Super Eagles striker, Paul Onuachu continued his impressive form in the Belgian Pro League as he scored yet another brace in the colors of KRC Genk as they defeated Royal Antwerp 4-2 at the Luminus Arena, AOIFootball.com reports.

Clearly the most in-form Nigerian striker currently in Europe, the 26-year-old led the line for the hosts for the 13th time this campaign whilst fellow countryman Cyriel Dessers continued his substitute role.

Genk were however stunned in the opening few seconds when the visitors took the lead against the run of play when Koji Miyoshi put Antwerp 1-0 up.

The goal did bring the best out of Genk as they equalized just before the 20th minute when the impressive Onuachu headed home from a Daniel Munoz cross before both players combined again four minutes later for the lanky forward to head home his second to make it 2-1.

Theo Bogonda then made it 3-1 just before the hour mark before Dessers was introduced for Onuachu with 19 minutes left in regular time.

Dieumeric Mbokani set up a nervy finish when he made it 3-2 but Dessers ensured there was no hope of a comeback when he fired home from a Junya Ito assist to seal a 4-2 win and take his tally for the season to four goals.

With his brace, Onuachu now has 14 goals for the season, averaging a goal every 83 minutes, four more than teammates Bongonda in the race for the golden boot.
