Tom Saintfiet witnessed a thriller at the Stadio Via del Mare. Thanks to Lewis Ferguson’s curler, Bologna fought back twice and won it in stoppage time. 

Musa Barrow set up Arnautovic to register his eighth season assist, the highest among Gambian foreign-based players this campaign. Barrow’s cross from the left found the Austrian international, who connected with a towering header. There was a save on Ceesay’s effort; moments later, Bologna went 2-1 through Joshua Zirkzee. 


Ablie Jallow played in Metz FC’s decisive match against Bastia, assisting the second goal, which they won 3-2 to seal their return to Ligue1. Below is Ablie stats in Ligue2 33 Matches 6 Goals and 6 Assists. Ablie has only played two matches in Ligue1; a dream awaits him next season.


Stelios Kitsiou’s lone goal gave MKE Ankaragücü’müz three points against Kayserispor; Ali Sowe captained his side for the 3rd time this season. However, the Gambian international has been goalless in the last six matches. 

Ebrima Colley came on in the 67th minute in Konyaspor’s 1-1 draw against Fatih Karagümrük. Colley, who played on the Right Wing, had his last start against Fenerbahce on matchday 28.

Captain Omar Colley sat out in Besiktas 5-2 win over Kasımpaşa on Saturday due to suspension. Colley played nine games before Saturday; Besiktas won eight and drew only once. 


Both the Super League and Nordic Bet wrapped up the season on Sunday in Denmark. 

Odense Bk lost against FC Midtjylland by 4-2, while AC Horsen’s goalless draw against Lyngby saw them relegated to Division One. Yankuba Minteh wasn’t included in the 18-man squad as he nears a move to Newcastle, while Alasana Manneh played his 18th league match. The Jutland club was last relegated in 2020/2021, and will be James Gomez’s second term playing in the second division.

Viborg FF and Alasana Jatta were held to a stalemate in Farum against Nordsjælland and finished the season in fourth position. Alasana Jatta lasted for 73 minutes. The former Real de Banjul striker started the club’s last four league matches. This means they will be in a playoff match against FC Midtjylland.
