Chipolopolo strikers Patson Daka and Fashion Sakala hope to put their FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar heartbreak behind them when resume their push for honours elsewhere in Europe with their respective clubs over the next 48 hours.

Patson’s English Premiership side Leicester City and Fashion’s Scottish side Glasgow Rangers are in UEFA Europa League action on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

Leicester are in Russia this evening where Patson and his teammates are visiting Spartak Moscow in a Group C fixture on match-day-three of the competition.

The English club is seeking its first Group C win where they currently sit bottom of the log with 1 point from two games played tied on points with Napoli who are above them at number three.

Leicester are two points behind second placed Spartak while Polish club Legia Warsaw head Group C on maximum 6 points

Patson will be hoping for his third Europa League appearance with Leicester and also build on the momentum of his debut goal for the club in last Saturdays 4-2 home EPL victory over Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Fashion will be in action 24 hours later at home against Danish club Brondby as Rangers hunt for their first points in Group A.

Rangers are bottom of Group A on zero points while Brondby are third with 1 point trailing Czech club Sparta Prague who have 4 points and French club Olympique Lyon who lead on 6 points.

Fashion has been restricted to a substitute role and like Patson has also yet to score his debut goal in Europe.
