(Club Brugge – Borussia Dortmund 0-3) Erling Braut Haaland (20) simply loves to play Champions League football. On Wednesday night, the Norwegian goal machine scored its 13th and 14th in the tournament.
Now he has as many goals in the world’s most generous club tournament as, for example, the Brazilian legend Ronaldo, as well as his compatriot, the cult hero Adriano.
– It was a good night and three important points, Haaland answers in a characteristic and barely visible way in an interview shown on TV 2 after the match.
No one has scored as many goals in as few games as Haaland has done in the Champions League. 14 goals in eleven games is the final score for the Norwegian.
Now he has scored in all matches in the 20/21 edition of the tournament:
, then in – and Wednesday against Club Brugge. He tops the top scorer list along with Liverpool’s Diogo Jota, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Juventus’ Alvaro Morata.
All of them have four goals so far.
“We are not going to slow him down, do not worry,” Sebastian Kehl told Sky.
He is a former Dortmund captain and now sits in the club management.
But there was no new Champions League hat trick on the Norwegian. Haaland was replaced as a two-goal scorer after 85 minutes as Borussia Dortmund will already face Bayern Munich on Saturday.
Hansi Flick & co. followed enough from Munich – and got to see a goal-hungry Erling Braut Haaland.
