Patson Daka braces Salzburg to eighth straight league title
Zambia national team striker Patson Daka scored a brace to guide Redbull Salzburg to a 2-0 win over Rapid Wien which sealed their eighth straight league title.
Daka opened the scores in the 33rd minute after a pass from Mergîm Berisha found him space but he was fortunate as his effort took a huge deflection off Wien defender.
Daka grabbed his brace in the 56th minute after pouncing on a loose ball inside the box and picking his spot, 2-0.
Daka could have completed his hat-trick in the last few minutes but somehow his effort was kept out nevertheless that did not matter because, after the final whistle, Salzburg were Champions, winning their eighth straight league title with two games to spare.
Midfielder Enock Mwepu put in a brilliant shift before being withdrawn in the 77th minute.
Daka leads the top goalscorers chart with 26 league goals in 25 games and 33 strikes in all competitions.
