Erling Haaland makes history

At 19 years and 212 days, Haaland is the second youngest player to reach 10 goals in the Champions League, behind PSG star Kylian Mbappe, who did so at the age of 18 years and 360 days.


The striker took his tally to 10 goals in just seven Champions League appearances this season with a stunning eight-minute brace, reaching the mark four games quicker than any other player in the competition's history.


Haaland – making his Champions League bow for Dortmund following a January switch from Salzburg – scored twice in the second half of the team's 2-1 win over PSG in the opening leg of the last-16 tie.



Haaland has scored 11 goals in his first seven games in all competitions for Dortmund. No other player from a Bundesliga side has ever achieved that feat.


He scored a hat-trick on his Champions League debut for Salzburg against Genk on September 17, becoming the first teenager to score more than once on his maiden appearance in the competition.


Erling Haaland went on to become only the third player, after Alessandro Del Piero and Diego Costa, to score in his first five matches in the competition when he grabbed another goal against Genk on November 27.
