Numbers don’t lie they say. The Norwegian trumps the Nigerian in all areas of comparison including market value. Judging by the numbers, Erling Haaland is a better player than Victor Osimhen. Having no senior international title is the only thing both players have in common.


Goals win games and for a striker, anything other than scoring goals is extra.

From this Haaland vs Osimhen stats comparison, it is clear that Haaland has more career goals and averages a higher goal-to-game ratio than Osimhen. The Man City star is a serious contender for the 2023 Ballon d’Or award alongside Messi. Many believe he should emerge winner despite Lionel Messi’s World Cup conquest. Come what may, the Norwegian will find himself on the podiums of every award this year; whether as best or second best.

 All this is not being said to take credit away from the Nigerian. Osimhen has arguably been one of the best goal-scorers in the game in the last couple of years and is easily ranked in the top five centre-forwards in world football.

 At the moment, the Napoli star’s exploits in front of goal are still miles behind that of the Man City attacker. Maybe swapping the blues of Napoli for the whites of Real Madrid or the reds of Bayern Munich is what the Nigerian require to truly compete with the insane numbers of the Norwegian – only time will tell. But at the time of this inscription, Erling Haaland remains a better footballer than Victor Osimhen.
