Five players set to catch the eye in Europe this week.
The second round of the Champions League is finally upon us and with it there are bound to be some standout performances to come with it. Here, we have attempted to pinpoint who exactly we think will be set to make an impact for their sides.
5. Radja Nainggolan – Roma
The Belgian international only made his way to the Italian capital this summer, sneaking his way in during a busy transfer window. The side have a new look about them this term and one of the more impressive performers has been the 26-year-old.
Facing Manchester City, Nainggolan will have his work cut out for him in keeping Yaya Toure quiet, but what whats their midfield battle so interesting is that they share many of the same qualities. Both will be looking to direct the play through the middle, and the result could well depend on which one of them fancies it more.
