There are plenty of midweek football actions across Europe, Africa today. While some top European leagues are on hold for Cup games, the focus in Africa is on both CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup, both of which are still at the preliminary rounds.
Two Nigerian clubs remaining in both competitions, Enyimba and Rivers United have tricky away ties to negotiate.
While Enyimba play away to the Sudanese side Al-Merreikh in the first leg of their CAF Champions League last qualifications match, their fellow NPFL side Rivers United travel to South Africa to take on Bloemfontein Celtic also in the first leg of their CAF Confederations Cup preliminary match.
Elsewhere, in England, two Nigerian players – Alexander Iwobi and Odion Ighalo go head to head as Everton and Manchester United clash in the quarter-final of the EFL Cup otherwise known as Carabao Cup at the Goodison Park.
Fresh from three superb Premier League victories on the bounce over Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal, Everton come into Wednesday’s Carabao Cup Quarter Final purring with confidence.
The in-form Toffees will feel they have
opportunity to go all the way in this season’s League Cup, and having gone several decades without silverware since their 1995 FA Cup triumph, the Blues will be desperate to progress.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decisions to make this week, and with a huge Premier League tussle with Leicester City on the horizon, the Norwegian is almost certain to make changes to his team for United’s visit to Goodison Park.
United won 3-1 on Merseyside when they last travelled to take on Everton in the Premier League back in early November, though several of the star performers that day could miss out for Wednesday’s rematch.
In the French Ligue 1, Super Eagles forward Moses Simon is expected to lead the attack for Nantes in their difficult away encounter against Lyon at Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
Olympique Lyon’s title charge continued with a 4-1 hammering of Nice, as they picked up their ninth win of the Ligue 1 (L1) campaign (W9, D6, L1), and seventh in which they led at HT. Unbeaten at home in L1 this calendar year (W6, D5), Lyon now have the chance to go unbeaten in a full year at home for the first time since 2008.
A 1-1 draw last time out extended Nantes winless run to seven games (D4, L3), six of which saw both teams score. The visitors have struggled on the road this L1 campaign (W1, D2, L5) with their average of 1.0 goals scored per game mostly to blame, although with just two of their away games goalless at HT.
