Tammy Abraham scored his 16th and 17th goals of the season on Friday in AS Roma's final Serie A match of the season.
His brace helped his team complete a 3-0 win over Torino and secured 6th place in the table, along with Europa League football next season.
Although the Romans might have expected more at the start of the season, i.e. champions league football next season, on a personal note for Abrahams, it's been a good season.
Abrahams Becomes Serie A Record Breaker
His double in this match saw him become the highest scoring English player in a Serie A season. He beat the previous record of 16 goals, held by Gerry Hitchens since the 1961-62 season (playing for Inter Milan).
After the match, the former Chelsea and Aston Villa striker said "it's been a good year for me, I hope to build on this year and hopefully we can finish with a trophy and it can be the perfect year."
Abrahams has always been regarded as one of those players just below the Champions League level. When he left Chelsea for £34 million last August, it was a gamble for both the player and the club.
Fortunately for both, the gamble appears to have paid off.
2021/22 Europa Conference League Betting
Abrahams and his AS Roma team are also in the Europa Conference League final against Feyenoord this Wednesday. Hence they played a couple of days earlier than the rest of Serie A this weekend.
The betting sees Jose Mourinho's Roma team as favourites in both the betting to win the trophy, and 90 minutes betting.
