Samuel Chukweze side, Villarreal, won Barcelona 2-0 away from home to secure an European place.
The yellow submarine knew they had to win in order to seal their 7th position and qualify for the European Conference League next season.
The Super Eagles forward, 23, only played 11 minutes but was important in defending and maintaining their 2 goals lead against the Catalans.
This was the first league win for the Unai Emery’s side over Barcelona at Camp Nou courtesy of a great finish from Alfonso early on in the game and a terrible pass from Adama Traore to set up Gomez for the second.
This victory meant that the Champions league semifinalists have edged Athletic Club to qualify for the European Conference League.
