The Dutch PSV Eindhoven took the lead after half an hour. Former superstar Mario Gotze, who decided the 2014 World Cup final for Germany, made it 1-0.
A little later, Adnan Januzaj equalized for the Basques and then akasak from close range made it 2-1.
The goal was the 21-year-old Swede’s first in the club’s team this season after being left without goals in three consecutive games in the Spanish league. The goal was also his first in a major European tournament.
– He has fun of course. But for me, it does not matter where I score, says Isak.
At the beginning of the second half, Goethe stood out again when he disbanded midfielder Aritz Elustondo and played until Cody Gaco equalized.
In the 83rd minute, Akasak was substituted in favor of the Norwegian new acquisition Alexander Sherlot. PSV pushed for a winning goal, but the match ended 2-2.
– We knew it would be difficult. It is a team that plays good football, but we also had many opportunities, says the Swede.
In the second match of the group, Monaco defeated the Austrian Sturm Graz 1-0.
