Daka continues to shine for Red Bull Salzburg

Zambia international striker Patson Daka continued his remarkable start to the new 2020-21 season with two more goals as his Red Bull Salzburg side won through to the group stages of the UEFA Champions League on Thursday.

The 21-year-old bagged a brace in a 3-1 home win over Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv that secured a 5-2 aggregate success for the Austrian team, as they make the group stages for the second season running.

Daka has scored in five of his six games so far this campaign, and has a total of nine goals in that time – four in the Austrian Cup, three in the Bundesliga and two in the Champions League.

He is following on from his excellent 2019-20 campaign where he netted 27 goals in all competitions, a tally he will surely be hoping to top this season.

The draw for the group stages of the Champions League will be made on Thursday.
