Hirving Lozano is running as the starter in the face of the important clash this Saturday at the Camp Nou between Barcelona and Napoli, corresponding to the return of the knockout stages of the Champions League. For this commitment, it should be remembered that Gennaro Gattuso has very difficult to count on his offensive reference, captain Lorenzo Insigne who ended up injured in the last game of Serie A. Despite this, the coach of the Italian team left the door open for his battering ram could finally be at the Barcelona stadium this coming Saturday.
The Italian striker (Lorenzo Insigne), who had scored 2-1 against Lazio; suffered a muscle injury to the abductor after a change of pace with five minutes to go. The Neapolitan forward left visibly affected, knowing that the injury would prevent him from being at the Camp Nou on August 8. Now Gattuso will have to improvise. The options to supply the Italian striker are several; but the Mexican would be convincing the coach after his performances, especially after the stoppage by Covid-19. Chucky has gained prominence in this second stretch of the season; and Gattuso has used it out of nine during the sanction of Martens and the injury of Milik.
In addition to the Mexican, Matteo Politano or Jose Callejon could also occupy that position. Milik could be his natural replacement in principle but in the last few hours. There has been special tension between the former Ajax and the Naples coach. Who publicly took his departure at a press conference. That is why, today and as the situation with Milik is it seems that Lozano has more options to relieve Insigne in the lead against Barcelona.
