Erling Braut Haaland has, by any measurable parameter, an absolutely monstrous season in the Bundesliga already.
This, despite having played only five games in the league and starting just two of them.
During this time, he has already scored a whopping eight goals, including a hat-trick on his club debut for Borussia Dortmund.
Yesterday, he decided to continue this rich vein of form in the Champions League, scoring a magnificent brace as Dortmund got away with a 2-1 victory at home to Paris St Germain.
Linking up with another prodigious talent, English winger Jadon Sancho, the Norwegian lad made lightning fast runs and counter attacks into the box, including one that nearly broke the 60m record.
Of his two goals, however, the second one, coming on the heels of a Neymar equaliser, was made of special stuff.
Having received a pinpoint pass from teammate Giovanni Reyna, Haaland sprinted across from about twenty yards out, deftly avoiding a defender in the process.
As soon as he reached the edge of the box, not caring for the incoming slide tackle from the opposition, he let the ball fly from his powerful left foot, unleashing a shot no goalkeeper could hope to stop.
In fact, the resulting goal bounced off the net so hard that it made a thunderous sound loud enough to be caught on the broadcaster microphones.
This GOAL is the Real Deal! The sound of the Net though— Babalola E Temitope (@B_E_T) February 18, 2020
Errling Haaland is a BEAST!
While almost no one is left in any doubt that the boy is going to go on to be a superstar in his own right, with the way he’s started, Dortmund fans find it difficult to believe that he isn’t already one.
