Nigerian striker Blessing Eleke reacts after scoring 17th goals of the season for FC Luzern who thumped Stephen Odey’s FC Zurich 3-0 in a Swiss Super League clash.

With both sides chasing a Europa League qualification spot on the penultimate game of the league, the hosts raced into an eighth-minute lead when Ruben Vargas reacted quickest to tuck home a Tsiy-William Ndenge pass for 1-0.

The 23-year-old former Flying Sports Academy doubled his side’s lead in the 30th minutes before Vargas sealed the win completing his brace nine minutes before the hour mark to seal the three point.

Eleke has now found back of the net 17 times in 38 games this season for FC Luzern with the Nigerian reserving accolades for his teammates.

The win takes Luzern to the third position on the log with 46 points ahead of their final league match away to champions Young Boys.
