Former Nigeria U-23 star Umar Sadiq will spearhead Almeria attack tonight at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos where they host Castellon in a Spanish second (Segunda) division match week 23 tie as they march towards making a return to the LaLiga Santander.
Sadiq has been instrumental to Almeria’s third place position on the log with 42 points,three behind the leading duo of Espanyol and Mallorca with a game at hand.
The Nigerian who switched Serbian side Partizan Belgrade for the Spanish second division last October has scored 10 goals in 19 appearances so far this term including the hat-trick in the 3-1 defeat of Ponferradina early this year.
He is making his 16th start in the 20 league games he has so far featured in and will be looking to score for the third game running this month,just like he did last month.
Sadiq’s impressive showing has already alerted top LaLiga sides including Sevilla who have made an enquiry about the gangling forward who scored four times for Nigeria at the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro,Brazil
