He’s not gonna put that behind him. Samuel Chukwueze, who is in great form at the moment, threw away something that he would have otherwise turned into a 3 o’clock in the night with his eyes closed.
Samuel Chukwueze was in great form. He is currently one of Villarreal’s best players, with 4 goals and 3 assists from his last 6 La Liga games.
He played his highlight and clearly the best game of the season, maybe of his career, on Sunday at the Santiago Bernabéu. He contributed two goals to the win over Real Madrid, firstly by shuffling Nacho and scoring, then hitting the post with an exhibition shot in the 81st minute to make it 3-2.
The 23-year-old Nigerian winger was thus reportedly the subject of interest from Real Madrid themselves immediately after the game, and with Chukwuese’s contract expiring in a year, he might not be that expensive either.
But Chukwueze’s transfer value, in exaggeration, was knocked down a bit in the very next game against Valladolid. A side drowning in the fight for salvation went ahead in the second minute at the Estadio de la Cerámica, Chukwueze scored again, only to have his disallowed by VAR for offside.
The visitors scored another goal to secure a two-goal lead. Chukwueze could have reduced the score to 1:2 and brought Villarreal back into the game, but he missed with a penalty.
Morales, in a 3-on-2 situation, found a free Chukwueze in the whitewash, who made a tackle on the goalkeeper, made a bit of a wobble, but didn’t get to the ball, which was already in the small whitewash a meter from the line.
In his mind he was probably already preparing how to celebrate the goal, but prematurely. The ball literally rolled into the net, but Chukwueze’s weak right foot didn’t hit the ball as he wanted and he directed his attempt into the side netting.
Villarreal actually reduced the score to 1:2 in the 74th minute thanks to Capoue, but that’s all the Groguets could do and they lost a very important point in their fight for the European Cup.
