Osimhen’s Ban Reduced, to Star Against Juventus

The two-match ban imposed on Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen by the Italia Serie A have been reduced to a match. Osimhen was on target as Nigeria defeated Cape Verde 2-1 in the race to Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The Nigeria international was sent off the opening game of the season against Venezia and was subsequently fined and suspended for two games.

After missing the game against Genoa, the club chooses to appeal the ban and to get the match reduced.

The appeal committee of the football body met on Tuesday and after much deliberations and discussions, the ban was reduced to one game.

The outcome of the appeal means that Osimhen will be available for the Napoli clash against Juventus this weekend.
