Emmanuel Sabbi found his first season with Danish Superliga side Hobro IK tough, but this season has seen the striker find his groove in the opening matches.
Sabbi led Hobro to their first win of the season on Saturday, scoring a pair of goals in their 3-2 triumph over Odense. The forward netted three minutes apart in what was a three-goal haul for the hosts in the opening half. The 22-year-old now has four goals in three matches this season, three more than he tallied all of last season.
