Five Nigerian stars will be on parade for various clubs on Tuesday and Wednesday in the UEFA Champions League, with three of them seeking progression into the last 16.

Brown Ideye (Olympiacos; group F): The Greek giants will join leaders Bayern Munich in the next round should they beat Arsenal in a straight shoot-out for second spot. The striker has only netted once in this campaign. Both clubs have raked in nine points from five games so far.

John Obi Mikel (Chelsea; group G): The English Premier League champions need a draw against second-placed Porto to secure progression to the knockout phase.  Following his bench role in recent games, the midfielder may not feature for the team tonight. The London club currently tops the table with 10 points from five games.

Moses Simon (Gent; group H): Should they win at home against already-qualified Zenit St. Petersburg, the club will become the first-ever Belgian side to progress to the knockout stages. The team is second in the group with seven points from five matches.

Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow; group B): The forward and his team can make the Europa League if they beat PSV Eindhoven away by more than one goal. The winger, who is currently out of form, will be in the lineup for Tuesday’s game. 

Nosa Igiebor (Maccabi Tel-Aviv; group G): The Israeli club are already eliminated from the competition after failing to win a single game. The Nigerian player and his team mates will now focus on their local league, to defend the title they won last season.
