Emmanuel Emenike got his first goal for his new club Olympiacos in their 3-1 away victory over Partizan Belgrade in Tuesday's Uefa Champions League qualifier.

El Fardou Nabouhane opened scoring for the Greek Super League outfit inside six minutes but they were quickly pegged back by the hosts courtesy Cameroon's Leandre Tawamba.

The first half ended in a draw and Nabouhane again found the target to complete his brace and also the Red-Whites second of the encounter.

Emenike came off the bench for Nabouhane with just two minutes left on the clock but there was still time for him to grab a goal on his debut, scoring on the stroke of 90 minutes to make it 3-1 on the night. 

This win for Besnik Hasi’s men puts them in a commanding position heading back to the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Greece next week for the return leg of this tie.
