Efe, Joel In Europa Battle

Nigerian stars Efe Ambrose and Joel Obi will battle it out in the Europa League round of the 32 after Monday’s draw pooled their respective teams together.

According to the draw, Ambrose’s Celtic will travel to Italy to face Obi’s Inter Milan in the first leg, before Inter head the other way for the second leg as both teams will be keen to make it to the Round of 16 and thereafter progress further.

The Inter match up will indeed reignite fond memories amongst Celtic fans as the draw brings back memories of the most famous match in the club’s history, the 1967 European Cup final which Jock Stein’s ‘Lisbon Lions’ won 2-1.

Meanwhile, some fixtures involving Nigerian players will see Ike Uche’s Villarreal battling Salzburg from Austria, while Haruna Lukman’s Ukrainian side will face Guingamp.
