Chukwueze scores in Villarreal-Real Madrid five-goal Thriller

Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze endured a frustrating night as his Villarreal bowed out of Copa Del Rey following 2-3 defeat to Real Madrid.

Villarreal lost from a winning position in the last 16 of the 2022/23 Copa del Rey clash at the Estadio de la Cerámica.

The hosts were cruising after going two goals up in the first 45 minutes, but Real Madrid scored three after the restart to move into the quarter-final.

Quique Setien’s side took the lead before the third minute after Étienne Capoue received the ball inside the box and unleashed a powerful shot that beat Thibaut Courtois.

They continue to dominate the early stages of the game, with Chukwueze toying with Antonio Rudiger on the left side.

Villarreal had the ball in the net for the second time shortly before half time break after a fast counter attack.

Samuel Chukwueze and Capoue linked up again, before teeing Álex Baena whose shot, was blocked by a Madrid defender.

The ball broke kindly for Chukwueze who masterfully finished it off and sent the La Cerámica crowd into wild jubilation.

In the second half, Villarreal’s luck changed as Albiol and Foyth; their defensive pillars, had to leave the pitch due to injury.

Vinicius Junior then pulled one back for Real Madrid in the 60th minute to start the come back.

The hosts conceded another goal few minutes later as Eder Militao made it 2-2, he headed home a deflected ball in the six-yard box.

With five minutes to go, Villarreal broke down totally as Dani Ceballos completed the comeback with a fine shot from the edge of the box.
