Serie A: Injured Osimhen ruled out of Napoli, AC Milan clash

Bad news for Napoli as star striker Victor Osimhen has been ruled out of the upcoming match against Milan due to injury.

The 24-year-old Nigerian striker took part in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers during this international break, playing the full 90 minutes of a 1-0 loss to Guinea-Bissau. He did not feature in the second clash with Guinea-Bissau, which took place three days later.

As announced by Napoli, Osimhen returned from international duty complaining of discomfort in his left adductor muscle. A round of medical tests confirmed that he’s suffered a distractive lesion, an injury that could keep him sidelined for a number of weeks.

The Nigerian star will certainly miss the upcoming clash with Milan on April 2 and is also at risk of being ruled out of their two Champions League quarter-final clashes with the Rossoneri, scheduled for April 12 and 18.

Osimhen has been one of Napoli’s standout stars this season, scoring 21 goals in 23 Serie A appearances.
