The Nigerian was on parade from start to finish but failed to score as the Frogs came from a goal down to silence the Yellow Submarine
Samuel Chukwueze failed to score as Villarreal suffered a 2-1 defeat to Levante in Fridayâ€™s La Liga outing.
Chukwueze began the season with a bang - getting a goal as the Yellow Submarine wereÂ forced to a 4-4 draw against Granada.
Roger Martiâ€™s second-half brace powered the Frogs past the visitors who got their lone striker through Gerard Moreno.
Villarreal started the game well as Javier Callejaâ€™s men took a third-minute lead with Moreno finishing off Karl Toko Ekambiâ€™s cross.
Despite their dominance, the Estadio de la Ceramica giants throughÂ away several scoring opportunities with Ekambi the main culprit.
In the second half, Levante clawed their way back into the game to win thanks to Martiâ€™s penalty goals. In the 68th minute, the Spaniard fired past Andres Fernandez after Ekambi fouled Enis Bardhi on the edge of his goal area.
Five minutes later, Marti sealed his brace after he was upended by goalkeeper Marti.
The game at Ciutat de Valencia was Chukwuezeâ€™s 28th Spanish top-flight outing. He is expected to lead Villarealâ€™s frontline when they host Real Madrid in their next fixture.
