It was a good night for the Nigerian duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa in the UEFA champions league with their respective clubs.

A hat-trick by Sergio Aguero and a late goal by substitute Iheanacho ensured that Man City continued life in Europe under Pep Guardiola with a comfortable win.

Iheanacho, fresh from his heroics in the Manchester derby, was a delight to watch again on Wednesday.‎ He scored minutes after coming in as a substitute.

There was also much to cheer for Ahmed Musa as his club Leicester City began their Champions League adventure with an impressive 3-0 win over Club Brugge in Belgium.

A brace by Riyad Mahrez and an opening goal by Marc Albrighton were enough to seal a 3-0 win over the Belgian side.

In some of the other games, Real Madrid left it late to beat Sporting CP 2-1 as they began their title defence at the Santiago Bernerbeau on a shaky note.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata were the scorers for Real Madrid.

In Turin, it ended goalless between Juventus and Sevilla.

Tottenham Hotspur were beaten 1-2 at home by Monaco while Dortmund crushed Legia Warsaw 6-0 at their backyard.
