Even the slightest expectation of ‘Naples pain’ disappears… Eating mustard while crying ‘fake number 9’

SSC Napoli chose the next best thing to cry and eat mustard when they were unable to appoint key striker Victor Osimen.

Reporter Fabrizio Romano, who is familiar with football news, reported on social media on the 11th (Korean time) that “Victor Osimen is expected to miss the Champions League quarterfinal first leg away from AC Milan.”

Napoli is ahead of the first leg of the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League quarterfinals against AC Milan, which will be held on the 13th at San Siro, Milan, Italy.

Napoli, which has advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time since the club’s establishment, is aiming to advance to the semifinals, but the attacking team is in an emergency ahead of an important match.

First of all, Osimen, who has scored 25 goals this season, missed all of the last two games as he returned from the Nigerian national team with a thigh injury during an A match in March.

On the 13th, Napoli lost 0-4 as a result of playing against Milan in the 28th round of Serie A in the 2022/23 season without Osimen. That’s why it was more important than anything to return to Osimen ahead of the Champions League match against Milan, but it was confirmed that it would be difficult to participate.

“According to Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, Osimen is unfortunately not in a position to play,” Romano said.

He added, “Napoli hopes to return Osimen in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final, which will be held at the home stadium on the 18th rather than overdoing it.” 토토사이트

As Osimen’s absence is expected, attention is focused on who will take the 9th position in the front line, and analysis suggests that Napoli may have an adventure number.

Currently, Napoli not only Osimen, but also back-up striker Giovanni Simeone suffered a muscle injury ahead of the Milan match and has been out of power for about a month.

Giacomo Raspadori, a young striker born in 2000, remains, but since he has not scored since October last year, there is a possibility that ace Hvica Kvarachhelia will take on the number 9 role instead.

Hvica, who scored 14 goals and 16 assists this season, is a left winger, but since there is no suitable player to take the central striker position, there is strong observation that Napoli may use Hvica as a ‘fake number 9’ in the match against Milan.
