Champions League: Fabio Capello makes claim about Osimhen
Former England manager Fabio Capello has claimed that the availability of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will make the difference in their Champions League quarterfinal first-leg tie against AC Milan on Wednesday night.
Napoli are hopeful that Osimhen will be fit for the clash against AC Milan at home.
Osimhen is still recuperating from a muscle injury.
The Nigerian international suffered a tear in his adductor muscle while on international duty with the Super Eagles last month.
“Napoli has strengths and weaknesses. One? Di Lorenzo’s one-on-one with Leao is hard. "Milan will think about this, then it will depend on Osimhen,” Capello told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Pioli these days will have to understand how not to let him get the ball while Spalletti will work on his head: he must convince Napoli that they are fine, even if in Lecce.”
