But in this blazing start, the red wave gradually takes over the white one, and soon Salzburg seems little more than a vulgar sand castle ravaged by the waves. And sinking himself twice, Wöber dried Lewandowski twice by ten minutes apart, giving the former Pozna the chance to get his people to safety from eleven meters (1-0, 12and then 2-0, 22and† Two goals, and soon three for the now top scorer in the Champions League, who came to counter the late exit of the hapless Köhn to finish with the post in the empty goal after a one-two (3-0, 23and† Just in time to clear Marco Simone’s record and his hat-trick in 24 minutes against Rosenborg one evening in September 1996. Executioner of the evening, Lewy nevertheless leaves a small light to Serge Gnabry, goalscorer after a ball recovered by Coman in the feet of Camera, aged (4-0, 31and
