  Napoli battled to a 1-0 win against Torino in matchday 8 of Serie A to take their tally of points to 24 points thereby continuing their perfect start to the season. The only goal of the match was scored by in-form Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen in the 81st-minute. The goal takes the Nigerian star’s tally of goals this season to 5 goals in seven matches. This means that he is now joint-third in the race for the Italian Serie A top scorer award this season.

Victor Osimhen is behind Ciro Immobile of Lazio, who tops the top scorers ranking and has scored 7 Serie A goals this season. The Italian goal-poacher scored a penalty in Lazio’s 3-1 win against Inter Milan. Ciro Immobile is followed by Inter Milan’s striker Edin Dzeko and João Pedro of Cagliari both of whom have recorded 6 goals in the Serie A this season. João Pedro scored twice in Cagliari’s 3-1 win against Sampdoria on matchday 8.

The likes of Mattia Destro of Genoa and Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan are tied with Victor Osimhen on five goals. Mattia Destro found the back of the net once in Genoa’s 2-all draw against Sassuolo on matchday 8 while Lautaro Martinez drew blank in Inter Milan’s 3-1 defeat to Lazio.

Fiorentina’s attacker Dusan Vlahovic, AS Roma’s Jordan Veretout, Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata, and AS Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini all have four goals to their names this season. Duvan Zapata scored in Atalanta’s 4-1 away win against Empoli.

Victor Osimhen has proven himself to be up to the task in Serie A this season and if he continues in this rich vein of form, he has every chance of winning the Serie A top scorers award at the end of the season. He is also likely to lead Napoli to their first Serie A title in more than ten years. If the Nigerian star doesn’t relent, many top clubs in Europe would be queueing up for his signature by the end of this season.
