The race for the Golden Boot Award in the Italian Serie A is far from over unlike the Serie A League that deals with 3 points from each win on games. Gradually Argentina’s Lautaro Martinez is closing up the gap between him and Victor Osimhen as the season remains only 3 games to end.
Lautaro Martinez’ 58th minute strike for Inter Milan against Sassuolo turned his goals to 20 for the season after a brilliant performance and an assist that could as well help him against Osimhen at the end of the season if the need arises. The Argentine has been trailing the Nigerian Striker for over 8 weeks, crawling behind the Napoli striker but the gap now has been reduced to only 3 goals following his determination and dedication to Inter Milan.
Victor Osimhen on the other side failed to find the net in Napoli’s 2-0 loss to Monza on Sunday. Victor Osimhen of Nigeria is on the virge of becoming the first African Player in the Serie A to win the Scudetto and the Golden Boot in same season after winning the Serie A for Napoli, but his inability to add to his goals tally could destroy the achievement he’s trying hard to attain this season. Osimhen have scored 23 league goals this season after playing 29 games but with just 3 games left this season, Lautaro Martinez could stop him from winning the Golden Boot.
