It’s another Sunday with no shortage of football actions across leagues in Europe, Africa and Asia, and Nigerian footballers continue to hold sway amidst the frenzy.
Headlining the Super Sunday programs in the Premier League is the mouthwatering clash between second-placed Leicester City and defending champions Liverpool at Anfield – Liverpool, England. Leicester City travels to Merseyside without Super Eagles midfield maestro Wilfred Ndidi (groin injury), while his compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho is available for selection.
Liverpool went into the international break on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run, though the national team distractions could hardly have gone worse for the Reds, after a number of key players were added to the club’s lengthening list of injuries.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho were already sidelined before Joe Gomez suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury while on England duty, while prolific winger Mohamed Salah tested positive for COVID-19 in Egypt.
Leicester City hasn’t won at Anfield since 2000, though the high-flying Foxes, led by former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, will feel they have a huge opportunity this weekend to end their double-decade long wait for a victory on Merseyside.
City was in the midst of an impressive six-game winning streak in all competitions before the pause button was pressed on domestic football, and with big-game specialist Jamie Vardy leading the line, Leicester will be going for the jugular.
In the Italian Serie A, Napoli will be without the injured Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen (arm injury) when they entertain high flying AC Milan at Stadio San Paolo – Naples, Italy.
Without a draw in 16 competitive games (W10, L6), Napoli are narrow favourites here, despite trailing AC Milan by three points. They have won five (L1) of their last six Serie A (SA) home matches, with Napoli winning the second half with a clean sheet in four of those five victories.
AC Milan remains unbeaten in the league (home/away) since the end of last season’s COVID-enforced hiatus (W14, D5). Eleven of those wins came via a 2+ goal margin, while eight of the last nine wins therein saw Milan lead at HT by one goal. In turn, Milan boast an impressive 73.33% rate of HT/FT doubles across their last 15 SA wins.
Other Nigerian players expected to be in action today include Ola Aina for Fulham at home to Super Eagles teammate Alexander Iwobi’s Everton; Tyronne Ebuehi for FC Twente at home to Dutch Eredivise title hopeful PSV; Saturday Erimuya for Cadiz at home to Spanish La Liga leaders Real Sociedad.
