UCL: Musa Faces Man United Test; Mikel, Ideye, Simon Hopeful

By James Agberebi:

The UEFA Champions League matchday three resumes this week with some mouth-watering encounters involving Nigerian stars led by Ahmed Musa.

On Tuesday, former West Brom forward, Brown Ideye, and his Greek side Olympiakos will travel to Croatia to be guests of Dinamo Zagreb.

After a disappointing opening day loss to Bayern Munich, Olympiakos, against the odds, beat Arsenal 3-2 at the Emirates, with Ideye featuring in the encounter.

And with Ideye finding his scoring touch again, after hitting the back of the net in two back-to-back league games, Olympiakos could emerge from Zagreb with a decent result.

In Group G, Nosa Igiebor's Maccabi Tel Aviv will have their work cut out when they will face Portuguese giant FC Porto inside the Estadio Do Dragao.

It has not been a good campaign for Maccabi so far after losing two games on the bounce. A 4-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and a 2-0 home defeat against Dynamo Kyiv have put the Israelis in a difficult position.

And it remains to be seen how they will cope with a Porto side who have been in superb form, winning four of their last five games and also topping the Portuguese league and their Champions League group with four points.

Also in Group G, Mikel Obi and Chelsea will hope to build on their weekend league win against Aston Villa when they will be guests of Dynamo Kyiv.

It has not so far been a good season for the English Premier League champions following some poor results. And a loss against Dynamo Kyiv could make things a bit tricky for the Blues.

Also on Tuesday, another Nigerian who is expected to be in action is Moses Simon, whose Gent side will face Valencia in Spain in a Group H clash.

Gent are yet to pick a win after two games, drawing one and losing one. And judging by Valencia's home record against Belgian opposition, which has seen them secure four wins, a draw and a loss, they look sure bet for a win.

And on Wednesday, the biggest match that will involve a Nigerian player is a Group B match involving CSKA Moscow with Super Eagles skipper, Musa, welcoming Manchester United.

Both teams have three points from two games and will come into the tie on the back of impressive wins in their respective league games at the weekend.
