The five players to score 10 goals in their first season in the Champions League

Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland continues breaking records both in the Bundesliga and in Europe. 

He was at his devastating best on Tuesday night as the German side beat PSG 2-1 in the first leg of the Champions League knockout phase to boost their chances of making it to the quarterfinals. 

The teenager's brace was all the Black and Yellow needed, and it saw him join an elite group of players who left their mark in Europe. 

He became only the fifth player to score 10 goals in their first season in the European Cup/Champions League, having scored eight in the group stages while playing for Austrian side RB Salzburg.

Who are the other three?

Just Fontaine - 10

The Frenchman had a long career both as a player and manager, achieving the feat while playing for Reims in the European Cup during the 1958/59 season. 

Claudio Sulser - 11 

The Switzerland international managed to score 11 goals for the Grasshopper Club Zurich during the 1978/79 season. 

Sadio Mané (10) 

The Liverpool forward scored in the final against Real Madrid as Liverpool lost, joining Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino as Liverpool made history.

Roberto Firmino (10)

Just like his teammate, the Brazilian scored 10 but could not help the Reds lift the title as Liverpool became the first team in Europe to have three players reach double figures in a single European season.
