Obi who has made ten Serie A appearances for Roberto Mancini’s side will be hoping to play his sixth Europa League game tonight against the Hoops who are enjoying their best form of the campaign, chalking up eighth wins on the bounce.

The 26 year old has made 16 SPL appearances so far this.
At the El Madrigal stadium in Spain, Nigerian striker Ikechukwu Uche may return to action for Villarreal when they host Red Bull Salzburg.
Uche who missed the Yellow Submarines last two La Liga games due to a groin strain returned to training with the first team on Tuesday and is in line for his fifth game. The 30 year old has scored one goal in the competition and five in 20 La Liga games.
