The two Nigerian players are set to go head-to-head on the opening day of next season following the release of league fixtures
Victor Osimhen will come up against Tyronne Ebuehi on the opening day of the 2021/2022 Serie A season. The fixtures for next season was released on Wednesday, and one of the matches of the opening weekend will see Napoli host the newly-promoted Venezia.
The Venice-based side signed Ebuehi on a loan deal from Benfica this summer, while Osimhen is on the books of Napoli, and will be hoping to build on his solid finish to last season.
The Nigerian international missed more than three months of action last season, but still managed to score 10 league goals, including seven in the last 11 games.
Meanwhile, both Osimhen and Ebuehi are likely to miss five matches at the start of the new year if they are included in Nigeria’s squad for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
