Napoli’s star forward, Victor Osimhen, sustained an adductor muscle injury during the international break while playing for Nigeria’s national team, which will keep him out of the upcoming Serie A fixture against AC Milan.

Osimhen has been in excellent form this season, leading the Serie A scoring charts with 21 goals and contributing significantly to Napoli’s lead in the title race with a 19-point gap over second-placed Lazio.

He is expected to miss the Seria A games against Milan and Lecce but will be tested for availability against Milan in the Champions League.

Although his absence will be felt in the upcoming match, Napoli will survive without him as his injury is not severe enough to impact the rest of the season.
