Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Nigeria international, Jamilu Collins will make his 20th Bundesliga appearance for SC Paderborn 07 against Bayern Munich tonight (Friday) at the Allianz Arena, Completesports.com reports.

Collins has been a regular starter for Paderborn after playing 19 German top-flight games this term with a goal, two assists, six cautions and a red card to his name.

The Super Eagles defender, however, scored an unfortunate own goal that condemned Paderborn to a 2-1 Bundesliga defeat to Hertha Berlin at the Benteler-Arena last Saturday.

25-year old Collins who was a huge doubt for the match had a hand in Hertha’s winner after Matheus Cunha’s back heel took a deflection off his on the way into the net.

The Kaduna-born left full-back got booked for a foul in the 73rd minute but still completed the entire game, making two clearances, three tackles and three interceptions.

Against Bayern, Collins will be facing the wrath of Robert Lewandowski. Ironically, his only Nigerian’s Bundesliga goal this season came in a 3-2 loss to Bayern in the reverse fixture in September.
