Red-hot Sadiq Umar sends UD Almeria top of La Liga Smartbank

His goal and assist propelled UD Almeria to a 3-1 win over CF Fuenlabrada.


Super Eagles and UD Almeria’s star, Umar Sadiq, put in a commendable shift once again in the La Liga Smartbank for UD Almeria on Friday night.

His goal and assist propelled the Red and Whites to a 3-1 win over CF Fuenlabrada as they go top of the league table.

The 2016 Olympics bronze medalist was unplayable from start to finish.


He played a key role in the opening goal of the game as he shrugged off his marker to pick out Arnau Puigmal who shot past the goalkeeper.

In the second half, Puigmal turned provider for the 25-year-old to restore Almeria’s lead on 65 minutes.

Sadiq had the most dribbles (2), created the most chances (4), and made the most key passes (3).

The lanky forward has been involved in 20 goals (13 goals and 7 assists) in 24 matches for Almeria this season.

Since returning from AFCON 2021, he has now scored five (5) goals in his last four (4) matches for the club.
