So if E from Sheet1 = D from Sheet 2, on Sheet 2 column C you want to have a value

But which value do you want to have there?

If E from Sheet1 is found in column D on Sheet2, then it returns C from Sheet2, otherwise blank

The formula is

=iferror(if(match(E2,Sheet2!\$D:\$D,0)<>"",index(Sheet2!\$C:\$C,match(E2,Sheet2!\$D:\$D,0))),"")
