Forsberg is enhancing his reputation as a man who can make a difference. On Matchday 21, he terrorised the Borussia Mönchengladbach defence in a way he knows best. Forsberg may rarely enter into the opposition's penalty area, but he does a lot of his damage from outside, as his third goal from distance (out of a total of six this season) confirmed.
Timo Werner set him up for that and Forsberg returned the favour with another intelligent ball to tee up the German forward for his 12th of the season.
