A goal and (nearly) an assist
The German striker, who was clinical to finish from Gelson Martins’ pass, also turned provider for Youssouf Fofana (2-0, 26′), when he could even had an assist himself. He then found Ismail Jakobs with a brilliant ball in the 78th minute, as the German helped make it 4-1 by playing in Myron Boadu, who was perfectly placed. His fine ball to pick out his young countryan was thus key in sealing the result. Before that, his pressure on Timothée Kolodziejczak resulted in a own goal against the Saint-Etienne defender.
55 goal involvements for Yedderland
