Paul Onuachu on mission impossible as Genk face Liverpool

Onuachu goes for a header during the first leg clash with Liverpool


Super Eagles forward Paul Onuachu heads for the Anfield on Tuesday in what looks like a mission impossible for Genk in Champions league clash with Liverpool.

The Belgium side were hammered 4-1 by the Reds in front of their fans in the first leg and many believe it will be tall order to expect Onuachu and his teammates to attempt turning the table against a confident Liverpool whose teeming supporters will further compound the woes of the visitors.

Both Onuachu and compatriot Stephen Odey were in action in the last encounter with Odey getting the consolation goal for Genk but will be out of action at the Anfield having been shown the yellow by referee Slavko Vinčić in the 84th minute.

Genk have only managed a win in three Belgian league matches since hosting Liverpool losing one, drawing one and pulling a draw in one, a record which some of the fans say is disappointing going into the return leg clash with Liverpool.

Liverpool eye consolidation in return leg against Genk

The Reds on the other hand have posted impressive outings since the last champions league outing grabbing two victories in the Premier league ties against Tottenham and Aston villa respectively.

In another development Lille forward Victor Osimhen and his teammates will be hoping to have a second chance to re-write the wrongs after they failed to win against visiting Valencia in their first leg, ending the encounter at 1-1.Valencia will be hoping to consolidate banking on support of their home fans to better their first leg performance away.

Other top ties fixed for Tuesday include Chelsea against Ajax, Barcelona against Slavia Praha and Borussia Dortmund versus Italian side Inter Milan.
