Erling Håland joins elite class after brace against Paris Saint-Germain

Erling Haaland was the star of the night as Borussia Dortmund picked a valuable 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at the famous Signal-Iduna Park in the first leg of the Champions League knockout phase on Tuesday night. 

The 19-year-old grabbed a sensational brace, which was another major milestone in his wonderful season so far. 

The two goals saw him become the first player ever to score for two different clubs in the same Champions League season.  

Before his January move to Germany, the Norwegian scored eight goals for RB Salzburg, even though the Austria side bowed out in the group stages.

In addition to the above, Haaland becomes the only the second teenager to score 10 Champions League goals, after Kylian Mbappé (13).

He is also the first teenager to score 10 in a single campaign in the competition.  

The teenager also joins a group of four players to score 10 goals in their first season in the European Cup/Champions League.

  • Claudio Sulser
  • Sadio Mané
  • Roberto Firmino
  • Erling Haaland 

He, however, feels he can do more, saying he needs to work harder to improve. 

"I feel like I still can do a lot better. I have to work hard to improve to play better at this level,"

He has now scored a total of 10 goals from seven matches for the German side.
