The Napoli lawyers are making a case that Osimhen had no intention of hurting Daan Heymans who was annoyingly marking him.
They will be wishing for a reduced sentence to increase the chances of having Osimhen start against Juventus on Saturday.
According to Il Corriere Dello Sport, Napoli will be illustrating their case with a similar incident took place last season. Inter midfielder Arturo Vidal had fouled Lazio striker Ciro Immobile to which the latter reacted by what was close to a slap on the Chilean’s face. Immobile had then received a one-match suspension.
