Haaland breaks all kinds of records and leads Dortmund to quarter-finals CL

Erling Haaland broke another series of Champions League records on Tuesday. The top striker of Borussia Dortmund scored two goals in the return against substitute Luuk de Jong’s Sevilla (2-2) and led his team to the quarter-finals.

Haaland, who also scored two goals in the first leg, scored ten minutes before and ten minutes after the break. The two goals against Sevilla striker Youssef En Nesyri in the last 25 minutes were not enough, as Dortmund won 2-3 in Spain three weeks ago.

Twenty-year-old Haaland is now on twenty Champions League goals in just fourteen games. Harry Kane needed 24 duels for his first 20 hits in the most important European club tournament and was the record holder.

These records are now also in the name of Haaland:

  • Most goals in the Champions League for 21st birthday (credited to Kylian Mbappé with nineteen).
  • Most goals by a Norwegian in the Champions League (was credited to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with nineteen).
  • First player to score at least two goals in four Champions League matches in a row.

Bizarre second hit for Haaland

Sevilla knew there had to be scored in the Signal Iduna Park after the defeat in their own stadium and the Spaniards started well. Haaland was therefore barely featured in the piece in the first half hour, but it was immediately hit with his first chance. The Norwegian could simply shoot in after good preparatory work by captain Marco Reus.

Shortly after the break, Haaland made it 2-0, although that record goal came in a bizarre way. The striker initially shot the ball into the goal from a difficult angle, but that goal was rejected after intervention by the VAR due to a foul by Haaland on Fernando.

However, the video referee also saw that Sevilla defender Jules Koundé had held the shirt of Haaland in the penalty area a minute earlier, giving Dortmund a penalty. Haaland’s bet was saved by Yassine Bono, but the goalkeeper moved off his line too early. Haaland got another chance and then he scored: 2-0. The attacker still angered Sevilla by cheering in Bono’s face.

De Jong was then allowed to come in for Sevilla and the Dutchman received a penalty after a few minutes from the Turkish referee Cüneyt Çakir because of a push from Emre Can. And Nesyri hit the penalty kick in the goal and made it 2-2 in the 96th minute, but it remained the evening of Haaland.
