Several African stars will be looking to grab the limelight during Thursday’s UEFA Europa League Round of 16 matches.

Arsenal, who boast two world-class attackers in Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, will be away to Greek giants Olympiacos Piraeus.

The duo played an instrumental role in helping the Gunners overcome Newcastle United in an English Premier League match last weekend.

Their local rivals Manchester United will be away to Belgian champions Club Brugge, who have talented South African attacker Percy Tau on their books.

Ivorian central defender Eric Bailly is expected to start for United after helping the team keep a clean sheet in their recent Premier League win over Chelsea.

Zambian starlets Datson Daka and Enock Mwepu will be keen to help Austrian champions RB Salzburg secure an away win against German side Eintracht Frankfurt.

While Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam will look to Moroccan playmaker Hakim Ziyech when they lock horns with Spanish outfit Getafe.

Inter Milan, who have Nigerian utility player, Victor Moses, on their books, will travel to Bulgaria where they are scheduled to take on Ludogorets.

Lastly, Moses’ countryman Joe Aribo will be looking to inspire Scottish giants Rangers to a home win over Portuguese side Braga.
