Napoli star expected to miss Leicester City clash

Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne is not expected to be fit to face Leicester City in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.

Il Mattino claim today that Insigne will be rested for the game against the Foxes, as the Italian is still recovering from an injury which has troubled him in recent days. Luciano Spalletti will not take the risk of starting him and he is expected to be on the bench at most.

Hirving Lozano, as a result, is expected to start in the Euro 2020 winner’s place in the left wing role. Insigne had picked up the injury against Juventus, who the Partenopei had beaten 2-1 this past weekend.
