Sory Kaba currently has the 7th-highest xG (4.9) of any player in the #sldk so far this season, despite scoring just 2 goals for @fcmidtjylland. 📊

He has underperformed his xG (scored less than expected) more than any other player. 📉

The match

As they just needed a point to guarantee promotion and Elversberg had to win, the side in second threw everything at Freiburg in the closing stages. Atubolu was excellent as he made a few stops to deny Elversberg and secure the point needed for his side.
