Matchday Report: Osimhen unstoppable in Italy, Oshoala conquers all in Spain

  • On Sunday, EaglesTracker followed 60 matches which could potentially feature Nigerian players, from 37 different leagues around the world
  • Here are the top stories

Spain

Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala scored for the fifth consecutive match as she grabbed a hat-trick in Barcelona's 7-0 flogging of Real Betis at the Estadi Johan Cruyff on Sunday.

It was the 28-year-old's third hat-trick this year and it took her past Levante’s Alba Redondo (16) and Real Madrid’s Esther González (15) as the league's top goalscorer with 17 goals.

At the Estadio Jesús Navas in Sevilla, Oshoala's international teammate, Toni Payne also saw her day end in jubilation as Sevilla edged 1-0 past Villarreal.

Italy

Super Eagles forward, Victor Osimhen hit a new career high as he fired a brace to lift Napoli to an impressive 3-0 win at Spezia in the Italian Serie A.

The former Lille now has 16 league goals, the most he has managed since turning professional and better than the 14 he netted last term for Napoli.

At the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, Ola Aina laid on the assist for Torino's winner in their narrow 1-0 triumph over Isaac Success's Udinese.

Belgium

Raphael Onyedika excelled in midfield to help Club Brugge battle to a hard-fought 0-0 draw away to high-flying Antwerp.

Youngster, Yira Sor glanced home a cute header while Paul Onuachu's replacement, Tolu Arokodare scored on his debut to inspire KRC Gent to a 3-2 victory over bitter rivals KAA Gent.

22-year-old, Victor Boniface netted his fourth league goal of the season when he blasted home a cute finish in Union Saint Gilloise's comprehensive 4-0 triumph at home to Zulte Waregem, all in the Belgian First Division A. 

France

Terem Moffi made his debut for Nice and he gave a good account of himself as the visitors forced a 2-1 defeat down the throat of Marseille, one of Moffi's admirers during the most dramatic Ligue 1 transfer saga in January.
