They just spent a record fee to bring in Pepi. They didn’t just do that for Pepi’s future, which obviously remains bright. They also did that for Pepi’s present, as they believe that he is the player that will fire them to safety and beyond. When you’re a club like Augsburg, you don’t spend that much money on a striker that won’t save you this season.
Pepi isn’t overly fast, strong or tricky, but he is a real scorer. He puts himself in positions to do damage, and he’s complete enough in every aspect of the game to threaten most defenders. In that sense, it’s very possible that Pepi is that missing piece, the one that turns that possession and those chances into the goals that save their season.
There’s no perfect science when it comes to making the leap from MLS to Europe, no true roadmap that can pinpoint what’s right and wrong. That line, the one that determines success or failure, is often so fine, especially at the top levels of European soccer where competition is fierce and the level is very high.
