Champions League: Dennis, Okereke set for PSG challenge

It will be a handful for the duo of Emmanuel Dennis and Chidozie Okereke as Club Brugge host PSG in the Champions league on Tuesday.

Dennis who was part of the Super Eagles squad that played friendly matches against Ukraine and Brazil respectively was on fire against Real Madrid in the Champions league early this month and will be hoping to replicate his killer form at the an Breydelstadion.

Dennis grabbed a brace against Madrid in the tie that ended 2-2. Brugge are heading into Tuesday match on the heels of back to back victories in the Belgian league.

Their 4-0 defeat of Gent was followed by another lone goal away victory over Royal Excel Mouscron. The two victories will no doubt serve as a ginger for the Brugge side but it nonetheless will not be a tea party against visiting PSG who have recorded four victories in a roll going into Tuesday’s clash.

The French side have scored 10 goals in four matches including a lone goal against Galatasaray in their last Champions League outing.

PSG are however likely to be without Brazil international Neymar who sustained injury during the international friendly against Nigeria in Singapore.

Reports indicate that fans will have to wait for at least a month to see Neymar who has scored four goals in five league matches this season bounce back to action even as news over his possible transfer continues.

In some other fixtures lined up for Tuesday, Galatasaray host Real Madrid, Olympiakos Piraeus tackles Bayern Muchen while Juventus who will be parading Cristiano Ronaldo who only recently recorded his 700th goal will slug it out with Lokomotive Moscow.
