Sébastien Haller will go down in the books as the first player ever to score four goals for a Dutch club in the Champions League.

The Ivorian international of Ajax made the 0-1, 0-2, 1-4 and 1-5 against Sporting CP in Lisbon on Wednesday and 1-5 was also the final score.

With Marco van Basten in 1992 against IFK Göteborg, there is a Dutch player who scored four times in a Champions League match, but he did so in the service of AC Milan.

Like Haller, that was his debut in the ball of millions.

There are two players who once scored five times in a Champions League match.

These are Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano in 2014 against BATE Borisov and Lionel Messi in 2012 on behalf of FC Barcelona against Bayer Leverkusen.

Ajax's 1-5 at Sporting is good for more milestones and records.

The team of coach Erik ten Hag equaled the club's biggest win ever in the Champions League of 26 years ago.

On September 27, 1995, the team from Amsterdam, led by Louis van Gaal, won 1-5 at Ferencvaros.

At the time, Jari Litmanen made a hat-trick.

Haller scored the first goal against Sporting in the second minute and within eight minutes he also signed for the 0-2.

That was also a record: never before did Ajax lead so early in a Champions League match with two goals difference.
