Marcelo Brozović seems to be the only guy that can score for Inter Milan lately. The Croatian CDM scored a cheeky ‘ninja kick flick’ in the 89th minute Saturday to beat Torino 1-0 and grab all three points for his club. SempreMilan were a bit harsh with their 6/10 rating for Brozović as he “Didn’t have the best of games but has begun pushing forward again into the penalty area and so he’s scored for the second consecutive game. Misplaced many simple passes but worked himself back into the game.” Brozović is in top form for Inter with two goals in two straight matches.
Nikola Vlašić had a solid game for Torino with a 6.7 rating from FOTMOB. He didn’t get on the scoresheet this weekend but did muscle some solid shots at the Inter goal in the 1-0 loss for Torino.
With Jan Oblak out with injury, Ivo Grbić got a rare start for Atletico Madrid in a 4-1 victory over Celta Vigo. He was given a 6.8 rating (FOTMOB) for making three saves but giving up a short-side goal he should have saved. Manager Diego Simeone said this of Grbić after the match, “We understood that he was not in his best shape. Great opportunity, very well taken advantage of by Grbić, who is well integrated into the group and works with great enthusiasm. When you work, you get paid.”
Andrej Kramarić missed a penalty shot but scored later in the match as Hoffenheim beat Mainz 4-1 on Saturday. Krama received a 7.7 rating (FOTMOB) for his goal performance but he will know at the end of the day he should have had a brace. With the win, Hoffenheim are in the thick of the Bundesliga title race; trailing leaders Union Berlin by only two points.
