The former LOSC Lille striker once again displayed his talent by scoring two goals to lead his club to their 23rd league win.
The Super Eagles talisman opened the floodgate of goals for Luciano Spalletti’s team by rising to meet a corner from Piotr Zielinski and converting with a powerful header. In the 51st minute, he also sent a well-placed header past Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.
