Samuel Chukwueze instrumental in Villarreal's 2-1 win against GetafePublished: April 17, 2022
Villarreal defeated Getafe 2-1 in a La Liga match held at Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Saturday night with Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze playing an important part in that win.
Gerard Moreno and Manuel Trigueros scored for the Yellow Submarine in the 7th and 16th minute in the first half while Turkish striker Enes Unal halved the deficit for the home team in the 65th minute- his 15th strike of the season so far in the Spanish top-flight.
The game was Chukwueze's 21st La Liga appearance of the current campaign. He was in action for 68 minutes before he was replaced by Yeremi Pino.
Dutch forward of Nigerian descent Arnaut Danjuma came off the substitutes bench seven minutes earlier in place of Paco Alcacer.
Chukwueze had a great game and came close to scoring in the first half. The ball came off his shin in the 35th minute as he called and received it via a tantalising cross from a teammate.
After 32 League games, Unai Emery's team are in 7th place with 49 points.
