The Super Eagles trio of Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Paul Onuachu were in superb scoring form again for their clubs.
It was business as usual for them in their respective clubs as monitored by Eagles in Europe, EiE.
Osimhen’s recent form for Napoli continued on Saturday after he scored a wonderful brace and assisted another goal in a 4-1 against Spezia in the Serie A.
The goals took his tally to 10 in just 13 starts for Napoli as he begins to repay the club for their huge investment on him.

He has also now been involved in six goals (5 goals and 1 assist) in his last four matches for Napoli in the Serie A.
For Simy Nwankwo, not only was he caged but humiliated with his team as Roma thrashed them 5-0.

The giant striker is Nigeria’s current top scorer with 19 goals for Crotone.
Despite a weekend to forget for Leicester City in the English Premier League, Senior man Iheanacho made it a respectable score line for the Foxes when they hosted Newcastle United on Friday.
Iheanacho scored a brilliant goal in their 2-4 defeat at the King Power, his sixth goal in his last six matches for the club in all competitions.
The goal was also his 11th in the PL, a tally he achieved in just 14 starts.
10 – Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 10 Premier League goals since the start of March, the most of any player. The only player to score more goals over this period in Europe's top five leagues is fellow Nigerian Simy (12 in Serie A). Super.
