Ideye, Moses Target Europa League Spot


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
Super Eagles duo of Brown Ideye and Moses Simon will be hoping to book their place in the group stages of the Europa League as they face Arouca and Lokomotiva Zagreb on Thursday.

Having won their first leg 1-0 away last week, Olympiacos must avoid a defeat if they are to qualify to the next round of the competition. Goals from Sebastião Seba in the 27th minute separated both teams; however, it would take an element of luck for Arouca to overturn the result considering the fact that the host has made their stadium a slaughter slab for opponents.

Ideye would be targeting another starting shirt and victory on Thursday in a bid to keep his hope of winning a European laurel at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Victor Moses is poise to make his presence count as Gent take a trip to confront NK Lokomotiva at the Stadion Kranjčevićeva.

Moses, who has been a regular starter in the team, will be hoping to deliver the goods for Gent in terms of scoring goal. The first leg ended 2-2 last week and a win for Gent will automatically qualify the team to the group stages of the competition.
