Since Ronaldinho and Kaka… the fastest and youngest player to score for Milan in the Champions League.

Brahim Diaz led his Italian team AC Milan to a 1-0 victory over their English guest Tottenham Hotspur in their match on Tuesday night in the first leg of round 16 of the European Champions League.

And when the seventh minute came, Diaz managed to put Milan ahead, after he successfully opened the scoring with a goal that came from a powerful shot by Theo Hernandez that was blocked by the goalkeeper and then Diaz with a kick that the goalkeeper also blocked, but Diaz hit back with a header that hit the net.

Thus, Diaz scored the fastest goal for Milan (6 minutes and 24 seconds) in the Champions League play-off match since Ronaldinho’s goal against Manchester United in February 2010 (2 minutes and 11 seconds).

Diaz became the youngest player to score for Milan (23 years and 195 days) in a Champions League play-off match since Kaka in 2004, with a brace against Deportivo La Coruña in the quarter-finals (21 years and 336 days).

The Milan team took the lead in the Champions League quarter-finals but will face a tough challenge in the second leg, which will take place on the ground of rivals Tottenham Hotspur next Wednesday 8 March at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London’s capital.
