It's a game Yusuf Yazici won't forget in a hurry.

The 23-year-old Turk ended Milan's 24-game unbeaten streak in all competitions with a fine hat-trick and his performance won't go unnoticed by many sides around the continent.

📷 Yazici: Match Snapshot

⏱️ 22' Yazici smashed home a left-footed penalty to give the French side the lead. The Turkey international sent Milan stopper Gigio Donnarumma the wrong way.

⏱️ 55' If the build up play to Yazici's second goal of the evening was sumptuous, the finish itself was a tad fortuitous. A smart give-and-go with Jonathan Ikone on the edge of the area saw Yazici with the ball some 20 metres from goal.

Yazici's long-range effort should've been saved by Donnarumma, but the ball bounces awkwardly in front of the keeper, and deflects off the 21-year-old into the roof of the net.

⏱️ 58' Yazici completes his remarkable hat-trick three minutes later, as Lille race up the length of the pitch on the counter in three passes. Yazici runs into the path of Jonathan David's well-placed pass, and Yazici crisply passes it into the bottom corner of Donnarumma's net to make it 3-0.

But Yazici hit four shot, all four found the target and made eight touches inside the area. Yes, he lost the ball 21 times, but creative midfielders generally do, and when it comes off for them, you get results like this.

Lille's win sends the French side top of Group H.
