Another long stop for Victor Osimhen, who suffered a second degree injury to his right hamstring during the Champions League match against Liverpool. The Nigerian was replaced in the 41st minute by Giovanni Simeone, who after only three minutes from his entry into the field realized his dream, signing the 3-0 goal for the Azzurri.
The SSC Napoli communiqué informed that the striker number 9 has already begun the therapies to return to the field as soon as possible. Despite this, a break of at least 40/45 days is expected for him. According to Corriere dello sport, Osimhen could return to the field on 12 October for the Champions League match against Ajax.
The Nigerian, therefore, will miss today’s match (also excluded from the squad list), Milan, Turin, Ajax and probably Cremonese. The newspaper also reports the data that underlines how Osimhen, during his seasons with the Napoli shirt, has already missed 32 games due to injury: between dislocation of the shoulder, fractured fracture between orbit and cheekbone, Covid and a calf problem . Also considering the three suspensions, there are 35 matches in which Napoli had to do without Osimhen.
