Osimhen and Rashford are most lethal strikers in Europe’s top five divisions in 2023

Nigeria and Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen and Manchester United free-scoring star, Marcus Rashford are the two players from Europe’s top five divisions who have scored 10+ goals across all competitions in 2023.

Osimhen who is the top scorer in the Serie A with 19 goals has scored 11 times in 11 matches so far this year while Rashford has netted 14 times in 16 appearances.

The bulk of the goals scored by the Nigerian came from the Serie A where he has scored 10 times in nine games with the goals coming in his last eight straight games in the competition.

Osimhen, whose goal against Empoli last weekend made him the second youngest player (24 years, 58 days) in the three points for a win era to find the net in eight Serie A games in a row, behind only Roberto Muzzi (23 years, 165 for Cagliari in 1995) scored his 11th goal in Napoli’s 2-0 UEFA Champions League win at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Rashford also scored eight of his 14 goals in eight Premier League appearances in 2023. Four of the goals came in four EFL (Carabao) Cup matches with one each scored in the FA Cup and the Europa League where he scored in the 2-2 draw at Barcelona.
