Red Bull Salzburg continue to score goals at an incredible rate, and after scoring three in defeat at Anfield in midweek they struck six against Altach when back on domestic duty.

20-year-old forward Patson Daka is the latest forward to build his profile, scoring three goals in victory. His first was slotted home with conviction with his left foot then from a similar position beat the goalkeeper at his near post, before rounding off his treble with a simple tap-in. Remember the name - Daka is set to become a household name at one of the most desirable production-line clubs in the world at the moment.
