Sebastien Haller has become the first player to score five goals in his first two Champions League appearances.

The Cote d’Ivoire international achieved this feat following his goal in Ajax’s 2-0 triumph over Besiktas on Tuesday night, September 28.

The goal he scored on Tuesday meant that the striker is now the first player in the history of the Champions League to net five or more goals across his first two appearances in the contest.

The former best of four goals had been gotten by Marco van Basten, Diego Simeone, Didier Drogba, and Erling Haaland.

Earlier this month in Lisbon, Haller had become the first player to score four goals on his Champions League debut since Marco van Basten for AC Milan against IFK Goteborg in November 1992.
