Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen is in line to make his first start for Napoli since his return from injury against Roma on Sunday, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Napoli will make the trip to the Stadio Olimpico to face Roma and many have wondered who will lead the line between Osimhen and Giacomo Raspadori, who was in fine form when the Nigeria international got injured. The Italian stood up to the challenge, scoring four goals in Osimhen’s absence.

However, Osimhen has made an amazing return to the team, coming off the bench to score in both games since his return; completing the scoring in a 4-2 win over Ajax and scoring the winner in the 3-2 victory over Bologna.

According to Il Mattino, Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti has already decided who will lead the line.

The Italian publication reports that Osimhen will lead the attack, while Raspadori is expected to take over later in the match.

Stadio Olimpico is expected to be packed on Sunday night as the most in-form team of the Italian league will have the chance to test themselves against Jose Mourinho’s gritty side, which most recently won 1-0 at Sampdoria.

Spalletti will be keen to get his first win over Mourinho. Both teams concluded their two match-ups last season with two consecutive draws.
