Onyekuru, Idowu Clash In Champions League

Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru will be aiming to make his first UEFA Champions League appearance with Galatasaray when they host Bryan Idowu’s Lokomotiv Moscow in a group D encounter at the Turk Telcom stadium Arena, Istanbul.

Onyekuru has scored twice in five Super Lig appearances for Galatasaray this season. He made his debut with Anderlecht in the competition coming on as a substitute for Nicolae Stanciu in the 59th minute of the encounter.

The 21 year old made six appearances last season with Anderlecht and failed to score in those encounters.

Idowu on his part has failed to make a league appearance this season for Lokomotiv Moscow but has been included in the match day squad for the encounter.

At the Veltins Arena in ‎Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem will be hoping to make his UEFA Champions League debut on Tuesday after he was included in FC Porto’s 22 man match day squad to face German side, Schalke 04.
