After scoring his sixth goal of the season for Lille on Wednesday, Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has landed himself in the Great Dane’s record book.
Victor Osimhen’s sixth goals in his first seven league games is the best start by any player in Lille ’s history in the last 50 years .
The Nigeria international put Christophe Galtier’s men ahead in the 43rd minute before assisting Loic Remy’s goal in the 64th-minute to put Strasbourg to sward.
Since making his debut for the Stade Pierre-Mauroy giants, Osimhen has scored in every home game so far and the Club has won each of those games.
The U17 World Cup winner is the joint top scorer with Lyon ’s Moussa Dembele with six goals each.
Lille are third on the French league 1 log behind leaders, PSG and Angers.
They travel to Allianz Riviera on Saturday for their next fixture against Patrick Vieira’s Nice.
