Napoli are holding their breath just a few days before the start of the new season. And for good reason: two key players are currently out of action.

Yesterday, Napoli played their fourth warm-up match against Spanish club Girona. Victor Osimhen was conspicuous by his absence. According to the news, the Nigerian centre-forward is suffering from muscular fatigue, more specifically a problem with his adductor muscle. He is working alone in the gym and it is not known when he will return. The second piece of bad news concerns Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The Georgian played, but complained of knee pain. For the time being, the medical staff have not yet given any further details on how long he will be unavailable. But it’s a situation that’s certainly giving Rudi Garcia sleepless nights.
