Nigeria international Victor Osimhen is set to start for Lille OSC against Olympique Marseille on Sunday.

This is despite the lethal striker having suffered an injury scare during the team’s clash with Angers SCO last weekend.

Lille coach Christophe Galtier has now provided an injury on Osimhen ahead of their clash with Marseille.

“Victor trains normally, he does 100% of the sessions. He ended up with a cramp (in Angers),” Galtier told the media.

“As he is a young player, he is still discovering his body. He had felt pain a few minutes before and we had decided to replace him.

“And on his last action, he got down on the ground feeling sharp pain, but it was just a cramp. Now he knows what it is.”

Osimhen has been in top form this season having netted 17 goals across all competitions making him Lille’s top scorer.

The highly-rated marksman has netted 12 goals in the Ligue 1 this season.
