Napoli received bad news for their defence this week, but goalkeeper David Ospina could be back in the squad against Spezia.

With Kalidou Koulibaly most likely set to miss the remainder of the campaign with a muscle injury and Nikola Maksimovic’s positive test for coronavirus, coach Gennaro Gattuso needs good news ahead of an important run-in.

Napoli received bad news for their defence this week, but goalkeeper David Ospina could be back in the squad against Spezia.

With Kalidou Koulibaly most likely set to miss the remainder of the campaign with a muscle injury and Nikola Maksimovic’s positive test for coronavirus, coach Gennaro Gattuso needs good news ahead of an important run-in.

Napoli are fighting for a place in the Champions League next term, as the 1-1 setback against Cagliari left them two points behind Atalanta, Juventus and Milan in the top four.

So far, the only good news concerns the Colombian goalkeeper Ospina, who has been out injured for the last four games.

La Repubblica reports the 32-year-old is better and has done some work on the pitch and aims to be back in the squad against Spezia on Saturday.

But the goalkeeper, who kept a clean sheet against Sampdoria in his last game, is only expected to be on the bench this weekend.
