League summary (as for 29 April 2020):

Eredivisie 2019/2020: 19 games/5 goals/3 assists (Sparta Rotterdam)



Ragnar Ache is one of the most underrated young German strikers in his age category. Currently, the other top strikers from his age group are Janni Serra and Mergim Berisha. In theory, it is some very fair competition, and Ache could actually overtake them after his move to Frankfurt. Ache seems poised to become the next great striker for Frankfurt. Coming fresh out of the Eredivisie playing for a mediocre Sparta Rotterdam, he still was productive scoring 5 goals and providing 3 assists. If he can stay injury-free, he has a great chance of becoming Frankfurt’s main man up front.
