Africans in UEFA Champions League action, Tuesday 31 October

Manchester United’s Eric Bailly

Graeme Jackson

Tuesday Oct 31, 2017. 10:00


Eric Bailly’s Manchester United will look to book a place in the knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League when they host Benfica at Old Trafford in one of eight Matchday 4 fixtures tonight.

Bailly made a return to the Red Devils’ line-up this past weekend and helped the team record a 1-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur. If Jose Mourinho’s charges can get the better of their Portuguese opponents and Group A rivals Basel avoid defeat at home to CSKA Moscow, then United will be safely through to the last 16.

Elsewhere, Thomas Partey’s Atletico Madrid are in need of a home win over Azerbaijani side Qarabag, having failed to win away to the minnows in Baku earlier this month, while Victor Moses remains sidelined for Chelsea ahead of their trip to Italy to face Roma.

In Group B, Henry Onyekuru and Kara Mbodji’s Anderlecht are staring down the barrel of a fourth successive defeat when they face French giants Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes, while the other match sees Celtic looking to get revenge against Bayern Munich after a 0-3 loss in Germany last time out.

Seydou Doumbia will look to inspire Sporting Lisbon to a home win over Juventus in Group D, with the other match from the pool a clash between Emmanuel Emenike’s Olympiakos and Spanish giants Barcelona.

Africans in UEFA Champions League action - 18 October

Chelsea’s Victor Moses (L) vies for the ball with Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli (R)

Graeme Jackson

Wednesday Oct 18, 2017. 15:00


AfricanFootball looks ahead to the African interest in tonight’s UEFA Champions League Matchday 3 fixtures across Groups A to D.

In Group A, Manchester United will hope for the return from injury of Eric Bailly when they face Benfica away from home. If the Ivory Coast star cannot recover from the knock he picked up on international duty earlier this month, it could result in new signing Victor Lindelof making a start against his former club.

Bailly’s compatriot Serey Die and Egyptian Omar Gaber will hope to feature for Basel when they face CSKA Moscow in Russia.

The early match this evening will see Thomas Partey’s Atletico Madrid chase a much-needed win away to Azerbaijani club Qarabag, while Victor Moses will miss Chelsea’s home clash with Roma after injuring his hamstring over the weekend.

Anderlecht’s trio of Kara Mbodji, Sofiane Hanni and Henry Onyekuru will look to make a name for themselves when they play host to mighty Paris Saint-Germain, while Medhi Benatia and Kwadwo Asamoah could see playing time for Juventus at home to Seydou Doumbia’s Sporting.

Finally, Emmanuel Emenike, Pape Cisse and Alaixys Romao’s Olympiakos have a mountain to climb when they face Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

UEFA Champions League fixtures, Wednesday 17 October
