Josip Brekalo couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2022!
In his first match of the new year, Brekalo scored twice as Torino crushed Fiorentina 4-0 on Monday. Brekalo was also named ‘man of the match’ with a 8.6 SofaScore match rating. The 23 year-old now has five goals this season, and is averaging a solid 7.14 match rating in Serie A.
After an average 2020-21 season at Wolfsburg, Brekalo is finally finding his groove again in Italy. The young attacker has been a constant threat for Torino down the left flank this season. It will be interesting to see what else Brekalo can do under Ivan Jurić’s management this season.
