EUROPA: Olayinka In Action As Arsenal Humiliate Slavia Prague, Set Up Semi-final Clash Vs Chukwueze’s Villarreal 

Peter Olayinka was in action for Slavia Prague but could not prevent his side from a humiliating 4-0 defeat at home to Arsenal, in the Europa League quarter-finals second-leg on Thursday, Completesports.com reports.

Olayinka and his Slavia Prague teammates held Arsenal to a shock 1-1 draw at the Emirates in the first-leg last Thursday.

But a brace from skipper on the night Alexandre Lacazette and a goal each from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe secured a 5-1 aggregate win for the Gunners.

They will now face Samuel Chukwueze’s Villarreal who knocked out Dinamo Zagreb.

The Yellow Submarines beat Dinamo 2-1 in the reverse fixture to advance 3-1 on aggregate.

Also, the semi-final clash against Villarreal will see Spanish coach Unai Emery come face to face against former club Arsenal.

    A big thank you to Arsenal for teaching racist Slavia Prague a soccer lesson

  • I am rooting for villarreal now. A true Nigerian must win europa cup.

  • I have always wanted to see chukwueze go up against an English team. Now we will have the chance to see him play against one of the top English clubs. Not only that, but he will be playing against bukayo saka a player with similar skills albeit refined finishing. It will be explosive. Lets see who comes out on top.

      There’s no doubt Bukayo Saka will come up on Top here, the lack of end products from Chukwueze is the difference between these 2 youngsters and it’s evident. I really hope soon that Chukwueze can get a coach one day who will recognise this weakness in him and work hard on him to improve his overall output and make him more clinical in front of goal.

    Chukwueze is such a joy to watch, but his end product begs a lot to desire. It’s quite unfathomable that Chukwueze in this match could not convert at least 1 out of the numerous chances that comes his way apart from the assist. Every time I watch Chukwueze he always reminds me of the great Emmanuel Amunike. Very direct and daring, but he needs to do more with his end product which is always a difference between a good player and a great player.

      No be today we start to talk about this end product wahala. Chukwueze by now should be rubbing shoulders with Mo Salah, Leroy Sane, Mahrez, etc. The difference between him and these players is end product – goals and assists stats are just not good enough, for someone of his skill level.
      And he is way too predictable. Every defender knows his game. He needs to bring new weapons to the table. And the biggest change he needs to make is TO LEARN HOW TO USE HIS RIGHT FOOT. If he accomplishes that, he becomes less predictable, and more dangerous.

    All Chukwueze haters you should stop supporting Super Eagles because you are enemies of progress. When Joshua and Caleb went to survey the land, they brought back good news. When haters are surveying Chukwueze’s performance they are bringing back bad news.
    I never knew Mahrez, Saka and Salah have ass-lickers among Super Eagles fans. Wind don blow so we don see your yansh. To add insult on injury, as the wind blow your yansh open, you come perfume the air with mess wey smell like someone wey eat beans and bread.
    No mind them Chukwueze. You better pass 100 Arjen Robbens. Only fake fans fan the flame of farce.
    I don talk my own.

    The name says Doctor Koyemi Oderinde. But the writing style belongs to another. Hmmmm. I laugh in Klingon.
    Could this garbage really have come from the doctor? I doubt it very much.
    So to encourage a player to be better makes us haters, abi?
    It’s called constructive criticism.
    If Chukwueze listens to our advice, and becomes bigger and better than Messi tomorrow, no be all of us go enjoy am?
    Your pathetic reference to bread and beans, is that what you had for breakfast today? You chop finish, nearly kill yourself and your family with your own farts inside your residence?
    If he is really better than 100 Robbens, that would have been so nice. He has skills similar to Robben, but the end product is where there is a big discrepancy. All honest hearted fans know this to be true. Our request is that he should keep working to improve his end product.
