A real scoring machine, the Norwegian striker never ceases to impress. The person took advantage of the match against Bruges in the Champions League to enter even more into history.
But what are the limits of Erling Braut Haaland? None if we refer to the performances of the striker of Borussia Dortmund. Elected Golden Boy last weekend, the Norwegian striker never seems satisfied, on the contrary. After a quadrupled in the Bundesliga against Schalke 04, the main protagonist was impatient at the idea of breaking down again, this time in the Champions League against Brugge.
From the 18th minute, the young man aged 20 took advantage of an offering from Sancho to deceive Simon Mignolet from the left. More than yet another goal in his collection, the BVB striker signed the fifteenth achievement of his Champions League career (8 with Salzburg, 7 with Dortmund). With such a total, Haaland thus becomes the fastest player to reach this figure, and this in just twelve games played in the most prestigious of European competitions!
Erling Braut Haaland sets a new record
The former Salzburg player beats Ruud van Nistelrooy and Roberto Soldado, who needed 19 games to achieve such a result. But as often, Erling Braut Haaland did not stop there and took the opportunity to offer himself a double at the hour of play. A double which allows the Norwegian striker to present an incredible record: seventeen goals in thirteen matches in all competitions since the start of the season.
Statistics that will remain, no matter what, set in stone. And Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki was not mistaken at the end of the match against Bruges. “Erling is simply exceptional in attack, he makes things easier for us. “ Let it be said, with a Haaland at the top of his game, Dortmund can touch the summits this season …
