Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen scored his first Champions League goal in Wednesday’s clash between Lille and Chelsea in the Group H match of the UEFA Champions League.
Osimhen failed to find the target on his debut in Lille’s 3-0 defeat to Ajax.
Although his lone goal was not enough to secure any point for Lille as Willian’s excellent second-half volley gave Chelsea 2-1 victory.
Chelsea now sit third in Group H following Ajax’s 3-0 win over Valencia.
Luis Suarez scored a brace as Spanish La Liga side Barcelona came from behind to beat Inter Milan in the Champions League Group F match.
Lautaro Martinez gave Antonio Conte’s Inter a deserved lead in the first five minutes of the match and went close to a second, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen expertly keeping out his header.
Suarez levelled with a wonderful volley from Arturo Vidal’s cross.
Then Lionel Messi, on his return from an injury, found Suarez – whose first touch took him past defender Diego Godin – and he blasted in the winner.
Those were Suarez’s first two Champions League group goals in over three years.
