Salzburg of Indomitable Lions of Cameroon defender Jerome Onguene have dropped to the knock out round of the 2020-2021 UEFA Europa League following their elimination from the Champions League.
A first-half headed goal from Hermoso and late Yannick Carasco volley was enough for Diego Simoene’s men despite Salzburg dominance in possession all evening.
The host who had squandered numerous opportunities throughout the game with Berisha hitting the post when it was 0-0 accepted a two-nil defeat at home to Atletico Madrid in match-day six of the competition on Wednesday amounting to a third-place finish.
Onguene was a late substitute in the 90th minute at the heart of the Salzburg defense but his introduction was too little, too late, as the damage had been done.
Salzburg woes at homr in the competition remain intact, the Club picked up just one win in nine home games in the competition and four points from six Champions League games this season.
Therefore, Jerome Onguene and his mates will continue their European competition’s journey for this season in the secondary competition.
22-year-old Jerome Onguene featured in four of his side’s six games this season.
The Austrian side are no strangers to the UEFA Europa League and are expected to have a good run in the knock-out stage of this year’s competition.
