Champions League: Richmond Boakye-Yiadom on target as Red Star Belgrade pip Olympiacos

Richmond Boakye-Yiadom was on target for Red Star Belgrade as they rallied to beat 10-man Olympiacos 3-1 at home in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The visitors had a 1-0 lead by half-time and were completely in charge of the contest, however Yassine Benzia’s dismissal in the 57th minute swang the tie in Belgrade’s favor.

They restored parity through Milos Vulic before Nemanja Milunovic put them in front late in the game.

In the 90th minute, Boakye-Yiadom jumped highest inside the box to meet a perfectly executed corner kick by Marko Marin to seal the win.

The Ghanaian international was introduced on the hour mark as replacement for van La Parra.
