Osimhen also netted in Napoli's 2-0 win away to Atalanta on November 5 to become Nigeria's all-time top scorer in Serie A history.

For his endeavours, Opta featured Osimhen in attack in a 4-3-3 formation, flanked by AC Milan's Rafael Leão and Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez.

Osimhen's Napoli teammate Lobotka, Lazio's Milinkovic-Savic, and Inter's Barella take up the space in midfield, while Theo Hernandez, Chris Smalling, Kalulu, and Di Lorenzo are the defenders.
