Victor Osimhen is still expected to start for Napoli against Udinese tonight, but pressure is piling up on the defending Serie A champions and coach Rudi Garcia.

Napoli host Udinese at the Stadio Maradona at 19:45 BST tonight.

The Partenopei striker Osimhen is expected to start in attack even if his agent Roberto Calenda has threatened to sue the club following a video published by Napoli’s official TikTok account where they appeared to mock their striker.

Osimhen reacted by deleting almost all Napoli pictures from his Instagram account.

The Nigeria international is still expected to start in attack tonight alongside Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Matteo Politano.

Garcia is already under pressure having earned just eight points in the opening five Serie A games, so this is a must-win for the Partenopei.

Udinese are one of the four Serie A clubs with still no victories this season. The Bianconeri have scored just one goal so far.

Napoli-Udinese: probable line-ups

Napoli (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Ostigard, Natan, Mario Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia.

Udinese (3-5-2): Silvestri; Perez, Bijol, Kristensen; Ebosele, Samardzic, Walace, Lovric, Zemura; Lucca, Success.
