The Mexican Santiago Gimenez He made his debut in the Champions League with two goals to guide Feyenoord to victory against Lazio, in a duel where the score ended 3-1 corresponding to the third day of group E.

The Mexican's eleventh extended the score at the end of the first half with a right-footed score by Zerrouki to make the score 2-0.
The Dutch league team continued the attack and quickly in the 52nd minute Giménez gave a new warning when he sent a shot just above Provedel's hut, again with a left-footed shot.
That warm-up helped him make it 3-0 and Giménez's second score in the 74th minute, when Quinten Timber made a shot that the goalkeeper did not control with his hands, leaving the ball at the mercy of the Mexican who showed no mercy.
Giménez was removed from the field of play for a substitution shortly after his second goal, when the job was already done.
Lazio scored their only goal courtesy of Pedro in the 83rd minute.
Now it is: GOLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA with…
