Henry Onyekuru scored his first Olympiacos and helped the Greek side book a group stage ticket in the UEFA Europa League following the 5-2 aggregate win over Slovan Bratislava on Thursday.

Onyekuru started his first game for Olympiacos since his €4.50 million move from AS Monaco this summer.
The winger scored in the second half to restore his side’s lead after another Nigerian Ezekiel Henty levelled for the hosts.
Olympiacos had drawn first blood in the match, Youssef El Arabi with a 33rd minute goal. But it didn’t last long as Henty hit back to force the sides leveled heading into the break.
After the restart, Onyekuru was teed up by international Mathieu Valbuena – the Frenchman’s second assist of the night.
However, yet again Bratislava would respond and 23 year-old English forward Andre Green leveled up just eight minutes later.
There would be no more goals, but Olympiacos had done enough to go through 5-2 on aggregate.
While Henty saw 79 minutes in the encounter his Nigerian teammate Rabiu brahim was an unused substitute.
