Could you please identify this plant

The plant grew as a seedling in a pot of chili plants. Seems the seed blew into the pot. The leaves look similar to a tomato plant with soft white hairs on the stem but it does not smell like tomato.

It does look like a Tomato plant leaf, if it does not have the typical smell, it is likely something in the Nightshade plant family.
