Published on: 20 January 2023

Samuel Chukwueze continued his good form, scoring a goal as Villarreal blew a two-goal lead against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.

Real Madrid came from two goals down to beat Villarreal 3-2 against an inspired Samuel Chukwueze at the Estadio de la Cerámica

Villarreal started on the front foot and raced in front with two first-half goals through Etienne Capoue and Chukwueze.

However, Vinicius  Junior, Eder Militao and Daniel Ceballos second half goals completed a dramatic comeback for the Merengues who won 3-2.

Samuel Chukwueze had received  pass from Gerald Moreno and found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper and scored with aplomb into the top right corner to make it 2 nil.

He has now been involved in eight goals in seven matches for the Yellow Submarines this season.
