Day after day two years ago, the world was introduced to Erling Braut Haaland. The then 19-year-old Norwegian scored three times on behalf of Salzburg in his Champions League debut. At Genk they still have nightmares, because the Limburg club was the first victim of the Norwegian sensation. Genk lost the match 6-2.
Since then, Haaland’s numbers have been phenomenal. In the Champions League, he even scored more than he played in matches: he shook the nets 21 times in 17 matches. Also in this Champions League campaign, Haaland scored in the first group stage of Dortmund, in and against Besiktas. In the Bundesliga, the Norwegian currently has 5 goals and 4 assists in 4 games. At this rate, many goalscoring records will be broken.
