LaLiga: Chukwueze Bags Assist In Villareal Win Vs Mallorca; Etebo Subbed On In Getafe’s Home Draw
Chukwueze made the starting eleven and justified his coach’s decision as he set up Colombian striker Carlos Bacca for the goal on 16 minutes.
After receiving the ball Chukwueze skipped past his marker on the right side of Villareal’s attack, went on a mazy run before sending in a low cross which Bacca tapped into an empty net.
The game was Chukwueze’s 28th for Villareal so far in the current campaign.
Villareal have now won back-to-back games since the resumption of LaLiga after it was suspended because of coronavirus.
They now move up to seventh on 44 points just three points from fourth which is a Champions League spot.
And in another LaLiga game on Tuesday, Oghenekaro Etebo was in action for Getafe who were held to a 0-0 home draw by 10-man Espanyol.
Etebo who was named among the substitutes, was introduced for Cameroonian defender Allan Nyom on 46 minutes for his eight appearance since his loan move from Stoke City.
Espanyol were reduced to 10 men as early as the 16th minute after Bernardo was sent off for hitting a Getafe player in the face.
The draw means Getafe miss the chance to temporarily go fourth in the league table and are now fifth on 47 points.
