Villarreal eased their relegation woes in the La Liga Santander with a 3-1 win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday with Samuel Chukwueze in action.
The former Golden Eaglets starlet played a key role in the home win which saw Karl Toko Ekambi grab a brace. Gerard Moreno put the game beyond Vallecano with the third goal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.
Chukwueze was replaced in the 84th minute by Pablo Fornals
Villarreal’s unbeaten run of two games have lifted the side to 17th in the table with 29 points from 28 games.
Up next for the Yellow Submarines is a trip to Celta Vigo on 30th March.
