking up 26 Serie A strikes and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (12 goals and 10 assists in the league) – were ultimately rewarded for their brilliance; leaving runners-up Lazio and the rest of Italy’s giants trailing in their wake.
