Olanrewaju Kayode scored again against Roma in the UEFA Europa League with compatriot Wilfred Ndidi also on target for Belgian club Genk.

Nigeria striker Kayode found the back of the net after just two minutes when he stylishly connected a low cross from the right to get the ball past the goal line.

He was later booked in the seventh minute and then replaced late in the encounter.

Kayode’s Austria Wien eventually fell 4-2 in front of their home fans after the reverse fixture ended in a 2-2 draw with the Nigeria striker also on target in Italy.

Ndidi scored after 51 minutes to give Genk a glimmer of hope at 3-2 against hosts Athletic Club.

But in stoppage time the Nigeria defensive midfielder caused a penalty with a late tackle inside the box from which Athletic made it 5-3.

Emmanuel Emenike was a second half substitute as Fenerbache upset Manchester United 2-1 in Istanbul.

The win saw the Turkish giants leap frog United to second place on the table on seven points from four matches,  same as leaders Feyenoord.
