Tasnim- Liverpool target Sardar Azmoun stole the show as Russian side Rostov produced a huge shock Wednesday night, beating German giant Bayern Munich 3-2.

The 21-year-old, who is nicknamed ‘The Iranian Messi’, put in a fine performance as Rostov won its first ever Champions League game.

Azmoun scored Rostov’s first goal in fine style and managed to leave Bayern defender Jerome Boateng on his backside with a Lionel Messi-esque turn.

After leaving Boateng sprawled on the floor, Azmoun showed great composure to slot home past Sven Ulreich just before half-time to set Rostov on its way.

Dmitri Polov and Christian Nobea scored the Russian side’s goals in a famous win, while Juan Bernat and Douglas Costa were on the target for Bayern.

At the final stage, FC Rostov will play a match with PSV Eindhoven on December 6. FC Bayern will play a game with Atletico on the same day.
