Lille Forward, Victor Osimhen has missed out on two long-standing ligue 1 record set by Former Super Eagles Player, Victor Ikpeba due to the Cancellation of the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season.

Osimhen was on Course to equal and break the record for the most goals (16) by a Nigerian in a single Ligue 1 season set in 1997/98 by Victor Ikpeba while at Monaco. Osimhen was cruising tremendously with his goal scoring form and has bagged 13 goals Already with just 3 goals left for the Youngster to equal the record. 

Osimhen was also on track to equal another of Victor Ikpeba's record for the most goals (23) in all competitions in a single ligue 1 season, set in the same Year, 1997/98 . Before the Cancellation of the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season, Osimhen had 18 goals ( 13 in the league, 2 in the UCL, 2 in coupe de la ligue and 2 in coupe de France)

Sadly for Osimhen, the record won't be broken by him this season and probably might take a long time for Another Nigerian to have a sniff at the record if the Nigerian should secure a move away from Lille. Samuel Kalu and Josh Maja both playing at Bordeaux are another Nigerian that may have a shot at the record which has been standing for 23 Years.
