Super Eagles strikers contribute one goal and two assists as Genk qualify for Champions LeaguePublished: May 20, 2021
Racing Genk will be featuring in the third qualifying round of next season's Champions League following their 4-0 thrashing of Royal Antwerp at the Luminus Arena on Thursday evening - a result that keeps them second in the Belgian First Division A table heading into the final round.
Super Eagles strikers Paul Onuachu and Cyriel Dessers played a key role in the win by being involved in three of the four goals scored by the Limburg club.
Onuachu assisted Kristian Thorstvedt score two of his three goals; he set up the Norwegian three minutes after the restart, then provided his second assist of the game in the 64th minute.
With sixteen minutes left on the clock, Dessers came off the bench to replace his international teammate, a move that meant Onuachu's scoring streak in the division ended at seven games.
Dessers made an immediate impact, scoring barely a minute after his introduction - his sixth goal of the season.
Racing Genk will face back-to-back champions Club Brugge in their final fixture of the 2020-2021 season on Sunday, May 23.
