Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic opened the scoring as the Nerazzurri defeated Sheriff Tiraspol 3-1 away to get three vital points and move into second place in their Champions League group, taking a big step towards the knockout rounds.
The goal was massively significance for the team but also, as football statistics company Opta points out, a big individual milestone for the Croat who found the back of the net for the first time in Europe’s top competition.
Opta’s tweet reads, “1 – Marcelo Brozovic scored his first #UCL goal, in his 27th appearance and with his 22nd shot in the competition. Unlock.”
