Napoli to appeal Osimhen’s two-game ban

Napoli said on Tuesday they will appeal Victor Osimhen’s two-match suspension after the Nigeria forward was sent off in the weekend’s win over Venezia.

On Saturday, Osimhen was sent out after 22 minutes for hitting rival player Daan Heymans in their Serie A season opener.
