Emmanuel Sabbi continues to score goals for Hobro during a crucial part of the Danish season.
The American forward’s lone goal on Thursday gave Hobro a 1-0 first-leg win over Viborg in the Danish Superliga relegation playoff. Hobro was put under pressure for most of the match, being out-possessed and outshot by the visitors.
Sabbi’s goal came in the 30th-minute at the DS Arena, which gives Hobro an advantage heading into the second-leg. It is his seventh goal in all competitions this season and his second of the relegation playoffs.
Fellow American Christian Cappis came off the bench for Hobro, playing the final 20+ minutes.
The 21-year-old has made 30 appearances for Hobro this season and will need a big performance on Sunday for his side to remain in the Danish top-flight.
Hobro travels to Viborg on Sunday for a 12 p.m. EST kickoff.
