He's called the 'new Haaland' for a reason: 14 goals in 16 games!
Is Daka really 'the new Haaland´ of RB Salzburg? This is the question we are asking ourselves just months after the Norweigan's departure as we watch the rapid rise of the 21-year-old for the Austrian side.
The comparison between Patson Daka and the Borussia Dortmund goalscorer isn't that farfetched. After just 16 competitive games since football returned after the COVID-19 pandemic, the Zambian international has notched 14 goals and, as if that weren't enough, 3 assists.
But that's not all. If we focus on the month of September, the RB Salzburg goalscorer racked up seven goals in the space of just five games, stats that have made him stand out as the team's best finisher.
The four goals he netted in an Austria Cup game against third division side Schwarz-Weiß Bregenz, stand out.
