Abdoulie Sanyang, Abdoulie Gassama, Musa Barrow and Dawda Ngum on target over the weekend.
Alieu Fadera, Ali Sowe, Alasana Manneh, Dawda Ngum, and Musa Barrow returned to the starting XI following their famous win against Mali. The Gambia’s last victory against Mali came in 2001 courtesy of Edrisa Sonko’s goal.
Abdoulie Sanyang scored from Saikou Touray’s assist to give Grenoble the crucial points against 𝗔𝗺𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘀 𝗦𝗖. Bamba’s goal was his 7th at the Stade des Alpes in 40 appearances. It was also his sixth goal of the campaign. Saikou Touray, still waiting for his scorpions’ debut, played his 22nd league game. In all, he has started 13 out of them.
Metz registered a 1-0 win courtesy of Mikautadze’s goal in the 49th minute. Saturday’s home win has put Metz in second position with 51 points. Ablie Jallow lasted for 76 minutes.
Musa Barrow scored his third season goal in Bologna’s 3-0 win over Udinese. Musa assisted twice before putting the icing on the cake with a right-footed shot to the bottom right corner in the 49th minute. Barrow was giving a standing ovation when Soriano replaced him.
Speaking to the media after the game, Barrow paid tribute to Mihajlovic, who brought him to the club in January 2020.
“I want to dedicate it to Mihajlovic’s family; I loved the coach,” he told TAT Sports.
“I’m thrilled because I got back to scoring and helped the team win. I miss scoring consistently; you must keep working when the goals don’t come. Europe? Let’s think game by game; we’ll see at the end of the season.”
Ali Sowe missed a penalty in the 58th minute, the opportunity avails itself for him to score the leveler, but Sowe couldn’t hit the target from the spot. Sowe last missed a penalty kick in 2021. MEK Ankaragucu’s 1-0 defeat against Besaksehir has left them with one win in their last five games.
