Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal since returning to Inter Milan as his side edged past Red Bull Salzburg in Group D in the Champions League.

Oscar Gloukh levelled for the visitors in the second half.

Hakan Calhanoglu sealed Inter’s win from the spot after Lucas Gourna-Douath fouled Davide Frattesi in the area.

The hosts finished strongly and could have had a third only for Lautaro Martinez to have an 81st-minute strike ruled out for an earlier offside.

Sanchez’s opener for Inter took him to 16 goals in the Champions League, and sees him overtake Arturo Vidal (15) to become the top scoring Chilean in the competition.

Inter are top of Group D on seven points from three matches, while RB Salzburg are third on three points.
