Franco DI SANTO and Sergio AGUERO both found the back of the net for their clubs on Tuesday night.
Schalke’s number 9 and Argentina international Franco DI SANTO scored his second goal of the season in his club’s 3-2 win against Augsburg. The win sends Schalke into second place in the German Bundesliga table. DI SANTO’s goal came on the stroke of half time in the 44th minute with a lovely back heel flick passed the goalkeeper. Per the Bundesliga’s report, this match marked DI SANTO’s 100th appearance in the Bundesliga.
As a throwback Thursday side note, Franco’s goal came in the same stadium as Argentina’s 2-1 victory against the Ivory Coast at the 2006 FIFA World Cup when Hernan CRESPO and Javier SAVIOLA netted for Argentina.
In the Premier League, Sergio AGUERO scored a goal himself in City’s 4-0 victory way to Swansea. AGUERO scored City’s fourth of the match. Manchester City maintain their lead at the top of the league. The goal takes AGUERO into third place in the Premier League goal scorers list for the season. Here are the top four:
Mohamed SALAH (Liverpool), 13 goals
Harry KANE (Tottenham), 12 goals
Sergio AGUERO (Manchester City), 10 goals
Wayne ROONEY (Everton), 9 goals
