Patson Daka nets hat-trick, Mwepu scores, and assists as Salzburg hit six

Zambian striker Patson Daka scored his third hat-trick of the season while Enock Mwepu chipped in with a goal and an assist as Redbull Salzburg thrashed TSV Hartberg 6-0 in an Austrian Bundesliga league match this afternoon.

Salzburg came into the match looking to extend their lead at the summit while Patson Daka was looking to reduce the gap between him and Israeli striker Shon Zalman Weissman on the top goalscorers chart.

Salzburg wasted no time to open the scoreline as Patson Daka outpaced two defenders before slotting home from close range just after four minutes. Enock Mwepu doubled the lead three minutes later as he took on five defenders before beating Rene Swete at the near post.

Patson Daka scored his second and Salzburg’s third in the eleventh minute after receiving a nice pass from Dominik Szoboszlai and beating a defender before putting the ball in the back of the net. Sekou Koita made it four just before the halftime mark to make sure the visitors carried a comfortable lead into the break.

The second half was more of the same as the 2017 CAF young player of the year only needed 44 seconds to complete his hat-trick. Szoboszlai was again on hand to set up the goal with a beautiful cross which Daka met well with a scissor kick leaving Sweene in the Hartberg goal with no chance.

Patson Daka and Dominik Szoboszlai were however withdrawn in the 61st minute for Mërgim Berisha and Karim Adeyemi while at the start of the second half Andreas Ulmer and Vallci made way for Max Wöber and Patrick Farkas. In the 77th minute, Hee-Chan Hwang was introduced for Sekou Koita.

Mwepu turned provider in the 90th minute as he set up Noah Okafor for the sixth goal with his famous Ninkumona pass.

Patson Daka has now scored 21 league goals so far this season and only Shon Weissman (23) has scored more. Salzburg has now opened a seven-point lead at the summit after Wolfsberger AC and LASK Linz played out to a 3-3 draw.
