Brenden Aaronson delivered his first pair of assists of the new Austrian Bundesliga campaign on Sunday, helping Red Bull Salzburg roll to its second-straight league win.
Aaronson assisted twice for Matthias Jaissle’s side, leading Red Bull Salzburg to a 7-1 win over Ried. The former Philadelphia Union midfielder continued to start for the defending Austrian champs and showed once again his dangerous abilities in the final third.
His first assist came in the 40th minute after playing right back Rasmus Kristensen in on goal with a through ball pass. Kristensen scored to double Salzburg’s lead at 2-0 before halftime. Aaronson delivered his second assist in the 61st minute, setting up Karim Adeyemi before being substituted off in the 64th.
Up next for Red Bull Salzburg is a friendly against La Liga heavyweights Barcelona on August 4 before hosting Austria Vienna in league play on August 8.
