Tuttosport: Napoli vs. Milan is Osimhen vs. Leao – a duel of two decisive forwards

By Oliver Fisher -

The game against Napoli at the Stadio Diego Maradona will feature a number of exciting battles, and the one between the two star forwards will be fascinating.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) write how Milan are not yet Leao-addicted but they are close to being that way, because they need the genius of the Portuguese winger as he is at times the only player who cane unlock games. Even against Napoli, Rafael’s contribution will be decisive as he will have to exploit the spaces and help an attack that is struggling aside from him.

His opposite number in many ways is Victor Osimhen, who is having a good debut season in Serie A with Napoli, while it is worth remembering that it took Leao three seasons to become what he is today.

The 22-year-old always showed flashes of what he could become, but over the summer something clicked and he went from being an inconsistent talent to a real gem, with 11 goals and 6 assists this season. Tomorrow he will meet Osimhen: the fate of Milan and Napoli will depend on them.
