Europa League: Chukwueze zooms into semi-final with Villarreal

Samuel Chukwueze is through to the semi-final stage of the Europa League with his Spanish club, Villarreal.

Chukwueze palyed for 90 minutes and even bagged and assist as Villarreal won Thursdday second leg tie against Dinamo Zagreb 2-1.

Having won the first leg 1-0, the Yellow Submarines progressed with a 3-1 aggregate score line.

Villarreal are hungry for trophies and had been tipped by many at the beginning of the season to prioritise the Europa League over La Liga.

Now they’re in the business end of the season and in the moments that matter, something Unai Emery, a specialist in this competition having won it three times, knows all about.

His men certainly got off to a good start.

Alcacer put the hosts into the lead in the 36th minute, before Moreno doubled their advantage in the 43rd. Dinamo pulled one back in the 74th, through Mislav Orsic, but it meant nothing in the end.

While Chukwueze progressed with Villarreal it was not the same for his compatriot Peter Olayinka who crashed out woefully with Slavia Prague.

Arsenal thumped Slavia 4-0 to progress on a 4-1 aggregate scoreline.
