In LaLiga, Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze, showcased his exceptional form for Villarreal, scoring the first goal in their 3-0 triumph over Osasuna.

The match was close, with just four points separating the two teams at the start.

Chukwueze scored an impressive volley in the 14th minute to steady the Yellow Submarine. It was his 22nd goal involvement of the season.

However, Villarreal’s substitute, Jose Luis Morales, scored a phenomenal goal from near the halfway line, increasing their lead in the 85th minute.

Osasuna then conceded an additional goal in stoppage time courtesy of Morales again, resulting in a disastrous outing for them.

Villarreal’s victory takes them to the sixth position in the league, four points behind Real Betis in fifth and seven points behind Real Sociedad, currently holding the last UEFA Champions League spot.

Chukwueze continued his impressive streak, scoring his third goal in five La Liga games for Villarreal, and justifying his inclusion in the Super Eagles team to face Guinea-Bissau.

The 23-year-old is one of only three LaLiga players, alongside Vinicius Junior and Antoine Griezmann, who have scored and assisted over 10 goals in all competitions this season, with a perfectly balanced record of 11 goals and 11 assists in 2022/23.
