Iwobi, Musa Ready For Champions League Challenge


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
Despite not playing any role in Arsenal's 1-1 draw against Manchester United at the weekend, Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi could be given the green-light to confront PSG at the Emirates Stadium in Tuesday's Champions League tie.

The Nigerian international shone brilliantly when both sides met in Paris back in September, in a match that ended 1-1. His sterling performance earned him a starting shirt ahead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in subsequent matches, of which he has become an integral part of the team this ongoing season.

Having featured in four Champions League matches, Iwobi, who has been criticized for not scoring goals by team's coach, Arsene Wenger, would be hoping to improve on that against a PSG side that will be parading players such as Edinson Cavani, Lucas Moura, Angel Di Maria, Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti.

Meanwhile, Super Eagles winger, Ahmed Musa will be hoping to maintain his place in the team as Leicester City host Club Brugge at the King Power Stadium in today's Champions League clash.

A win or draw for the Foxes will automatically earn them qualification to the knockout stages of the competition, their first since the club was created in 1884.

Musa, who has made four appearances in the Premier League, scoring two goals, knows that they must shoulder the goal scoring responsibilities to seal top spot in the group.
