Osimhen Fires Blank in Lille's Bad Trip to Ajax

Super Eagles young striker, Victor Osimhen was at the receiving end on his Champions League debut for Lille OSC.

Last season's beaten semi-finalists Ajax opened their 2019-20 Champions League campaign with a convincing 3-0 win over Lille on Tuesday.
The 20-year-old was on from start to  finish and could not add to his five goals this term as Erik Hag's side – who were denied a place in the final by Tottenham last term – were in dominant mood against their Ligue 1 opponents and looked well placed to claim all three points from the outset in Amsterdam.
Quincy Promes headed them into an 18th-minute lead before Edson Alvarez scored his first goal for the club five minutes after the interval.
Nicolas Tagliafico added a third with a thumping header after 62 minutes as the Dutch champions stormed into pole position in Group H.
