UEFA Champions League WATCH: Chukwueze scores first AC Milan goal in defeat

Nigeria international 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 on Tuesday night.

The former Villarreal winger cancelled out Dortmund’s opener by Marcos Reus to set the stage for a possible revival for 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 the Group F table on the same five points as Newcastle who were forced to a one- all by PSG in the group’s other game.

Milan earlier had a chance to open the scoring but Olivier Giroud missed his penalty in the sixth minute as he was denied by Gregor Kobel. Marco Reus then scored the opener with a penalty of his own in the 10th minute sending his effort into the top-left corner.

Chukwueze, 24, joined AC Milan over the summer after five impressive seasons with Villarreal in Spain but has been slowly integrated into Stefano Pioli’s team so far. Only Dortmund is sure of a place in the Last 16 from the Group so far.
