Simy Nwankwo gets his first win of the season as his team won convincingly at home.

Here is how Nigerian players in Europe fared on Saturday:


Semi Ajayi played the whole math for West Brom as they fell to a late defeat away from home. Ajayi and his teammates need to improve if they harbor hopes of avoiding relegation this season.

Alex Iwobi played further upfield in yesterday’s league match, starting on the right of a 3-man attack.

The Nigerian winger was decent for his side completing 4 take-ons as they got an important win at home against Chelsea to move closer to European spots

Rating – 6/10

Everton 1 – 0 Chelsea


Taiwo Awoniyi was in action for Union Berlin as they battled out a fierce draw against top table Bayern Munich.

Although he wasn’t on the scoresheet, such result would inspire his team’s confidence as they remain outsiders for European spots.

Rating – 5/10

Union Berlin 1 – 1 Bayern Munich


Simy Nwankwo and his teammates got their first win in the league this season and it wasn’t enough to take them off bottom-place.

Simy was impressive for his team, putting in the work for his team and finishing the match with 4 completed dribbles and 4 aerial duels won.

Rating – 7/10

Crotone 4 – 1 Spezia
