The Nigerian striker Victor Boniface of Bayer Leverkusen, one of the standout players of this football season in Germany, is fit and ready to resume scoring in the upcoming game against Freiburg.
In Match Day 9 of the Bundesliga, on October 29th, Bayer Leverkusen will face Freiburg in the Bundesliga. Leverkusen, currently sitting at the top of the league, will attempt to strengthen their lead, while Boniface continues to battle for the top spot in the goal-scoring race.
Since his transfer to Germany in the summer of 2023, the Nigerian striker has not missed a single game of the championship. By now he has scored seven goals, with only Harry Kane (9) from Bayern Munich and Sehrou Guirassy (14) scoring more.
In September, the Nigerian broke the league record for shots on target, a record that had held for 29 years. However, Bonifas didn’t attach much significance to this achievement
“If you have 38 shots on goal like a player, you should have scored at least 25 goals. So, I don’t want to congratulate myself on this,” as reported by Bild. Currently, the striker continues to lead in this statistic with 49 shots in eight matches.
After the departure of French froward Moussa Diaby, Boniface assumed the role of the attacking leader in Xabi Alonso’s team. Standing at 190 centimeters, the striker is well-coordinated and technically equipped. He can skillfully position himself for high passes or take the ball to the goal on his own. His playing style perfectly suits the dominant style of football adopted by the Spanish coach.
In the last match against Wolfsburg, the striker didn’t score, but provided an assist to Jeremy Frimpong. In terms of assists, Boniface shares the second position with four teammates, each having three of them this season.
Freiburg will pose a real challenge for the leaders of the Bundesliga. In the previous season no match ended in victory for Leverkusen.
The odds of Boniface scoring against Freiburg are currently 1.7 according to 1xBet.
