With a brace against Club Brugge last night, Erling Haaland has gone down in Champions League history. Even this 20-year-old player has more goals in this arena than Ronaldo.
Erling Haaland shone brightly when contributing to Dortmund’s 3-0 victory over Club Brugge in the fourth match of the Champions League group stage. This victory helped the German club go a long way in the goal of passing the group stage. They are topping Group F with 9 points, 5 points ahead of 3rd place Club Brugge.
Not only that, with the double goals in this match, Erling Haaland has entered the history of the Champions League. The Norwegian striker only needs 12 matches to get 16 goals in this arena. In it, he scored 8 goals for Salzburg in the 2019/20 Champions League and 8 goals in Dortmund shirt.
This achievement is much more impressive than Messi and C. Ronaldo. To get 15 goals, Messi needs 29 games. That number of CR7 is 51 matches. There is a surprising statistic that Erling Haaland only needs 12 matches to have more goals than the legendary Ronaldo.
In the past, the former Brazilian player only got 14 goals after 40 appearances in this tournament. In addition, the Norwegian striker also became the youngest player to reach 15 goals. Mbappe did it at 20 years and 306 days and Messi hit the mark at 21 years 288 days.
Since the beginning of the season, Erling Haaland has scored 17 goals in 13 matches for Dortmund in all competitions. In particular, this striker is leading the scoring list in the Champions League with 6 goals. In the Bundesliga, he has 11 goals, just 1 goal behind Lewandowski.
The home team’s mentality became more and more comfortable and they continuously held many dangerous attacks towards Dortmund’s goal. 14 minutes into the game, Ciro Immobile almost made a double, but his shot from just outside the box was blocked.
