Serie A: Osimhen cleared to face Juventus this weekend

Osimhen-vs-Venezia

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, is in line to face Juventus this weekend, following the successsful appeal of his two-game ban for violent conduct against Venezia’s Daan Heymans.

The Super Eagles striker was shown a red card during the first half of their 2-0 victory by referee Gianluca Aureliano last month.

Osimhen appeared to have hit Heymans during a corner kick.

That was the second time the Nigerian had been sent off since the commencement of his professional career.

He was issued a red card for the first time during a Uefa Europa League clash against Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena on October 29, 2020.

Subsequently, he was barred from featuring in his club’s league against Genoa, which the two-time Serie A won at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

“Napoli have successfully appealed to the Sports Court of Appeal to reduce Victor Osimhen’s suspension from two games to one,” a statement from the club website read.

“Given that the striker already served the first match of the suspension against Genoa, he will be available for selection this weekend.”

This decision is a big boost for Luciano Spalletti’s men who welcome Juventus to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Saturday’s blockbuster Italian elite division encounter.
