Lukas Schmitz excellent as hungry Wolfsberger take three off Hartberg

The German wasn't involved in any of the goals, but that doesn't mean he didn't contribute

Wolfsberger won for the first time in three games at the weekend after comfortably dispatching of Hartberg 3-0.

It shows the level of performance put in by Lukas Schmitz that he didn't gain a goal or an assist from left-back, only to emerge as the top performer of the Bundesliga weekend.

He was superb down the left wing, contributing going forward as well as defensively.

With 112, he had, by far, the most touches of anyone in this round of fixtures, with team-mate Michael Liendl the closest with 97. He completed 61/69 passes, 35 of which were sent into the final third.

If not for the profligacy of his attacking team-mates on occasion, he probably would have recorded an assist as he sent nine crosses into the box and set up one 'big' chance which was squandered.

Defensively, he won 5/10 duels and 2/3 aerial duels, as well as making five ball recoveries, six interceptions, and three clearances.
