First he scored 3-0, then 4-0 and he finally scored 6-0. To top it all, he also got an assist in the match. The first goal Hrgota scored was tapped into an empty goal. His second goal, 4-0, was of great class. First he took the ball, then he put it distinctly in the far corner and also the third goal was of great skill. He received the ball at the edge of he penalty area, turned around and placed it coolly into the far corner of the keeper. 

Borussia Mönchengladbach won the match by 7-0.

Now, the Swedish striker is in the top of Europa League's top scorer chart, with five goals in just two matches.

The German team advances to the next round with an aggregate score of 10-2. In the first meeting, which ended 3-2, Hrgota scored two goals. Monchengladbach have played four competitive games during 2014/15. In those games, Hrgota has scored seven goals.

Pressure from the media has been great towards the Sweden coach, Erik Hamrén to include Hrgota, especially since it has been rumored that Croatia and Bosnia have been out to get Hrgota to choose their national team.

A national team like Sweden does not have forwards who score in the teams playing in the major leagues.
