Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen is getting in gear ahead of Lille’s Champions League clash against Valencia on Wednesday night at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
The former Royal Charleroi is enjoying a debut campaign with the Les Douges having scored eight goals in 12 appearances for them. Christopher Galtier’s side face Valencia in their third match of Group H, and Osimhen has shown his readiness for the encounter.
The 20-year-old whose eight goals have all come at Lille’s home ground was seen scoring a ‘worldie’ in training today. The former Wolfsburg striker already has one goal in the Champions League and will be hoping to increase his tally when Los Ches come to town.

Meanwhile, Osimhen’s international teammate, Samuel Chukwueze has warned Valencia to be wary of the threat posed by Osimhen ahead of the Champions League encounter.
“He (Osimhen) is a great player. He has a lot of speed and (eye for) goal. He reads (the opposition) very well. He is a very complete forward, Chukwueze said.
Lille will be hoping to pick up their first win in Group H when they welcome Valencia on Wednesday night.
