In the early Wednesday Champions League games, Inter Milan beat Shakhtar Donetsk at home thanks to two goals from Edin Dzeko. In Ajax Amsterdam's win at Besiktas Istanbul, Sébastien Haller is in the spotlight.
In Group C, Sebastien Haller from Ajax Amsterdam scored twice. The Dutch celebrated their fifth win in their fifth game in a 2-1 (0-1) win at Besiktas Istanbul. First, Rachid Ghezzal had put the home side in the lead (22nd), before the substitute Haller turned up (54th/69th). Besiktas remains pointless and does not even have a chance to hibernate in the Europa League. Ajax secured the victory in the Borussia Dortmund group.
So the Dutch should be happy. Especially Ajax goalie André Onana. He celebrated his comeback against the Turks. The Cameroonian goalkeeper was suspended due to a doping offense until early November. The 25-year-old played his last competitive game for Ajax in January 2020 against AZ Alkmaar (3-0). Despite the long break, Onana is still on the list of some top clubs. His contract expires in the summer, then the goalkeeper is available for a free transfer.
Italy's champions Inter Milan are a big step closer to the last sixteen in the Champions League. The Nerazzurri won 2-0 (0-0) against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. Striker Edin Dzeko became the decisive man on the field with a brace in a game dominated by the home side (61st/67th minute). Previously, the alleged goals by Ivan Perisic and Lautaro Martinez had not found recognition due to rule violations.
That's it! Ajax wins 2-1 and is therefore the group winners, Inter wins 2-0 and can now watch what Real does in Tiraspol.
