Barring any injuries or loss of form, the potentially explosive clash between Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen and legend Cristiano Ronaldo will come up on October 4 going by the full Serie A fixtures released on Wednesday.
While Osimhen will make his bow against Parma in a fortnight (Sept. 20) he is billed for a tough tie in Turin away to Juventus in week 3 on October 4.
Juventus are perennial champions of the Serie A and nothing suggests they would want to relinquish that status even under their rookie manager Andrea Pirlo.
While Osimhen has already shown a glimpse of what he is capable of after netting an eight-minute hat trick in his pre-season debut, many are more interested in what he will bring to the table in the season proper.betpay & google ads
It is already known that Napoli broke the bank to sign Osimhen from Lille because they badly needed a goal-scoring machine.
It is yet to be seen if Osimhen will be anywhere near the 36 goals scored by Lazio’s Immobile last season or the 31 netted by Ronaldo.
Milik. A was the only Napoli player that scored double digits (11) last season but one can bank on Osimhen surpass that this season.
