Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze made it back-to-back assists within the space of four days as he marked his first appearance in the cup competition with a fine display to help Villareal reach the 3rd round of the Spanish Cup, AOIFootball.com reports.
Following his impressive performance over the weekend in the league, the pacey winger was handed his debut appearance of the season in the competition with the visitors hoping to avoid the embarrassment of going down to a team three levels below them.
The 21-year-old however wasted no time as he set up Carlos Bacca with a defense splitting pass on 12 minutes to make it 1-0 before Yeremi Pino doubled Villarreal’s lead on 43 minutes to make it 2-0.
The hosts then pulled one goal back just before halftime as Carlos Ramos stoppage-time goal ensured they were plenty to play for going into the Seine half.
Chukwueze then made way for Dani Parejo after the hour mark as goals from Fernando Nino (73) and Raba (88) ensured the yellow Submarines cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win.
Chukwueze did impress with a game rating of 7.4, made 3 key passes, 2 big chances created, completed 86% of his passes, and also made 2 key interceptions in the game.
