Marcel Sabitzer’s already great skill set has been expanded again this season. The FB attacker has made a name for himself in Europe with his dangerous distance scares. Now one of his goals has been awarded by UEFA.

Marcel Sabitzer is comfortable in the form of his life. The 25-year-old plays a key role in the new system under coach Julian Nagelsmann and is in the fast game on the pitch of RB Leipzig, only in the rather unimportant Champions League game against Olympique Lyon the old Upper Austria did not come to a halt.

Sabitzer contributed 11 goals and seven assists (in 23 games). A strong balance sheet that also catapults its market value to a record high of 40 million euros.

And that probably won’t go down, because UEFA officially kicked Marcel Sabitzer’s dream goal in the 2-1 home win over Zenit St. Petersburg to the goal of the group stage. The homers were caught in the 44th minute by Rakitsky, beating the FB kickers in the second half.

Konrad Laimer equalised after Sabitzer’s submission in the 49th minute, ten minutes spéter, Sabitzer made the winning goal for the tongue-lashing when he took a flank with his chest and circled the ball into the long corner with the full-length volley in the half-volley.
