Champions League: Musa Aims For a Start Against Porto


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
Super Eagles winger, Ahmed Musa would be hoping to get a look in from manager, Claudio Raneiri as Leicester City welcome Porto to the Kings Power Stadium in match-day two of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The reigning Premier League champions began their continental campaign with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Club Brugge a fortnight ago, away from home thanks to goals from Marc Albrighton and a double from Riyad Mahrez. They were comfortable within 30 minutes and fully warranted their first win in European competition since beating Glenavon in the 1961-62 European Cup-Winners Cup.

The Nigerian international came on from the bench to replace James Vardy in the 70th minute as he made an appreciable impact to the delight of the travelling Foxes fans.

Musa, who is yet to hit the Premier League headlines with goals after a superb preseason campaign, will be desperate to get the attention of Raneiri, in a bid to steal a spot in the starting 11 in tonight’s Champions League match against Porto.
