Victor Osimhen stats for club in 2023/24

Victor Osimhen stats for Napoli this season are looking better than his stats for them last season. The former LOSC Lille man ended 2022/23 with the Capocannoniere and the Scudetto, scoring 31 goals and providing five assists in 39 games in all competitions. That is 36 goal contributions, which means that he only failed to contribute a goal or an assist in three of the games he participated in.

Breaking down those numbers further, we see that 26 goals and all five assists came in the Serie A where he played 32 games. That is 31 goal contributions which also means that he only failed to contribute a goal or an assist in one game.

This season has started similarly for the striker – he suffered the first of his two injuries before December; in September 2022 to be exact. This time around, he has scored six goals and provided one assist in 10 appearances in all competitions. That is seven goal contributions, meaning that he has only failed to contribute a goal or an assist in three of the games he participated in until his injury on 13 October 2023.

The numbers are similar but seeing that his scoring and assisting rate has not dropped, it is unwise to put a ceiling on Victor Osimhen stats this season.

Victor Osimhen stats for country in 2023/24

Counting Victor Osimhen stats for country using the club football season calendar may not do much justice to his impressive stats for the Nigeria national football team. For that reason, we will highlight his stats for Nigeria in 2023 as a whole and then break it down into the numbers he has put up since the 2023/24 club season international breaks started.

It is important to note that Victor Osimhen has the best goal-to-game ratio for the three-time Africa Cup of Nations winners. With 20 goals in 27 appearances, the former VfL Wolfsburg striker has already broken Rashidi’s goal-to-game ratio and is on course to break his all-time record of 37 goals in 58 matches for Nigeria.
