Emenike scores for Olympiakos in UEFA Champions League


Former Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike started his Olympiakos career with a debut goal in a Uefa champions league match away to Partizan Belgrade on Tuesday night.

The Greek side were leading 2-1 and under severe pressure as host Belgrade pushed for an equalizer. Then came Emmanuel Emenike as a late substitute in the 89th minute with what looked like a time wasting move.

But the former Fenerbache forward had other ideas as he netted the third with a  left footed shot from the centre of the box, assisted by Diogo Figueiras in the 91st minute to hand Olympiakos a healthy 2 goals advantage ahead of the return leg in their home turf.

The second leg will be played next week Wednesday with Olympiakos and Emenike hoping to pick a playoff ticket that will secure qualification into the UEFA Champions League group stages.
