It was a relatively good outing for Nigerian players in the UEFA Europa League as the duo of Samuel Chukwueze and Stephen Odey continued their impressive form in the competition to score or their respective clubs.
However, the same could not be said of the duo of Uche Agbo and Samuel Kalu who failed to progress beyond the group stages despite earning impressive results away from home.
Samuel Chukwueze: The Eagles forward scored his second goal of the competition opening scoring for Villarreal in their 2-0 win over Spartak Moscow to give new coach Luis Garcia a winning start to his time with the Spanish outfit.
Stephen Odey: The former MFM star also scored his second goal in the competition heading home the opener for FC Zürich in their 1-1 draw away at Ludogorets Razgrad with the result enough to see Zürich qualify comfortably in group A.
Samuel Adegbenro: He was on for the entire match duration as Rosenberg ended their poor campaign with a bit of decency as they drew 1-1 away at already qualified RB Leipzig.
Samuel Kalu: The Eagles forward was rooted to the bench for the entire match duration as Bordeaux crashed out of the Europa league despite earning an impressive 1-0 win away at FC Kobenhavn.
Peter Olayinka: He was on for the entire match duration as Slavia Praha pulled off a massive result to defeat Zenith St. Petersburg 2-0 to qualify for the round of 32 of the competition.
Bukayo Saka: 17-year-old Bukayo Saka started his first professional match for the Gunners as they rounded up their Europa League group stage by defeating Qarabag 1-0 at the Emirates. Alex Iwobi was not listed for the clash
Uche Agbo: The Eagles midfielder was on for 60 minutes before been replaced by Paul-Jese Mpoku as Standard Liege missed their chances to qualify for the next round after playing a goalless draw away at Akhisarspor.
