Striker Victor Osimhen is a doubt for tomorrow’s Serie A match between Inter Milan and Napoli due to a muscle problem.

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

Inter and Napoli are in some ways 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, both 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 Vs Napoli Serie A Clash

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

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

Therefore, if the problem persists, then Osimhen could be out of the Napoli squad.

Today’s training should be decisive. If the 25-year-old former Lille and Wolfsburg man is able to complete a normal training session then he will be in the squad.

But the Partenopei will not take risks if there are still lingering issues.

In the event that 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 compared to the Nigerian.
