Awer Mabil’s sensational recent form continued earlier this morning.
The attacker’s brace sent Midtjylland to the Danish Superliga summit in an emphatic 5-0 win.
Meanwhile, Tom Rogic’s Celtic hit pole position in the Scottish Premiership race and there was a title-clinching win for Alex Gersbach’s Rosenborg.
Awer Mabil has been on fire for both club and country recently, and the 23-year-old’s rich vein of form continued in Midtjylland’s 5-0 win over Vejle BK.
The 23-year-old winger opened the rout with a cool finish at the back post and slotted away a smooth breakaway second when he sent the ball through the legs of the Vejle BK keeper past the hour mark.
Mabil had chances to secure his first career hat-trick but couldn’t manage to bury two other chances that fell his way in the second half. Regardless, the former Adelaide United flyer has registered four goals and eight assists in 12 Superligaen matches.
It was also a very happy morning in Scandinavia for Alex Gersbach, whose Rosenborg side clinched the Norwegian title after defeating Brann 1-0.
Gersbach wasn’t included in the match-day squad, but has made three starts and three bench appearances for the Norwegian giants this season. It’s Rosenborg’s 26th league title.
Tom Rogic’s Celtic have taken another step toward silverware too. Rogic’s side were ultimately frustrated in their 0-0 draw with Livingston, but the result sees the Glaswegians return to the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Rogic produced two of Celtic’s best moments – first striking a rebound off a Livingston defender which narrowly sailed over the crossbar, before pulling a top drawer save from Liam Kelly with a curling shot destined for the top corner until the Livingston keeper’s intervention
Danny Vukovic’s Genk are also on top of the league in Belgium, having kept a 0-0 draw at R. Excel Mouscron. In Austria, James Jeggo played 90 minutes as Austria Wien went down 2-0 to league leaders Red Bull Salzburg.
