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.
