How Africans Fared in La Liga this Weekend
A round up of African players’ performance in the La Liga.
Kenneth Josia Omeru of Nigeria is on eight starts in eight games for Leganes this campaign but entered into the referee’s book on Friday while sealing the back-line in the match against a surprisingly stunning Real Sociedad.
Countryman Chidozie Awaziem warmed the substitutes’ bench throughout during the game on the same day.
Ghana’s 20-year sensation Abdul Karim got the nod in midfield in Real Valladolid’s 3-0 savaging to Deportivo Alaves on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Nigeria’s Ramon Azeez formed part of Granada’s midfield in their loss to Valencia as Senegal’s Papa Kully Diop’s Eibar got walloped 4-0 by a rampaging Real Madrid.
Valverde, Ramos and Benzema were the architects for the erstwhile European champions.
The Black Stars’ Joseph Aidoo and Celta Vigo were rendered helpless as Barcelona made a light work of the now struggling club.
Zambo Anguissa and Toko Ektambi from Cameroon, passed gaffer Javo Calleja’s assessment for starters in his team while Nigeria’s Samuel Chukwueze joined the fray in the 46th minute but it was Mallorca who ended up winners with Ivory Coast’s Junior Wakallibile finding the net. Lumor Agbennyenu and Idris Mohammed, the other two Ghanaians in Mallorca’s books, all started in their respective roles.
At the Estadio Wanda, Thomas Teye Partey operated in his defensive midfield role in Atletico Madrid’s 3-1 trouncing of Espanyol.
