Napoli confirmed a second-degree lesion in Victor Osimhen’s right femoral bicep, but the Nigeria international has already begun his recovery program.

He hadn’t trained with the rest of the group in the two days before the match but was still included in the starting XI as he seemed to have recovered from a minor muscle injury.

The 23-year-old underwent medical examinations in the morning which highlighted a second-degree lesion in his right femoral bicep.

Napoli confirmed that the player has already begun treatment.
