Alexis gets his second consecutive Champions League goal for another man of the match display

Saelemaekers has got the taste of it. After his equaliser last week at the Red Bull Arena in Salzburg, he grabbed another goal in the 3-1 home win over Dinamo Zagreb to top off another all-round fine performance for the Belgian 23-year-old. He was busy and involved in both sides of the game, showing industry and quality on the ball that has seen him awarded once again as the MVP.

On our official App, the number 56 received 44% of the vote outdoing Leão, who won the penalty and set up Alexis - and the final goalscorer to seal the match, Tommaso Pobega.

Alexis has found his bearings in Europe's top competition, after his apprenticeship last season, and has become AC Milan's first player to score in the opening two matchdays in the Champions League since Zlatan Ibrahimović in 2010/11.

His statistics in these opening two matches highlight his outstanding performances: nine successful dribbles, selflessly covering almost 20km and three ball recoveries.
