UCL: Iwobi Eyes First Goal; Musa, Iheanacho Set To Start

By James Agberebi:

The final round of games in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League takes centre stage with Super Eagles trio of Ahmed Musa, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho expected to feature for their clubs.

On Tuesday n Group A, Arsenal who have already qualified for the next round, must beat Basel in Switzerland and hope leaders Paris Saint-Germain don't beat Ludogorets in France in order to finish ahead of the French champions.

Iwobi who is yet to score for Arsenal this season, has played in all of the Gunners' group games, providing an assist in their 1-1 opening game against PSG.

At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City will welcome Celtic in an inconsequential game in Group C also on Tuesday.

Win or lose, City are already guaranteed second place behind Barcelona.

In line to start his first match in this season's UEFA Champions League is Nigerian Iheanacho who has played just once for City in this season's campaign.

The 20-year-old came on as a substitute in City's 4-0 home win against Monchengladbach, scoring the fourth goal.

And on Wednesday in Group G, Musa will hope to add to his third appearances for Leicester City who had already qualified for the next round.

Musa started one game and was brought on twice as a substitute in the three games he has played so far played for Leicester.
