EiE: Paul Onuachu scores again as Ndidi struggles

There seems to be no stopping the giant Super Eagles forward Paul Onuachu as he found the net once again, while Wilfred Ndidi had a rather odd poor weekend. 

Onuachu was back to what he knows best after firing blanks the last time out against Beerschot the last time. 

The 24-year-old netted a calm penalty in the first half to help his club Genk to a valuable 1-2 away win over Sporting Charleroi on Friday. 

That goal took his tally for Genk in the Jupiler this season to 24 goals in 28 matches, with 26 goal contributions having provided two assists in that time as well. He has now scored 7 of 7penalties this season. 

Onuachu started and played for 80 minutes before he was replaced by his compatriot, Cyriel Dessers

Moving to the Eredivisie, where Tyronne Ebuehi helped his team FC Twente to an away point after a 2-2 draw at Heracles. 

The fullback played from start to finish, he completed 100% of his take-ons, made 5 interceptions, and 5 recoveries. 

Oghenekaro Etebo played for 72 minutes as Galatasaray defeated Erzurum RB 2-0 in the Turkish first division. Henry Onyekuru was a late substitute in that game as he came on on 82 minutes. 

Frank Onyeka was at the heart of it all as Midtyjlland narrowly defeated Brondby IF 1-0. The defensive midfielder played from start to finish. 

Olayinka Peter played for 90 minutes as Slavia Prague went, saw, and conquered Slovacko 3-2 to consolidate on their grip on the Czech league. 

Francis Uzoho kept a clean sheet on Sunday following a 2-0 win for Apoel Nicosa over Achnas in Cyprus. 

Moving back to the top five leagues, our first stop will be in the LaLiga where Samuel Chukwueze and Villarreal  failed at home. 

The Yellow Submarines lost 0-2 at home to Atletico Madrid despite an impressive showing from Chukwueze, who was on from start to finish. 

The talented wide forward create the most chances (4), key passes (4), and was also the most fouled player in the game. 

Moses Simon was on for 72 minutes but failed to really impact the match as Nantes played out a 1-1 draw at Nimes on Sunday. 

Samuel Kalu was on target but it was not enough to save Bordeaux following a 1-2 defeat to Metz at home. 

The goal was Kalu’s fourth of the season for Bordeaux in the Ligue 1 this season. 

In England,  it was a rather odd game for Wilfried Ndidi as Arsenal came from behind to defeat Leicester City 1-3 at the King Power. 

Ndidi conceded a sloppy penalty which was put away by Alexander Lacazette  to put the Gunners 1-2 up at the break before Nicolas Pepe sealed the win with a third goal in the second half. 

However, he won the most tackles (4), duels (11), and made 7 recoveries. His compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho did not fare much better in this defeat. Iheanacho blazed high over in the dying embers of the match a chance to make the score slightly more respectable

Ola Aina helped Fulham to a clean sheet after a 0-0 draw and valuable point at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace on Sunday. He was on the pitch for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, former AS Roma star, Sadiq Umar seems to be pushing for a place in Super Eagles team this March after another match winning display for UD Almeria in the Spanish second division.

Sadiq scored his 13th of the season as Almeria thrashed Lugo 4-1 on Saturday. He scored three first and assisted the third goal in that match.
