Andrej Kramarić finally got back on the scoresheet for Hoffenheim when he equalized against Wolfsburg in 1st half injury time for his first Bundesliga goal of the season. Krama found a loose ball in the box following a corner and cooly headed it home under the crossbar. Hoffenheim would beat Wolfsburg 3-1. This goal was a long time coming as Kramarić has been cold to start the season; both for Hoffenheim and Croatia.
Mateo Kovačić played the full 90 minutes for Chelsea in a 1-0 loss to Manchester City. City put on the press from the opening whistle and suffocated the Chelsea midfield. Kovačić received a 7/10 as he was “Chelsea’s best player. Some great long passes to try and find the forwards. Almost scored in second half.”
19-year old wunderkind Luka Sučić had two assists and was voted “Man of the Match” in Red Bull Salzburg’s 2-0 win over Wolfsberger Saturday. The first came off a corner kick in the first half and the second came after the restart when Sučić sent a perfectly laced Luka Modrić “outside the boot” pass across the field to an open Noah Okafor for the goal. Sučić is exceeding all expectations thus far in his first full season in the Austrian Bundesliga. RB Salzburg hosts goalie Ivo Grbić and Lille Wednesday in Champions League.
