Super Eagles Center Half Chidozie Awaziem was on parade for Leganes at Camp Nou as CD Leganes took on Barcelona for a place in the semi-final of the Copa Del Rey on Thursday.

It was a baptism of fire for Awaziem, as the Nigerian experienced a torrid time against Barcelona’s world class attackers, who made the visitors look out of sorts.


Reigning world player of the year Lionel Messi led the assault on the night as Barcelona scored five times to march into the last eight of the Championship.


A brace from Messi and a goal each from Antoine Griezmann, Clement Lenglet and Arthur Melo handed Barcelona the resounding victory, with Awaziem and his teammates left shattered.


Awaziem, however was on parade for 90 minutes and was booked in the 73rd minute.


Meanwhile his compatriot Kenneth Omeruo watched from the bench for the whole of the game.


Awaziem and his Leganes teammates will now turn their attention to the League and the battle to survive relegation from La liga when they take on Real Sociedad at the  Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Sunday.
