Super Eagles forward Umar Sadiq increased his goal tally in the Spanish La Liga with the match winner as Almeria stunned Sevilla 2-1 on Saturday.
Despite the end result on the night, Sevilla did start as the brighter of the two sides at the Power Horse Stadium, with midfield star Oliver Torres deservedly edging them in front.
However, the hosts reacted smartly to that early setback before the break, as Largie Ramazani eventually poked them level just before the interval.
That set the tie on a knife edge after the restart with man of the moment Real Sociedad linked Umar Sadiq producing a deadly finish to clinch all three points for Almeria.
Sadiq looks increasingly likely to stay at Almeria in the coming days despite widespread transfer interest in the Nigerian international in recent weeks.
