In what appears to be Nigerian players’ affairs, Leicester City comparing Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho will face Victor Osimhen of Napoli after being handed a tough Europa League group stage draw.
The Foxes joined Napoli in Group C from Pot 2, and will also have to face a long trip to Russia to play Spartak Moscow.
In addition to these tough assignments, Brendan Rodgers’ side will also battle with Polish side Legia Warsaw.
West Ham, meanwhile, should have a more straightforward time of things, having drawn Dinamo Zagreb, Genk and Rapid Vienna.
The Croatians were among the teams out of Pot 1 that Hammers fans will have fancied their chances against.
While Belgians Genk and Austrians Rapid provide winnable match-ups for David Moyes’ team.
Scottish champions Rangers will face a pair of tough clashes with Lyon.
While Steven Gerrard’s men will also return to Czech Republic to play Sparta Prague, following last season’s unsavoury experience against Sparta’s rivals Slavia.
