Osimhen May Get Bench Role In Juventus Vs Napoli As Gattuso Considers 4-3-3 Formation

Victor Osimhen is likely to start from the substitutes’ bench when Napoli clash with Juventus at the Allianz Stadium , Turin, in their third Serie A game of the 2020/21 season on Sunday.

Osimhen was a 60th minute substitute in the first game when Napoli beat Parma 2-0, but saw full action as the Partenopei destroyed Genoa 6-0 last weekend, making an assist.

But ahead of this weekend’s crunch tie with the reigning Serie A champions, the Nigerian striker will start on the bench as coach Genaro Gattuso returns to 4-3-3 formation.

According to Areanapoli.it, Coach Gennaro Gattuso is called to dispel with the last formation. No 4-2-3-1 and above all, no Victor Osimhen from the first minute against Juventus in Turin.

Although, the other newspapers point to the Nigerian striker as the offensive pivot of Gattuso’s team for the next matchday of Serie A, La Gazzetta dello Sport go in the opposite direction.

“That is referring to a Napoli ready to take to the field with the 4-3-3 and then line up without the former Lille striker who should instead start from the bench and then come in when needed,” Areanapoli.it reported.

Osimhen on the other hand said that he was looking forward to coming up against Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo in the Serie A this season after joining Napoli from Lille in July.

Napoli’s first tough fixture of the season will be away to champions Juventus on matchday three. The game will see Osimhen come up against Ronaldo for the first time in his career.
