Serie A: Osimhen To Face Juventus After Ban Lifted

Victor Osimhen is available to face Juventus this weekend after Napoli won the appeal to reduce his two-match ban, Completesports.com reports.

Osimhen was sent off in Napoli’s opening game of the campaign against Venezia.

The Nigeria international receive the marching order after hitting out at Venezia player Daan Heymans .

The 22-year-old was initially handed a two-match ban and missed Napoli’s win against Genoa.

Osimhen’s suspension has now been halved from two games to one, so he will be available to play against Juventus on Saturday.

The club had argued he lashed out in reaction to Heymans and did not ‘punch’ the player, as was suggested by the original disciplinary commission report.

Napoli have won both their Serie A matches so far this season, whereas Juventus have just one point from two rounds.

  • Thank God he will play Juventus…..I want him to destroy that Juventus for me……very unserious team that will allow Ronaldo leave so easily without a fight……now man utd are making mouth suddenly Because of Ronaldo.

  • Good one. Hope he learns from this and controls himself and his emotions during games. Napoli are really fighting for him. He needs to start banging in the goals for them starting with this match against Juventus.
