Osimhen starts from bench for Napoli in Serie A opener vs Parma

11:38 20/09/2020 The Nigerian forward has been denied the chance to make his starting debut for the Partenopei

Victor Osimhen will potentially make his long-awaited Napoli debut from the bench having been named among the substitutes in their Serie A opener against Parma on Sunday.

The 21-year-old Nigeria international has been the talk of the town since his move believed to be worth up to €80 million from Lille in July.

He will be expected to lead the frontline of the Partenopei this season, but will have to be content with the bench for the first game, hoping he can come on and make a huge impression for the first time.

At left-back is Elseid Hysaj and Giovanni Di Lorenzo is at right-back, with former Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina in between the sticks.

On the bench for Napoli asides from Osimhen are Alex Meret, Mario Rui, Eljif Elmas, Sebastiano Luperto, Nikita Contini Baranovsky, Nikola Maksimovic, Matteo Politano Algeria full-back Faouzi Ghoulam, Amir Rrahmani, Andrea Petagna and Stanislav Lobotka.
