Before this match, the Nigerian international’s last goal came for Sociedad in their 1-1 draw against Osasuna on December 2, 2023. Since then, he had endured a goalless streak spanning 11 La Liga games, five Copa Del Rey matches, and two UEFA Champions League fixtures.

The 27-year-old former AS Roma striker was substituted after 63 minutes, paving the way for André Silva, whose late goal secured the win for Sociedad.
