Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze will be gunning for his second LaLiga goal of the season and 10th overall when he files out with Villarreal who go on the road trip to the Estadio El Sadar to face basement side, Osasuna.
Chukwueze was an unused substitute midweek in the Copa del Rey away fixture against Leioa which Villarreal won 6-0 and the Nigerian being rested will be unleashed for LaLiga action today.
The 21-year old starred for 32 minutes last weekend as Villarreal played out a 1-1 draw at Real Betis in what was his 12th game of the season with his stats standing at one goal and two assists in 580 minutes of action.
Villarreal currently sit 4th on the LaLiga table with 22 points after 13 matches and the former gaffer Unai Emery will fancy his team’s chances against Osasuna who have drawn just one out of their last six games and sit at the bottom of the LaLiga table with 11 points having picked just a point in their last five matches.
Chukwueze has made six starts in his 12 appearances so far this season and if he gets on the scoresheet, it will be his 10th LaLiga goal across three seasons.
Today’s tie will be the 76th LaLiga appearance for the Nigerian winger who is into his third season in the Spanish topflight with Villarreal.
