(Borussia Dortmund – Zenit St. Petersburg 2-0) Erling Braut Haaland (20) missed the first chance, but scored on the second. No one has scored as many goals in their first ten matches of the tournament.
Haaland characteristically doubled the lead in overtime in the second half. The Norwegian stormed through after a header from Jude Bellingham and put the ball between the legs of Mikhail Kerzhakov.
Thus, the 20-year-old stands with a staggering 12 goals in ten games in the Champions League. It is a feat no one has managed before.
He has also scored in seven of eight games in the group stage so far in his career.
– It feels very good, there is not much to say. It was an important goal for me and the team, says Haaland.
Erling Braut Haaland crushes both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Argentine needed 25 games to reach twelve goals, while Cristiano Ronaldo had to wait 47 games before he had the same number of goals in the Champions League.
Before scoring, Jadon Sancho had already sent Borussia Dortmund into the lead on a penalty kick.
The Englishman got the opportunity when Thorgan Hazard was torn down in the penalty area.
Sancho sent goalkeeper Mikhail Kerzhakov one way and put the ball opposite.
Until then, Borussia Dortmund had struggled to create chances against a low and compact Zenit St. Petersburg, but initially Erling Braut Haaland was played free.
The Norwegian received a beautiful pass from Jadon Sancho, but the man who has been the safety even alone with the goalkeeper, failed to fulfill this time.
