LaLiga: Chukwueze scores in Villarreal eight-goal thriller vs Granada

Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze was on target for Villarreal in an eight-goal thriller against Granada in the LaLiga seaon opener on Saturday.

Chukwueze scored Villarreal's fourth goal through a solo effort in the 73rd minute in a 4-4 draw with Granada.

Santi Cazorla converted a 35th minute penalty to put Villarreal ahead but Granada equalised in the same fashion when Fede Vico scored from the spot to draw level just before half time.

Eight minutes after the break, Villarreal went ahead again through Moi Gomez, but yet again, Granada equalised through Darwin Machis just after the hour mark.

Villarreal then went two goals ahead through Gerard Moreno and Chukwueze, but with 15 minutes left to play, Roberto Soldado reduced the deficit before Antonio Puertas ensured the tie ended in a 4-4 draw nine minutes from time.
