 Osimhen Is Second Best In Shots, Aerial Duels, Most Points Won, Ball Recoveries Final Third In Ligue 1
Lille have highlighted some of the key statistics of Victor Osimhen after twenty eight matches in the French Ligue 1.

According to the official website of Les Dogues,  Osimhen is second in shots with 86 and only Kylian Mbappe (87) has so far done better than the Nigeria national-teamer.

From his 86 shots, thirteen have ended up in the back of the net, making him the fourth highest goalscorer in the division behind Mbappé and Ben Yedder (both 18) and Dembélé (16).

When it comes to aerial duels, Osimhen is second with 120 headers won, behind Dijon's Dijonnais Julio Tavares (176).

In the opposing area, the Super Eagles has touched the ball 154 times and he's third best in that category with only Mbappé (209) and Ben Yedder (156) having superior statistics.

Osimhen's goals have won the second most points for his team, 12 in total, one less than Rennes forward M'Baye Niang.

The 21-year-old is the second most effective player in ball recoveries in the final third with 22.

At this stage of this season, Moussa Sow (19 in 2010/11) and Nicolas Pépé (17 in 2018/19) have scored more goals than Osimhen over the past 40 seasons.
