19 year-old Luka Sučić is in the form of his life! The young midfielder scored twice and assisted in Salzburg’s 6-0 thrashing of Klagenfurt in the Austrian Bundesliga. FotMob named Sučić “man of the match” and awarded him a phenomenal 9.3 match rating. Sučić has now scored five goals in his last six league matches – not bad for a central-midfielder! If I was in Dalić’s shoes, I would 100% bring Sučić to Qatar in November, especially if squad size is increased.
No doubt about it, Ivan Perišić is still world class. The 33 year-old assisted twice in Inter’s crucial 2-0 victory over Hellas Verona on Saturday. Perišić finished the match with a terrific 9.0 FotMob match rating, and was named “man of the match”. It still breaks my heart that Perišić was unavailable for Croatia’s bout vs. Spain in Euro 2020…
Josip Juranović is an animal down the flank! The 26 year-old fullback converted a penalty and assisted as Celtic thumped St. Johnstone 7-0 in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday. Juranović was given an 8.8 FotMob match rating, and was crucial to the side’s offensive success during the match. Jurki has been delightful this season!
Ante Budimir is on fire right now! The striker handed Osasuna a 1-0 victory in the dying seconds of their match on Sunday vs. Alavés. Budimir now has three goals in his last three La Liga matches, and is playing some of the best football of his life. Will he become a solidified starter for the Vatreni by November?
Mateo Kovačić was absolutely stellar in Chelsea’s 6-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday, earning an 8.4 FotMob match rating. Kovačić proved once again that he is the engine of this Chelsea squad, and should start against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Petar Musa was crucial for Boavista again on Saturday, assisting the side’s game-winning goal in the 12th minute of the match. The 24 year-old striker has caught the eyes of many European clubs this season, and provides Dalić another option up front.
Joško Gvardiol recorded a 7.6 FotMob match rating in Leipzig’s 3-0 victory over Hoffenheim on Sunday.
Lovro Majer played a solid 76 minutes as Rennes beat Reims 3-2 in Ligue 1.
