Oshoala, Nwabuoku, others face tough UWCL second leg tests

14 October 2015, 13:51

Lagos - Nigerian players in the UEFA Women's Champions League are locked in tough battles as they bid to fire their teams to the next round of the competition.

The tie of the second leg appears to be between Evelyn Nwabuoku and Adule Charity's BIIK Kazygurt coming up against highly fancied Barcelona Ladies at the Mini Estadi.

Barcelona earned a 1-1 draw in Kazakstan, but the visiting team are a different kind of opponent when they are on the road.

Another big match-up involving a Nigerian is the Liverpool Ladies versus Brescia CF tie. Asisat Oshoala has been named in the squad and she is expected to start the game after having a 45-minute playing time in Italy last week.

Uchechi Sunday, whose goals have been crucial for recently crowned Belarus Women's Premier League champions Minsk will lead the line once again as they face Chichi Igbo's Fortuna Hjørring in Denmark. Other Nigerians in the Minsk line-up are Onome Ebi, Gift Otuwe and Esther Sunday.

Ogonna Chukwudi and Sarah Michael who were both pivotal for KIF Orebro in the first leg 3-0 win against PAOK have been tipped to consolidate on their amazing form at Behrn Arena.

Elsewhere, Ebere Ngozi's PSG will hope to consolidate on their 6-0 first leg advantage with a home fixture against Olimpia Universitatea.

The second legs of the ties are scheduled for 14th and 15th October.
