Both players came off the bench on the weekend to swing the game in their teams' favour.
AVB was on the wrong end of Dzeko's heroics and declared: "If there is a comparable situation to this one, it is Javier Hernandez (on Saturday).
"In the last three games he has scored six times. He has come on and made a difference. Dzeko made the difference with the ambition to show he deserves to be in the final XI.
"It was an individual moment of brilliance, which is recurrent for a player who continues to be on the bench but continues to come on to destroy the opposition."
