Big-name African players will be in action in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

Moroccan playmaker Hakim Ziyech and his Ajax Amsterdam are set to take on English giants Chelsea in a Group H encounter.

Dutch champions Ajax will look to Ziyech as they look to avenge the 1-0 defeat they suffered against Chelsea two weeks ago.

While Liverpool FC, who have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane on their books, will face Belgian champions Genk in a Group E encounter.

Senegal vice-captain Mane and Egyptian winger Salah were on the score sheet as English giants Liverpool thumped Tanzania captain Mbwana Samatta’s Genk in Belgium.

Meanwhile, Nigerian hitman Victor Osimhem is set to feature for Lille OSC when they square off with Spanish outfit Valencia in a Group H game.

Osimhem has been in top form for Lille this season having netted seven goals in 12 Ligue 1 matches.

Lastly, Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly is expected to lead Napoli’s defence when they battle with Austrian champions RB Salzburg in a Group H encounter.

The highly-rated defender will be eager to ensure that the Italian side keeps a clean against Zambian striker Patson Daka’s Salzburg.
