Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen will be available for Napoli’s match against Juventus this weekend after a court of appeal reduced his suspension to just one match.

The 22-year-old was sent off after shoving Daan Heymans 23 minutes into Napoli’s Serie A opener against Venezia, and got a two-match suspension as the referee wrote in his report that Osimhen was sent off for aggressive conduct.

Napoli, on the other hand, filed an appeal, using Ciro Immobile as an example. The Italian Football Federation’s Court of Appeal upheld Napoli’s appeal on Tuesday, limiting the suspension to a single game.

The decision came after Nigeria’s 2-1 World Cup Qualifier victory over Cape Verde, in which Osimhen put in a strong display, scoring the equaliser before Cape Verde’s Kenny Santos’ own goal sealed Nigeria’s victory.

Osimhen had already served one of the two-match suspensions, in which Napoli defeated Genoa by two goals to one before the verdict was reversed.
