Victor Osimhen was in the stands for the draw with Genoa, and Walter Mazzarri warns that he “might not” be ready to face Barcelona either.

The striker left his team-mates at the end of December to take part in the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria. He scored just one goal and helped his team reach the final. Although the final took place last Sunday, Osimhen didn’t return to Naples until late Thursday evening after missing a flight, and his first training session took place on Friday. Mazzarri warned DAZN that Osimhen “might not be” ready to play against Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday. “We can only hope that he can be ready, but his presence is not certain. According to him and the medical staff, he is far from being in top form, with a few muscular problems. After the African Cup of Nations, it would have been foolish to risk him here and risk losing him for a few more months. He’ll be training tomorrow and we hope he’ll be ready for Barcelona.
