Striker Victor Osimhen will be fit to start for Napoli in tomorrow evening’s Serie A match against Inter Milan.

This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInterNews. The broadcaster report that the 25-year-old Nigerian international completed a full training session today.

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 To Start For Napoli In Serie A Clash Vs Inter

Napoli will also be getting a big boost in terms of fitness for tomorrow’s match.

Former Lille and Wolfsburg striker Osimhen will be available for the match.

The 25-year-old had been a doubt for the match. This was due to a minor muscular knock that he picked up in training yesterday.

Therefore, today’s training session was decisive to determine Osimhen’s condition for the match.

Had the striker been unable to train normally today, then it would not have been at all likely that he would start against Inter tomorrow.

Giovanni Simeone would therefore have been ready to deputize for the Nigerian, at least from the start.

But according to Mediaset, Osimhen’s fitness scare proved to be a false alarm.

The 25-year-old was able to complete a full training session with the rest of his teammates today.

Therefore, Osimhen will be in the starting eleven as the reigning Italian champions aim to reassert themselves against this season’s league leaders after a difficult season.
