Super Eagles star – Samuel Chukwueze has recorded yet another assist to his name as Villarreal secured a comfortable victory over Hajduk Split during their Europa Conference League clash on Thursday night.

Samuel Chukwueze produced an impressive performance in Villarreal’s UECL fourth qualifying round 1st leg victory over Chidozie Awaziem side – Hajduk Split.

The Nigeria’s wing wizard, Samuel Chukwueze displayed his dribbling skills and played a huge part in the Yellow Submarines’ 4-2 home win against Hajduk Split.

The Super Eagles winger contributed in setting up the third goal for the yellow submarine and featured for 90 minutes in the six-goal thriller at the Estadio Ciudad de Valencia.

The Spanish side went into half time break with a three-goal lead. Hajduk Split scored the opener, but the Yellows fought back through a brace from Jose Morales, a goal from Gerard Moreno and an own goal.

The visitors had a fast start to the game as Stipe Biuk quickly gave them the lead two minutes into the encounter. José Luis Morales then fired the Spaniards back into the game 14 minutes on, before Marko Livaja’s own goal saw Villarreal take the lead back.

Morales grabbed his second goal of the game in 36th minute thanks to Samuel Chukwueze who provided the assist before Gerard Moreno made it 4-1 on the stroke of half time.

Samuel Chukwueze is yet to grab a goal this season, but his current form is quite commendable after grabbing his second assist in two games this season.

Last season, the Nigerian international managed to produce just two assists in all competitions for Villarreal.

While Samuel Chukwueze had an impressive game last night, Chidozie Awaziem, who played DM role for Hajduk Split failed to live up to expectation and had a yellow card in the 73rd minute of game.
