Slavia Praha hosts Rangers

Prior to the round of 16 draws, Nigeria Peter Olayinka club Slavia Praha outshined Leicester City who has the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi 3-1 on aggregate to book their place in the round of 16 last night.

Peter Olayinka’s Slavia Prague have been handed a fierce fixture against Scottish side Rangers football club who are the employers of Super Eagles playmaker Joe Aribo.

Rangers numbers in the Scottish League and Europa League this season are outrageous

Wins: 32
Draws: 6
Defeats: 0

The Steven Gerrard led sqaud will certainly not be a pushover for Slavia Praha who were knocked out of the Uefa Champions league down to the Europa.

Another Nigerian Samuel Chukwueze who plays for Villarreal club of Spain were squared up against Ukraine’s Dynamo Kyiv. Villarreal knocked out Salzburg of Austria 4-1 on aggregate to get to this stage. Dynamo Kyiv went past Club Brugge 2-1 on aggregate. Chukwueze who is an integral member of Unai Emery team is on course to be the latest Nigerian to win an European trophy since John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses did for Chelsea in 2013.

Round of 16 UEL Draw

Ibrahimovic will make a return to the club he won his only European trophy for Manchester United. A.C Milan since the start of the new year have looked no where near the form they started the season with, they struggled to get pass Zvezda in the round of 32. 39 Year Old Ibrahimovic who started the match against Zvezda will hope to use his deep knowledge of his old team to help Milan is breaking Manchester United. On the other hand, Ole’s Manchester United put up a shaky second leg performance against a Real Sociedad they thrashed 0-4 in the first leg.

39 Year Ibra still going strong

With Bruno Fernandes bossing stuff at Midfield and attack for Ole, Manchester United vs AC Milan has been set up to be the biggest tie of the round of 16 draws.
