Onuachu gets 26th league goal
It looks like Paul Onuachu is on a streak that could be the best in his football career as the 2.01m tall forward took his tally for the season to 26 in Belgium First Division A. Onuachu struck the third goal-which proved to be the winner in Genk’s 3-2 away victory over OH Leuven on Monday. He scored the goal in the 83r minute and his teammates will thank him because OH Leuven pulled a goal back in the second minute of added-on time, which made Onuachu’s strike the winning goal. Genk are third on the league standings with 53 points from 32 games. Onuachu has scored 30 goals in 35 matches in all competitions-both for club and country.

Nwankwo provided two quality finishes in the box on 25 minutes and three minutes into the second half. Despite Crotone’s position as the bottom-placed side in Italy’s top flight, Nwankwo has continued to score with surprising regularity. He has scored braces against Lazio, Torino, and Benevento, but Crotone have lost twice when he has conjured up these braces. Crotone have 15 points from 29 matches, nine points from safety, with nine matches left in the season.
