With his goal against Cremonese in the second half on Sunday, Victor Osimhen became the first Napoli player since Gonzalo Higuain to score in six successive Serie A games.
Higuain, a former hitman from Argentina, accomplished it in the 2015–16 campaign.
At the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona, Osimhen scored from close range as Napoli smashed 3-0 to increase their lead atop the standings to 16 points.

The international striker from Nigeria has eight goals in his last six Serie A contests.
With 17 goals in 18 games, the 24-year-old is presently Serie A’s leading scorer.
