Racing Genk's Onuachu Continues Excellent Form By Scoring Brace Vs Zulte-WaregemPublished: January 27, 2021
Racing Genk attacker Paul Onuachu continued his excellent form in the Belgian First Division A by scoring a brace in his team's 3-2 win over Zulte-Waregem at the Luminus Arena on Wednesday evening.
In doing so, the Nigeria international boosted his average to 0.96 goals per game this season after 23 appearances.
Onuachu broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time, slotting into an empty net after the ball was laid on a plate for him by Daniel Munoz, then doubled the advantage when he headed home a corner kick in the 52nd minute.
The former FC Midtjylland star has now scored 22 goals this term and needs one more goal to equal his personal best return for goals in a single season set back in the 2016-17 campaign with the Danish champions.
Onuachu's goals have not gone unnoticed by clubs in the big five European Leagues as he has been linked with possible moves to the French Ligue 1 and English Premier League in the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old is one goal shy of Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski as the most prolific player in the whole of Europe.
Genk's 12th league win of the season takes them nine points behind table-toppers Club Brugge who have a game in hand.
