Champions League: Osimhen doubtful for Liverpool clash


Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, is a doubt for Wednesday night’s Champions League game against Liverpool.

The Super Eagles star picked up a knock in their 2-1 win at Lazio in a Serie A match on Sunday.

Osimhen managed to hit five shots in the aforementioned match, one of which struck the target while the other came off the woodwork.

Goals from Ivan Provedel and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia gave the visitors three points, reducing Mattia Zaccagni’s opener in favour of the hosts to a mere consolation.

However, the win came with a price as the Naples-based team confirmed on Monday, “Victor Osimhen trained on his own following a knock that he picked up towards the end of the win over Lazio,” read the information on the club’s website.

Ajax and Rangers are the other two teams in Group A. In the past four meetings between the sides – in the Champions League, the Italian outfit secured two wins, a draw and a loss.

Osimhen has been the main man at Napoli since joining from French side Lille two seasons ago.

In the 2021/22 campaign, the West African scored 18 goals and provided two assists in the 27 Italian top-tier and five Europa League matches he played.

This season, he has already scored two goals and managed an assist in the five Serie A matches played.
