UCL: AC Milan Overcome Dinamo Zagreb To Seal First Win As Celtic Hold Shakhtar Away

Serie A champions AC Milan recorded their first win in Group E in this season’s Champions League, after overcoming Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 at the San Siro on Tuesday.

Goals from Olivier Giroud, Alexis Saelemaekers and Tommaso Pobega was enough to secure the importance win.

After a tight opening exchange it was Milan who eventually broke the deadlock on the stroke of half time thanks to Giroud who converted from the penalty spot.

In the 47th minute Milan doubled their lead as Leao burst down the left and floated a cross in for Saelemaekers to head home.

However, Dinamo Zagreb got back into it on 56 minutes with a lovely bit of skill, as ex-Bologna and Verona striker Bruno Petkovic was surrounded by defenders and managed to thread a no-look pass across for Mislav Orsic to fire low into the bottom corner.

With 13 minutes left Milan made sure of the three points as Pobega made it 3-1 with a quality finish.

And in Group F, Shakhtar Donetsk missed the chance to record their second win after Celtic forced them to a 1-1 home draw.

Shakhtar went into the game on the back of a 4-1 win away to RB Leipzig in their group opener.

But it was Celtic who took the lead on 10 minutes following an own goal by Artem Bondarenko.

In the 29th minute Shakhtar equalized through Mykhailo Mudryk but Celtic held on to secure their first point.
