Sanchez scores as Inter beat Salzburg


Alexis Sánchez of Internazionale (L) plays against Strahinja Pavlovic of Salzburg (R) during the UEFA Champions League Group Stage match between FC Internazionale and FC Salzburg at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on October 24, 2023 in Milan, Italy. 

Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal since returning to Inter Milan as his side edged past Red Bull Salzburg in Group D in the Champions League.

The 34-year-old, who re-joined Inter on a 12-month deal this summer, opened the scoring in the 19th minute with a cool side-footed finish.

Oscar Gloukh levelled for the visitors in the second half.

Hakan Calhanoglu sealed Inter's win from the spot after Lucas Gourna-Douath fouled Davide Frattesi in the area.

The hosts finished strongly and could have had a third only for Lautaro Martinez to have an 81st-minute strike ruled out for an earlier offside.

Sanchez's opener for Inter took him to 16 goals in the Champions League, and sees him overtake Arturo Vidal (15) to become the top scoring Chilean in the competition.

Inter are top of Group D on seven points from three matches, while RB Salzburg are third on three points.
