"Its save to say Victor Osimhen is the power house of Napoli, first match without him upfront and they are being roasted like asun by AC Milan"

@dami_mastermind tweeted:

"How did Napoli lost 0-4 at home too AC Milan. Unbelievable. Did they miss Victor Osimhen today?"

@DarkGla1ve88 added:

"With this in mind, I fear the Champions League games now. AC Milan dominated the San Siro encounter earlier in the season as well, but Napoli happened to take more chances than they did that night. Victor Osimhen will be back for them, but how much of a difference will it make?"

Osimhen out of Milan clash

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Napoli star, Osimhen being sidelined for weeks after returning to Naples with an injury following the international break.

The striker was unable to score in the Super Eagles' AFCON qualifiers against Guinea-Bissau, with Nigeria losing in Abuja before redemption in Bissau.

However, this win came at a cost as 23-year-old Osimhen suffered an injury to his adductor muscle and has been ruled out for at least two weeks.
