FC Zurich’s Odey looking forward to Bayer Leverkusen clash

After scoring against Luzern, the 20-year-old forward admits he cannot wait for his side’s Group A meeting with the Germans

Stephen Odey is looking forward to Thursday’s Europa League game against Bayer Leverkusen.

The Nigerian was on target for the City Club as they spanked Luzern 5-2 in Sunday’s Swiss topflight encounter against Luzern to take his tally to nine goals from 14 encounter.

He would be hoping to find the net again when Ludovic Magnin’s men visit BayArena for Thursday's Europa League clash.

The reverse fixture in Zurich ended 3-2 in favour of the Swiss side with the Nigerian getting a goal alongside Antonio Marchesano and Toni Domgjoni.

FC Zurich lead Group A with nine points having won all their matches in this season’s competition.
