African footballer, Sebastien Haller who plays for the Ivory Coast national team, has been Ajax Amsterdam's topscorer in the Eredivisie and in the Uefa Champions league. Sebastien Haller scored an incredible 9 goals in 13 matches with 3 assists for the 2021/22 season in the Eredivisie to date, but has impressed even more in the Uefa Champions league as he scored the same amount of goals (9) in just 5 matches in the prestigious European tournament.

Sebastien Haller scored both goals against Besiktas in Group C, as Ajax only conceded once in the early minutes of the first half of the match. Besiktas opened the scoring very early in the 22nd minute of the match when Rachid Ghezzal scored from the penalty spot to claim the lead at 1-0. The Ivorian striker Sebastien Haller made his appearance in the 46th minute of the match as he replaced Mohammed Daramy.

Sebastien Haller got off the mark just 8 minutes after he made his appearance as he scored his first goal in the 54th minute of the match as he levelled the score on 1-1. Sebastien Haller found the back of the net for the second time just 15 minutes later when he scored in the 69th minute to lead the match at 2-1. Ajax Amsterdam held onto their lead and won the match 2-1 at full-time to claim top spot in Group C, with Sporting CP in second place, Dortmund in third and Besiktas in the fourth place spot.
