Talismanic maskman, Victor Osimhen hit another milestone and set a Napoli record in the Partenopei’s 2-0 away victory over Sassuolo at Stadio Mapei – Citta del Tricolore on Friday night.
The Nigerian became the first Napoli player to score in 7 straight Serie A games, netting his 100th career goal in the process.
Gonzalo Higuain scored in 6 straight league games back in 2015/16 season.
Osimhen doubled the lead for the Azzurri with a screamer from a near-impossible angle in the 33rd minute. He received a long ball from central defender Matthias Olivera and overpowered two Watermelon Peel defenders then strike home a worldie leaving Napoli fans in the stadium drooling.
A 12th-minute moment of magic by the Georgian George Best, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia earlier put the visitors in front before Osimhen’s masterclass.
The Super Eagle achieved his new milestone of a 100th career goal in just 197 games.
It took Messi 210, Drogba 236, Ibrahimovic 245, and Ronaldo 301 matches to reach 100 senior goals.
With the win, Napoli are now eighteen points clear on top of the Serie A table. Osimhen also increased his goal tally to 18 in 19 appearances this campaign.
