Leo Bonatini scored for the third game running for Grasshoppers this weekend.

The striker, on a two-year loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, has started to find some momentum this season after starting the campaign with a torn meniscus.

The Swiss outfit were 2-0 down after just 10 minutes against FC Zurich, thanks to goals from Rodrigo Pollero and Blerim Dzemaili.

Minutes later though, VAR instructed the referee to go to the pitchside monitor following a challenge in the area, and he awarded a penalty for the hosts for a foul on Petar Pusic.

Wolves man Bonatini stepped up, dispatching confidently to send the goalkeeper the wrong way.

Grasshoppers then turned the game on its head.

Further goals came from Georg Margreitter and former Wolves player Christian Herc.

They couldn’t hold onto their lead in the second-half though, with Pollero grabbing his second.

So it has been a good past few weeks for Bonatini, who now has three in three.

He has also notched a couple of assists in his last four.

Money to be made on Bonatini?

Hopefully, Bonatini can enjoy a fruitful second season at Grasshoppers.

He missed the first five league games thanks to his injury, and it’s good to see him getting back amongst the goals.

Last term he scored 13 across all competitions, which was a decent return.

The more productive he can be, then the more money Wolves stand to make on him next year.

The player is under contract until 2023 at Molineux.

Realistically, Wolves will be looking to sell next summer before his value starts to plummet.
