The Nigerian striker’s impressive streak in front of goal continued after he scored in Genk’s 4-0 victory over St. Truiden
Paul Onuachu found the back of the net for the second consecutive league game as Genk thrashed St. Truiden 4-0 on Sunday afternoon.
The former Midtjylland star has now scored in his last four games for both club and country. Onuachu fired Genk to victory against Oud-Heverlee Leuven last weekend and was also on target in the Super Eagles Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers against the Benin Republic and Lesotho.
The 26-year-old is now just three strikes away from reaching the 30 goal mark in the Belgian top-flight this season following his latest effort.
Genk took the lead in the 21st minute through Theo Bongonda before Bryan Heynen doubled the advantage three minutes later.
Kristian Thorstvedt made it three in the 35th minute before Onuachu scored the fourth and his 27th of the season eight minutes after the break.
