Haaland reaches another milestone in the Bundesliga

Erling Haaland broke the 20-goal mark in the Bundesliga this season by scoring twice in Borussia Dortmund’s 2-2 draw with Koln on Saturday.

The 20-year-old has now scored 21 goals in 21 matches in the Bundesliga this campaign and is only second to Robert Lewandowski in Germany’s scoring charts.

Away from the Bundesliga, Haaland has also become the fastest player in history to hit 20 Champions League goals this month.

The Norwegian has scored 20 goals in 14 games in the competition, compared to Lionel Messi’s 40 games and Cristiano Ronaldo’s 56 games to reach the same landmark.

For a closer comparison, Harry Kane held the previous record, scoring 20 goals in 24 Champions League appearances.

Aside from the numbers, you just have to watch one of Haaland’s games to understand the hype that surrounds him.

His first goal against Koln on Saturday was a quite brilliant show of control, poise and precision, collecting Emre Can’s long ball before shrugging off the defender and beating Timo Horn in goal.

Over the international break, Haaland may well be able to fill his boots further, with Norway up against Gibraltar, Turkey and Montenegro in World Cup qualifiers.
