Haaland has given Borussia a tactical advantage in attack

Borussia Dortmund’s bid to win a first Bundesliga crown since 2011/12 is back on track.

Erling Haaland, who joined this winter and already scored five goals in less than an hour, has made them a much more dangerous side.

We shouldn’t be too surprised by the 19-year-old and his fast start to life in Germany after his move from Austrian champions Salzburg.

He had scored eight goals in six UEFA Champions League group stage matches this season, with only Bayern Munich sharpshooter Lewandowski – on 10 – netting more.

The Norway international backed up his 20-minute hat-trick on his debut against Augsburg by finding the net twice in the 5-1 win over Cologne.

It makes you wonder how much damage he’ll do when he actually gets a run of starts. Haaland, though, has much more to offer to Dortmund than just goals.
