Samuel Chukwueze scored his first Champions League goal for AC Milan as the hosts were beaten 3-1 by visiting Borussia Dortmund at San Siro last night.

The former Villarreal winger cancelled out Dortmund’s opener by Marcos Reus to set the stage for a possible revival for the Stefano Pioli’s men. 

That however didn’t manifest as Dortmund fired two more goals by Bynoe-Gittens and Karim Adeyemi to leave Milan at the bottom of Group F table on same five points as Newcastle who were forced to a one- all by PSG in the group’s other game last night. 

Only Dortmund is sure of a place in the Last 16 from the Group so far.

Elsewhere, Erling Haaland obliterated a Champions League goalscoring record at Etihad Stadium as Manchester City fought back from two goals down to complete a thrilling 3-2 victory against RB Leipzig.

The Norway forward is the quickest player ever to score 40 goals in the competition – reaching the milestone in just 35 matches, 10 fewer than Ruud van Nistelrooy, the previous record holder.

His goal also sparked a comeback win that ensured City, already through to the last 16, secured top spot in Group G with a game to spare.

For an uncomfortable 40 minutes, it looked as though their proud 28-match unbeaten home European record was about to come to an end.

But the second-half introductions of Julian Alvarez and Jeremy Doku transformed City.
