After Napoli successfully appealed his red card, Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen will serve only a one-match Serie A suspension.

Osimhen was sent off in Napoli’s first league game of the season after he was adjudged to have slapped a player.

He was to miss two games for the sending off, but Napoli successfully appealed to cut it to just one game.

Having already missed a game, Osimhen will be available when Napoli host Juventus on Saturday, September 11, 2021.

The 22-year-old will be aiming to quickly turn the tides at Napoli, having failed to justify his African record move from Lille in 2020.
