List of UCL records Erling Haaland broke during Borussia Dortmund’s win over Sevilla

Haaland is now the first player to score more than 10 goals in first two seasons in the UEFA Champions League. He is also the first in UCL history to score more than two goals in 4 straight games.

Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has become the fastest player to score 20 goals in the history of the Champions League.

The Norwegian striker achieved this landmark feat during the 2nd of Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla round of 16 UCL clash on Tuesday (local time).

Not only this, the 20-year-old also broke the long-standing record of former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s goal tally in the UCL and became the top-scoring Norwegian in the Champions League history.

It has taken Haaland just 14 matches to score 20 goals in Champions League and thus became the quickest individual to reach that 20-goal tally in the history of the tournament.

At just 20 years and 231 days, Haaland is now the youngest player to achieve such a feat in UCL, reported Goal.com. When compared to the “GOATS” of football, it took Messi 40 games to score 20 goals in the UCL. Whereas, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 20th after 56 Champions League matches.

On the night, BVB took an early lead through Erling’s 35th minute strike to put Dortmund 4-2 up on aggregate.

In the second half, it was Haaland again who found the back of the net in the 54th minute off a perfectly dispatched penalty as the home side took full control of the tie.

Last season’s UEFA Europa League champions did, however, find a way back into the match through Youssef En-Nesyri’s brace. But it ultimately turned out to be too late for Sevilla as the full time whistle was blown with the Dortmund going through to the quarter-final with a 5-4 aggregate win on the night.
