Patson Daka out to dethrone Weissman as Salzburg face Wolfsbeger AC
This evening the top two goalscorers in the Austrian Tipico Bundesliga League will come face to face as Redbull Salzburg travel to Wolfsburg for a league match against Wolfsburger AC.
Zambian forward Patson Daka, 21, is the visitors top goalscorer with 23 goals and his tally is the second highest in the league with Wolfsbergers’ Shon Zalman Weissman leading the chart with 25 strikes.
It’s expected to be an epic encounter, Weissman earlier in the week sent out a tweet that looked like it was aimed at the rest of the strikers in the league with a photo of his 25th goal and the caption ‘catch me if you can’.
Daka, on the other hand, has been in scintillating form for Jesse Marsch’s side scoring six goals in his last four league matches and 23 in just 25 league games with four assists.
The 2017 CAF young player of the year in his prematch interview talked about how good Weissman is and clarified that for him winning the league was the priority and not the golden boot.
With only two goals separating the two-goal machines, It will be interesting to see who will get the upper hand and outscore the other in this clash.
Salzburg have won all their games since the league resumed while Wolfsberger has only managed to pick up four points from a possible 18.
Should Salzburg win today they will only need three more wins to successfully defend their title.
Salzburg Probable line-up
Austrian goal minder Cican Stankovic is expected to keep his place between the sticks with Max Wöber partnering Albert Vallci, Andreas Ulmer and Jerome Onguéné in defence.
In midfield, Zlatko Junuzovi, Majid Ashmeru, Enock Mwepu and Dominik Szoboszlai are expected to make up a midfield quartet.
Patson Daka will partner either Korea Republic forward Hee-Chan Hwang or Noah Okafor upfront.
