By: Baboucarr Fallaboweh 

Super sub-Foday Trawally strikes again, Baboucarr Gaye with a deserved clean sheet. Metz handed a blow in the promotion race. Assist for Musa Barrow and Dembo Darboe. Goals from Yusupha Njie, Yankuba Minteh & Susso Bamba. Title celebrations for Bubacarr Tambedou and Maudo Jarjue wrapped up a brilliant weekend for the scorpions abroad. 


Musa Barrow and Bologna beat relegated Cremonese 5-1. Barrow had a great game as he registered two assists. First, Barrow seemed to attempt a curler to the far top corner from the edge of the box. However, as it went off-target, Marko Arnautovic redirected it with a header. Despite being down to 10 men, Bologna still made it 5-0 on the counter with Barrow’s slide-rule pass for substitute Nicola Sansone to nutmeg a defender with the finish. 

In Serie B, FROSINONE came from behind to beat TERNANA 3-2, with Gambian-born Kalifa Kujabi making his second appearance for the newly promoted side. 


Keven Schlotterbeck handed a point to VfL Bochum 1848 following a 94th-minute equalizer against Hertha BSC. Saidy Janko maintained his position in the starting XI. Now, Bochum will host Bayer 04 Leverkusen at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion (Saturday, 27 May, 15:30). 

The Rothosen beat Greuther Fürth 2-1 on Saturday evening; Miro Muheim netted a dream goal (27th minute) in the first half, and substitute Lazslo Benes (69th) were the match winners in front of 56,500 spectators in the once again sold-out Volksparkstadion. 

The only downer of the evening was that Bakery Jatta was shown a yellow card in the 87th minute and will therefore miss the season’s final game. 


Metz’s promotion bid was dealt a blow as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Guingamp. Bordeaux, on the other hand, won and opened up two points lead. Ablie Jallow lasted for 87 minutes. 

Yankuba Jarju broke his goal drought, seeing him go 11 games without scoring. However, he gave SO Cholet the crucial three points on Friday. Jarju’s 10th league goal came from a thumping header against Paris 13 Atletico. 


Yusupha Njie scored a 90+3 minute equalizer in Boavista Porto 1-1 against SC Braga. Although the half-volley was Yusupha’s 13th league goal, Njie, who played the full throttle, was voted the Man of the Match. 


Ali Sowe captain MKE Ankaragucu in their 2-1 win against Umraniyespor. In the 1. lig, Pa Amat Dibba assisted Ryan Babel for the winner against Keciörengucu. Eyupspor is one of the teams occupying the playoff spot position. 


Baboucarr Gaye returned between the sticks for Lokomotiv Sofia in their 2-0 victory over Botev Plovdiv. Friday’s match was the 25-year-old 10th league match, and his third clean sheet as Lokomotiv’s had their first win in their last seven matches in all competitions. 


Yankuba Minteh was on target in Odense Bk’s 4-0 win against Lyngby. Minteh doubled the visitors’ lead after being set by Alasana Manneh. Minteh has scored four league goals, while Alasana Maneh has two assists. 

Hamza Barry lasted 85 minutes when champions Vejle battered Nasteved 3-1. 


Foday, Trawally fired Tallinn Kalev to 3rd in the standings. Trawally came off the bench to score the equalizer and the match-winner against FC Kuressaare. Saturday’s goals have seen Trwally score four in the last two matches.  


FC Sheriff became the 21-time champions of Moldova following their 4-0 win against FC Milsami. Tambedou, on loan from Paide, scored the fourth goal, his first league and home goal for the champions. 


Slovenia Durga Liga 

Susso Bamba wrapped up the season with his 15th goal of the campaign when he gave Bilje the lead in the 15th minute. However, the visitor NK Nafta responded thrice to return home with all three points. 


Dembo Darboe came off the bench to set up Elkhan for the winner. Darboe was put through in the 18-yard. He dribbled past the defender before placing a pass for Elkhan, who made no mistake for the goal in the stoppage time.
