Napoli’s Victor Osimhen set to miss Genoa clash

Napoli are expected to be without the services of Victor Osimhen this weekend. 

According to a report by Sky Sports via Calcio Napoli 24, Napoli are set to miss star man Victor Osimhen for this Saturday’s Serie A match against Genoa. The striker took Nigeria to the AFCON final but became runners-up to Ivory Coast. 

The 25-year-old was awarded a medal of valour and other prizes by the Nigerian president today. The player’s arrival in Naples is scheduled for this weekend and that will practically keep him out of the contest with Genoa at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. 

As things stand, manager Walter Mazzarri will have Osimhen back in his squad for the Champions League Round of 16 clash against Barcelona next week when it will be over a month since he last appeared for Napoli. 

The Partenopei’s lethal goalscorer could only score once in this year’s AFCON while registering the most shots (24) in the competition.
