Ricardo Pepi began his loan spell with Dutch side FC Groningen on Sunday and played a key role in an important road victory for the club.
Pepi came off the bench at Cambuur and set up the winning goal in a 1-0 result. It was Pepi’s first appearance for the Eredivisie side following his loan move from FC Augsburg. Pepi helped spring a counter-attack in the 71st minute, laying off a pass out wide to a streaking Tomas Suslov. Suslov eventually cut onto his left foot before hitting a low drive into the bottom-right corner of Joao Virginia’s net. Pepi logged 45 minutes in his club debut, completing seven of nine passes, winning four duels, and completing two tackles. The 19-year-old will now be pushing to start FC Groningen’s final match this month, a Sept. 17 road match at Sparta Rotterdam.
