Striker Victor Osimhen is doubtful for tomorrow’s Serie A match between Inter Milan and Napoli due to a muscle problem, Tony Weeler reports for Sempreinter.com.


This is according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport via FCInterNews. The newspaper reported that Giovanni Simeone would be ready to start an attack if the Nigerian missed out.

Inter and Napoli are in a similar situation heading into tomorrow’s match.


Both teams suffered the bitter blow of elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Spanish opposition during the week.


Having each gone into the second leg of their round of sixteen tie with reason for hope, both lost their away ties.


Therefore, the Nerazzurri and the Partenopei will want to bounce back tomorrow.


The Serie A clash at the San Siro will be the final fixture in the Italian top flight before the international break.


Victor Osimhen: A doubt for Inter versus Napoli Serie A clash


Moreover, Napoli may have to approach tomorrow’s match without their star man.


The Gazzetta reports that the Nigerian international picked up a muscular knock in training yesterday.


Therefore, Osimhen could leave the Napoli squad if the problem persists.


Today’s training should be decisive. The 25-year-old former Lille and Wolfsburg man will be in the squad if he can complete a normal training session.


But, the Partenopei will not take risks if lingering issues remain.


If Osimhen is to miss out due to injury, then Simeone will start.


The former Hellas Verona, Cagliari, Genoa, and Fiorentina striker has been Osimhen’s deputy throughout the season, as the Nigerian has had a few injury problems.


Simeone provides a different sort of profile to Osimhen. He is more of a physical striker with holdup play qualities than the Nigerian.
