    Osimhen by far better than Abraham of chelsea.

    Very good performance by Olayinka. Kept Semedo on his toes throughout the game.
    Slavia Prague as a team came to Nou Camp to play. They played with aggression and desire, and could have nicked a win with a little good fortune.
    Barca played well, but we know they can do much better. One thing that would really help their cause is if Messi decides to start passing to Griezmann. It was almost funny watching these two today. Abi dem quarrel for dressing room?

    Yes, Lille is good for Oshimen’s development but Oshimen is a destined star player. I won’t advise him to stay long at the Club. The Level at which his other Team-mates play is just so poor. Oshimen is the one who runs to the Middle to pick up passes by himself and takes it upfront to score! If not, he won’t even touch the ball all through 90 mins. Imagine where Oshimen is playing in front of better Midfielders like Coutinho, Messi, Silva etc The boy will keep scoring and making name for himself. The whole world will know Oshimen. So my own advise is if a Big Club comes calling for him soon with assurance of Starting games, He should MOVE!
