Higuain has scored three times to break the single-season goalscoring record, as Napoli defeated Frosinone 4-0.

A wonderful overhead kick concluded an all-time season for Higuain, who surpassed Gunnar Nordahl's record of 35 goals in 37 appearances for AC Milan in 1949-50. Antonio Valentin Angelillo of Inter Milan scored 33 goals in a season. Angelillo's mark was with a 18-team league schedule. Serie A currently has 20 teams.

Higuain is expected to be officially handed a four-match ban after he was sent off in Napoli's 3-1 loss to Udinese Sunday.

This is a very significant development. This might end any hope Napoli has of winning the Scudetto. However, this opens the door for his very capable replacement, Manolo Gabbiadini, who is trying to win a spot on Italy's Euro 2016 squad.

Higuain scored his 30th goal of the season Sunday against Udinese, but also received a red card in a 3-1 loss.

Higuain played four key passes and scored a brace on nine shots during Sunday's 3-1 win over Genoa.

The runaway league-leader in scoring did it again Sunday, notching his 28th and 29th tallies in his 30th start of the season. Higuain is performing at an elite level for Napoli, and his new career-high in goals has him competing with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the race for Europe's Golden Boot. Napoli will next face Udinese on Apr. 3, and Higuain can be expected to give the 16th-place club all they can handle.
