Nigerian player Victor Moses played a part as Inter could only manage a 1-1 draw away at Napoli in the second leg semifinal game of the Coppa Italia. The result wasn’t enough for Inter to advance to the final as they lost the first 1-0.

Meanwhile, in Spain, Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze came off the bench to help Villarreal to a crucial away win at Celta Vigo. Chukwueze was on from the start before he was brought on in the 58th minute to provide the spark for Villarreal.

He did just that, stretching the tired Celta Vigo backline with his dribbling and runs from the right. On several occasions, he ran at the defence, found space to shoot but could not hit the target.

The 21-year-old forward had the chance to score the winner for Villarreal but his shot was saved before Manu Trigueros netted to hand all the three points to the Yellow Submarines.

The central defence partnership with Nigeria internationals Chidozie Awaziem and Kenneth Omeruo could not save Leganes who lost 2-1 at home to Valladolid.

while, Nigerian midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu was a second-half substitute for Instanbul Basaksehir who beat Alanyaspor 2-0. Okechukwu was introduced in the 82nd minute of the game to help his side close out the game.
