Europa League: Leicester city
Zambian international Patson Daka scored Leicester city’s entire 4 goals in a goal fest match which gave them a 4:3 victory over Spartak Moscow away in Russia. That makes it 5 goals in 2 games for the former Red Bull Salzburg striker, after he scored in the EPL victory over Manchester United. Iheanacho once again assisted two of Daka’s goals, that’s his 3rd assist in 2 games; whilst ex Super Eagles player Victor Moses also had two assist for Spartak.
Goal machine Victor Osimhen just can’t stop scoring as he scored Napoli’s second goal after coming off the bench in the second half to give his team a comfortable 3:0 win after a cagey first half. That makes it 4 goals in 3 games in the Europa League and 9 goals in all competitions for the €70m striker who is now living up to his price tag.
Champions League : Villarreal
Samuel Chukwueza had a cameo by coming in the 90th minute and scored two minutes later to round up a comfortable 4:1 victory over Young Boys away in Switzerland. It should be recalled that he has been out injured with a hamstring injury for over four months and his gradually being eased back into the squad.
