Kayode’s goal means he is joint-third in the Europa League’s top scorers chart in the current campaign.

He is just two goals short of leading scoring Yusuf Yazici of Lille.

However, despite continuing his impressive performance in the competition on Thursday, he was overlooked for selection.

Sivasspor are third on six points in Group I with Villarreal on top with 10 points and Maccabi Tel Aviv second with seven points.
