Whilst his excellent assist was the difference in the game, where he broke the Leverkusen offside trap in the 93rd minute before racing clear and squaring for Yussuf Poulsen, the Sweden international could have had even more assists to his name had the chances he created gone in.
With two shots himself, Forsberg also provided his team-mates with five further opportunities to score before Poulsen finally put away the winner in injury time. The game could have been out of sight before extra time had his fellow RBL players taken the chances provided.
Will he now race away with the #BLMVP prize? You decide!
