Ziyech: Chelsea star equals Chamakh’s Champions League record

 The 28-year-old found the net against the Blue Ones to become the joint-highest scoring Moroccan in the competition’s history

Hakim Ziyech’s second-half strike in Chelsea’s 1-0 triumph over Malmo FF has seen him match Marouane Chamakh to become the joint-highest scoring Moroccan in Uefa Champions League history.

He was named in the starting XI against the Allsvenskan outfit and repaid Thomas Tuchel’s faith in him by netting the only goal four minutes from the hour mark thanks to a Callum Hudson-Odoi assist.

That effort was his eighth in the competition’s history – which saw him equal Chamakh’s mark – a feat the 37-year-old achieved during his time at Bordeaux and Arsenal.
