Adama Bojang was an unused substitute in Reim’s win over Lorient; the Gambia U20 striker was also on the bench in their 1-1 draw against Toulouse.
James Gomez started his third league game for Sparta Praha as the champions were handed their first defeat. Mlada Boleslav’s 3-1 victory was inspired by goals from Kusej, Marek, and substitute Lamin Jawo, who now has scored back-to-back to take his tally to five league goals.
Ebrima Colley was making his fourth league appearance for Young Boys as coach Raphael Wicky made rotation to the team that lost home against Manchester City. Colley, who is yet to make his Champions League debut, was handed a start and lasted 77 minutes in Young Boyz’s 1-1 draw against Lugano. Saidy Janko also came in the second half.

Alasana Manneh returned from suspension to play in OB’s barren draw away to Silkeborg.
FodayTrawally scored his eighth goal of the season. Incredible enough, all his goals came from the second half, and Saturday’s goal is his third brace of the season.
Bubacarr Tambedou has now faced the champions FC Flora and lost all encounters. However, he has two goals involved, which include a goal and an assist. Tambedou broke the deadlock in the 10th minute, but the host replied twice to register a comeback.

Youssou Sanyang and Abdoulie Gassama got the last laugh as the duo found the back of the net on the season premiere. Abdoulie Gassama scored a stunning free-kick to take his Ligue1 goal tally to 29 goals.
In the Ligue2, Amat Jallow scored his first goal for Amitie FC in their 2-0 win over HLM. The midfielder shot at the edge of the box, which went into the net.
