scored in his second straight game for Borussia Moenchengladbach in the UEFA Champions League as it beat Sevilla, 4-2, in their Group D match. It was Gladbach's first win in the
competition and ended Sevilla’s hopes of reaching the knockout stage. Lars Stindl
scored twice before second-half goals from Johnson and Raffael
gave Gladbach the win
for five points in the group and a shot at third place in the group.
"We produced a strong performance," said Johnson, who had also scored in the 1-1 tie with Juventus. "Everyone played
to their limit."
Johnson is only the sixth American to score in the Champions League after Jovan Kirovski
, DaMarcus Beasley
, Maurice Edu
and Sacha Kljestan
