Bayern Munich, Torino and a Chelsea loanee star in our #JF70 young talents of the week, week 12

German Bundesliga young talents to watch

Another week, another roundup of the Just Football #JF70 wonderkids making waves across Europe. Deji Faremi selects the stars who have caught the eye in recent weeks….

Kingsley Coman

He had an impressive 2015/2016 season and key role in France’s run to the Euro 2016 final last summer. So it was only natural to expect a big 2016/2017 season from Kingsley Coman. It hasn’t quite been the case.

There’s been a lot of disappointment for Coman this season. It has not been helped by a capsular rupture in his ankle, which laid him off for a month. He’s managed just four starts for Bayern Munich. But there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. His two goals – his first for almost a year – in Bayern Munich’s 8-0 routing of hapless Hamburg reminded everyone of his ability.

The French international was introduced on the hour mark, and he took advantage of Hamburg’s spiritless defending to score Bayern’s 6th goal just five minutes later. Four minutes after that, he made it 7-0 to Bayern with a stunning strike that left Rene Adler rooted.

It may be too early to expect him to become a regular with the Bavarians. But, back and fit, he could be a real impact player for Carlo Ancelotti’s side as they push to end the season with a treble.

Adam Ounas

Adam Ounas delivered one of the performances of the month in France in Bordeaux’s 3-2 win away against Lille in February. The 20-year-old winger only got the nod to step on the Stade Pierre-Mauroy pitch with 15 minutes of normal time to play. As it turned out, that was all he needed.

He had barely stepped on the pitch when he did this:

Then, with eight minutes to play, he scored this amazing solo goal:

Those two goals, worth their weight in gold, were Ounas’ first Ligue 1 goals of the season.

Andrea Belotti

Il Gallo didn’t let a missed penalty in the second half stop him from helping Torino secure a point at Artemio Franchi on Monday night.

Hosts Fiorentina took a 2-0 lead into the second half, but Andrea Belotti was gifted a chance to half his side’s deficit with a penalty 16 minutes into the 2nd half. Unfortunately, he could only find the woodwork with his effort.

Four minutes later, he redeemed himself. He headed home from three yards after Emiliano Moretti squared the ball. His leveller came with five minutes to play; again he showed his striker’s instinct to steal in at the far post and bury a Daniele Baselli pass.

Andrea Belotti’s consistency continues – despite Torino’s own massive inconsistency. His brace that weekend took him up to 19 Serie A goals for the season, making him joint level in the Capocannoniere race.

The 23-year-old is still yet to go two consecutive games without a goal since October 2016.

Milot Rashica

Milot Rashica makes his first appearance in our weekly review, after scoring his second Eredivisie goal of the season in Vitesse’s 3-1 win at Go Ahead Eagles.

Rashica struck with venom and amazing precision to increase his side’s lead to 3-0 with 10 minutes to play.

The 20-year-old had an impressive all round game. The Kosovan was a thorn in the flesh of Go Ahead Eagles, attempting more dribbles (7), and having the joint-highest successful dribbles (4) of all the players in the match.

Bertrand Traore

Bertrand Traore enjoyed another productive game for Ajax in their 4-1 win over their visitors Heracles, outshining fellow #JF70 entrant Kasper Dolberg on this rare occasion.

Traore was a constant attacking outlet for title-chasing Ajax, as his game high number of nine shots shows. He was also tied for most shots on target (3).

The Burkina Faso international was rewarded for his hard work in the 90th minute. The young forward was able to squeeze in a free kick at the near post to seal Ajax’s win.

The 21-year-old Chelsea loanee has scored six goals this season for Ajax. That tally makes him the club’s joint-third top scorer in the Eredivisie.
