Adeyemi arrived on time. His participation in the game against Wolfsburg was doubtful because of some annoyances that he had dragged on since last weekend, but luckily for Salzburg, he was able to start and it did not take three minutes to open the scoring. After Haaland and Daka, the young German is the latest jewel in the Austrian team’s talent pool, specializing in producing elite strikers for the next decade. With yesterday, Adeyemi, what He is only 19 years old, he already has three goals in this Champions League, twelve in total so far this season. The greats of Europe already prepare the checkbook.

After Adeyemi’s goal, who took advantage of a rude mistake by Mbabu to stand alone in front of the goalkeeper and define at the near post, Salzburg was able to sentence the game and half a qualification to the round of 16 with a shot from Okafor that crashed off the crossbar. The whiplash woke Wolfsburg, asleep until that moment. The whole of the Volkswagen rose like a spring and just a few minutes later, Nmecha, emergency starter due to the loss of Werghost, star of the German team, tied with a header after a corner kick. Nmecha was able to go away with a double at halftime but between Wober and Kohn they avoided it.

If something characterizes the Red Bull teams, it is their desire for verticality and taking the initiative of the matches. Surely Jaissle did not like what he saw in the first part and took action on the matter. His talk had to have an effect because the second half was a Salzburg monologue in which the figure of Okafor was enlarged. The Swiss winger was in almost all of them until he found the goal in one of those corners where the ball is dead in the area after several rebounds. He repeated the formula a few minutes later: corner, dead ball and shot on goal.

With this triumph, Salzburg achieved their second consecutive Champions League victory for the first time in their history. The dream of the round of 16 for the Austrian team is closer than ever.
