Ighalo had failed to find the net in his last two matches, however, he rediscovered his scoring form to lead Carlos Inarejos’ men past their relegation-threatened opponents.
And after the final whistle, Odion Ighalo and his teammates were in joyous mood inside the plane signing Davido’s song in loud voices.
