Nigeria international, Samuel Chukwueze is set to make his 50th overall Laliga appearances for Villarreal who will be up against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Sunday, Completesports.com reports.
Since making his Laliga debut for the Yellow Submarine in a 1-1 draw with Levante on 4 November, 2018, Chukwueze has racked up 49 appearances, scored just eight goals and rendered five assists.
The 20-year-old winger has also recorded 17 wins from his 49 Spanish top-flight outings but he couldn’t secure victory in two La Liga matches against this weekend’s opponent, Atletico Madrid.
Chukwueze’s first league appearance against Atletico almost one year ago, precisely on 24 February, 2019 ended in a 2-0 loss to Atletico while this season’s reverse fixture was a goalless draw.
Meanwhile, the pacy and skilful Super Eagles forward was in action for 14 minutes after replacing Paco Alcacer in Villarreal’s 2-1 win over Levante in last Saturday’s La Liga tie.
So far in the 2019/20 season, the 20-year-old has netted three times and rendered as many assists after making 23 Spanish top-flight appearances for the Yellow Submarine.
