Rome, Sept. 29, 2020 (dpa/Naija247news) A muscular injury suffered by Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne during Sunday’s league game now means he is likely to miss next weekend’s classic at Serie A champions Juventus.
The Naples club said on Tuesday that the striker pulled the biceps femoris, which is part of the hamstring muscle group, in his left leg during the 6-0 win against guests Genoa.
He exited in pain 22 minutes into the first half.
Besides the Sunday game in Turin, it is believed that the 29-year-old international will also miss Italy’s UEFA Nations League matches against Poland and the Netherlands.
The UEFA Nations League matches are billed for Oct. 11 and Oct. 14 respectively.
