Samuel Chukwue continued to score impressively against Barcelona at Villarreal’s hometown of Estadio de la Ceramica, but not enough because he lost 3-1 in the LaLiga match on Saturday.
Chukwueze was the first league goal since April and also recorded a 2-1 defeat at home with Barcelona.
The Super Eagles star, who played in the 65th minute, scored with 14 minutes remaining and canceled the opening match against Frenkie de Jong’s Barca.

However, with two second half goals, Memphis Depay (88′) and Philippe Coutinho (94’s penalty), Barcelona won their first away victory of the league this season.
And being on the scoresheet on Saturday means that Chukwueze scored more Liga goals against Barcelona at La Ceramica than any other Villarreal player (3 goals in 4 games).
On the other hand, losing to Barca prevented Villarreal from winning the last three games of all tournaments (2 losses and 1 draw).
Xavi’s Barca has been undefeated in the last six games and has recorded three wins and three draws.
