Milik gives Napoli perfect start in Champions league with 2-1 win over Dynamo Kyiv
Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik scored twice in the first half as Napoli came from behind to snatch a 2-1 away win over 10-man Dynamo Kyiv at NSC Olimpiyskiy in the Champions League Group B opening round on Tuesday, according to Daily Mail.
Dynamo Kyiv fought tenaciously from the start and put the technically gifted Italian side under pressure with a 26th-minute opener from Denys Garmash before Milik headed in twice to take advantage of shoddy defending in the air, Daily Mail wrote.
The 18-year-old Viktor Tsygankov, a surprise Dynamo Kyiv debutant, headed the ball into Garmash's path to set up the opening goal before Milik volleyed over stranded keeper Oleksandr Shovkovskiy to equalize.
