UCL: Osimhen Targets First Lille Goal, Olayinka Faces Dortmund Test

Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen will look to open his UEFA Champions League goal account for Lille when they take on Chelsea in their Group H clash today (Wednesday) at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Osimhen was caged in Lille’s matchday one clash against Ajax Amsterdam which they lost 3-0.

The 20-year-old has scored six goals in eight league appearances for Les Dogues this season and will be determined to replicate the form in Europe.

Chelsea, who lost their opening day clash 1-0 to Valencia of Spain are expected to parade their Nigerian-born duo, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori in the game.

At the Sinobo Stadium, Praha, all eyes will be on Peter Olayinka as his Czech club, Slavia Prague tackle Borrussia Dortmund at home.

Olayinka scored Slavia Prague’s only goal in the 1-1 against Inter Milan in their first group game.

The Nigerian also scored the decisive goal for the side in their 1-0 league win against Mlada Boleslav last Saturday.

Belgian champions, KRC Genk with their Nigerian imports, Paul Onuachu and Stephen Odey will be up againsg Napoli at home.

  • Gone are the days when our indigenous coaches used to tell us that some players are not ripe for super eagles,
    the likes of chukweze,osimhen, ejuke,dennis,kalu,and maja could be tagged as not ripe for super eagles instead they will go for players like brown ideye,nwakeme,ujah,efe ambrose,oboabona,ejide and others.

    Today is showdown between Osimhen vs Tammy, lets see who will bang in the goals. Nigeria vs England. I hope Victor carries the day. Even if Chelsea wins, I need our current no. 9 to score today. All the best to Victor Osimhen.

    Mehn` just took some time to watch YouTube videos of that Ejuke guy and honestly dude got crazy talent from crossing with his left foot, quick mind blowing runs and dribbles down the flanks, loads of shots in both foot, blind spot on passes and up through balls to locate his team mates who are left in shock of he managed to find them…
    In short; that boy is a full package!!!
