Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of the Nigeria-eligible players who were on parade for their respective clubs on matchday two in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, October 28.
 
At Old Trafford, Odion Ighalo was an unused substitute as Manchester United hammered last season's surprise package RB Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford.

It was a phenomenal performance from Marcus Rashford, the England striker coming off the bench to score a 27-minute hat-trick in between goals from Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial.

At the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, De Jong's brilliant volley in the 56th minute secured all the three points for Sevilla in a 1-0 win against French visitors Rennes.

2004-born midfielder Lesley Ugochukwu watched proceedings from the bench for the entirety of the game in southern Spain - his first squad involvement for Rennes. 

In a Group F clash at  Jan Breydelstadion , Club Brugge and Lazio shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw.

Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis started for the Belgian champions but was replaced two minutes from time after he was shown a yellow card midway through the second half, while David Okereke was a unused substitute.

Correa gave the Italians the lead in the 14th minute but a penalty converted by Vanaken three minutes before the interval secured a point for Club Brugge.

At the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu (Istanbul), former Nigeria U23 skipper Azubuike Okechukwu is still on the mend and was not in the Istanbul Basaksehir side beaten 2-0 by PSG.

Everton loanee Moise Kean grabbed a second half brace for last season's beaten finalist.

In Russia, Chelsea registered an impressive 4-0 win against Krasnodar, with Hudson-Odoi opening the scoring in the first half before late goals from Werner, Ziyech and Pulišić added gloss to the scoreline.

England youth international Faustino Anjorin was not in Chelsea's traveling squad though he has been registered for the Champions League via the List B.
