Can Sadiq Umar increase his goal tally at Getafe?

Super Eagles and Real Sociedad of Spain forward Umar Sadiq will be looking to be razor sharp upfront for his side ahead of Sunday’s visit to Getafe.

The Super Eagles hitman got off the bench and scored for Real Sociedad in a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Stadio Metropolitano last weekend.

Despite the premature halt of his goalscoring run in midweek, Umar and his teammates are surely high in confidence after getting all three points in their first UEFA Europa League match against Manchester United courtesy Brias Mendez’s 59th-minute spot kick.

Umar saw 45 minutes of action in that clash at Old Trafford before being replaced by Alexander Sorloth.

Nonetheless, the 25-year-old striker is in pole position to get the nod to lead the line from coach Imanol Alguacil.

Getafe have been extremely poor this season picking just one point from their opening five games. And their defensive problems were laid bare last week in a 5-1 demolition at Valencia.
