Awoniyi nets goal no. 9 in Mouscron’s big win

Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi was on target in Royal Excel Mouscron’s 3-0 away win against Lierse in the Belgian First Division A Europa League playoffs at the Herman Vanderpoortenstadion on Saturday. 

Awoniyi, who has been a worthy hitman for REM this season, added to his tally with a peach goal in the second half of the contest.

Teddy Mézague scored the game opener for the visitors in the 28th minute before Selim Amallah doubled their lead in the 52nd minute.

Amallah turned provider seven minutes later as teed off Awoniyi to net Mouscron’s third on 59 minutes.

20-year-old Awoniyi has now scored nine goals and provided six assists in 30 appearances in all competitions for Mouscron this season.
