UCL Wrap: Henry Hits Bar; Moses On The Mend; Aaron Benched; Nura & Emenike Not In 18It was another disappointing outing for Henry Onyekuru and his Anderlecht side as they fell to a 4-0 loss to PSG at the Constant Vanden Stadium.

Onyekuru, who went the full ninety for the Purple and Whites outfit, was booked in the 55th minute of the encounter,unusually proving lethargic in front of goal after fluffing a couple of first half chances.

Di Maria, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani got the goals for the Paris side as they kept up their hundred percent record in the competition while their opponents are all but eliminated.

The Nigerian frontman wasted a huge chance to reduce the deficit in the 79th minute as his shot hit the crossbar.

Elsewhere,CSKA Moscow's Aaron Samuel could not make it off the substitute bench as the Moscow side were brushed aside by their Swiss opponents, Basel 2-0.

Taulant Xhaka had opened the scoring early on with a sweetly struck volley before Dmitri Oberlin rounded off the scoring at the stroke of full time.

The 23-year-old has made just one appearance in the elite club competition this term,a run out against Benfica in their first group game.

Former Nigeria international Emmanuel Emenike was not in Olympiakos's 18 against Barcelona. It finished 3-1 with D. Nikolaou (OG), Lionel Messi and Digne finding the net for the Spanish club.

As expected injured Victor Moses (Chelsea) and Nura Abdullahi (Roma) didn't figure as their respective teams shared the spoils (3-3) in an entertaining clash at Stamford Bridge.

David Luiz and Eden Hazard scored to give the Blues a 2-0 lead, but the Serie A side fought back, scoring three goals through ex-Manchester City stars Kolarov and Eden Dzeko (2), before Hazard's equalizer.
