- His two goals made him score more goals in his thriving career
- Haaland became the fastest player ever to score 10 Champions League goals
- The Norwegian sensation brought its count for the season to a scandalous 37 goals
Erling Haaland cannot seem to be on the field right now without breaking more goal records.
Haaland stabbed a rebound in the 69th minute to give Dortmund the lead before Neymar moments later. However, it was Haaland who had the last laugh and hit a powerful shot in the top corner of distance to win it.
Two more goals means that Haaland has now scored 10 Champions League goals in just seven games, reaching four games faster than all other players in the history of the competition.
He only became the fifth man to reach 10 goals in his debut season in the Champions League, joining Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Claudio Sulser and Just Fontaine to achieve the achievement.
The Norwegian is also only the second player to score 10 Champions League goals as a teenager after Kylian Mbappe, are on component on Tuesday night, and the first to do so in a single European campaign.
Yet another support continues its ridiculous form for the purpose since joining Dortmund in January from Red Bull Salzburg.
Haaland has now scored 10 goals in seven games for Dortmund, which are the most players in the top five in Europe since his debut last month.
He also became the first Dortmund player to ever score during his debut in the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League.
I still need to improve, keep working &, said Haaland completely
& # 39; I want to go far in the Champions League. With the second goal I enjoyed the moment. & # 39;

Dortmund bounced spectacularly from two consecutive defeats in the German Cup and competition as last week, full of confidence before Tuesday Champions League Round of 16 first stage home to Paris Saint-Germain .
Defender Lukasz Piszczek found room to drill home for the lead in the 33rd minute, with the hosts remaining patient against a hard-working Eintracht.Borussia Dortmund scored three second half goals when they scored Eintracht FrankfurtcrushedJadon Sancho latch on a pinpoint Axel Witsel pass to score with a fine finishErling Haaland tapped home four minutes later for his eighth goal in his fifth league g love "class =" blkBorder img-share "/>
But the visitors, who had enjoyed their best start of a year in half a century with three wins from four games, only battled for 45 minutes and threw in the towel after the restart.
Jadon Sancho grabbed a pinpoint Axel Witsel pass to score with a nice finish in the 50th and Erling Haaland tapped home four minutes later for his eighth goal in his fifth league game, a record from the Bundesliga.
With defense of the Eintracht in disorder, Raphael Guerreiro, who hit the post with a free kick in the first half, made it back in the 74th with a powerful shot from 20 meters after a sloppy shot clearance.
Dortmund suffered a shock 3-2 German Cup defeat against Werder Bremen 10 days ago before losing 4-3 to Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.
& # 39; It was extremely important to stay clean today, & # 39; Dortmund said to defend Mats Hummels. & # 39; We didn't give them many opportunities either. This was not a clean sheet for the defense, but for the entire team. & # 39;

Erling Haaland strikes & # 39; comical & # 39; talk about him demanding a big wage to join Borussia Dortmund after smothering Manchester United in January
- Erling Haaland insists he didn't demand a huge wage from Borussia Dortmund
- The striker has summoned reports that he insisted on £ 6.65ma-year & # 39; comical & # 39;
- He also explained why he chose to refuse Manchester United & # 39; s interest
United was considered a favorite to sign the former RB Leipzig striker, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who flew to the teenager and was last connected as a Molde manager.
However, the 19-year-old decided to smuggle United and join Lucien Favre at £ 17 million. There were reports suggesting that the Norwegian intended to earn a salary of £ 6.65 million, but Haaland insists.Erling Haaland insisted that he did not demand a huge wage from Borussia DortmundThe striker insists that he chose Dortmund over Manchester United because they were the best fitThe Norweigan chose to close his former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to join the German side
& # 39; It's not my focus, whatever, & # 39; told Haaland ] Viasport .
& # 39; It would be a bit comical if I got that label. All the people closest to me know that I am not. It was really comical. & # 39;

His decision to refuse Manchester United seems to be justified, making United and Solskjaer bitter.
The Old Trafford side blamed the player agent, Mino Raiola, and representatives for their failed negotiations.
Raiola rejected the claims and insisted that Haaland just chose & # 39; a different path & # 39 ;, an idea that the Norwegian supported.
& # 39; When the season was over, my father and I started talking, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; At that time he did not say anything about Dortmund and then I asked him: & # 39; what about this club? & # 39; He said "we shall see".Haaland made a lightning start in his Dormtund career and scored eight goals in five games
& suddenly it became an option and then I always felt myself. The process was to find the best possible club for me.
& # 39; Solskjaer has been very important for me to get to where I am now, but we concluded that Dortmund was what I felt best about, and that is why it became Dortmund. & # 39;
Even the elite clubs of the world always have an eye for a bargain and activating a release clause is very popular at the moment.
Takumi Minamino offered Liverpool incredible value from RB Salzburg for £ 7.25 million and Erling Braut Haaland left the same club for £ 18 million in January.
This summer, lots of great deals will be made through buyout clauses, so Sportsmail has viewed 10 stars that may be in action for a bargain.
1. Erling Braut Haaland – £ 63m
In the world of exorbitant transfer costs, £ 63m seems to be a wink for one of the outstanding young strikers in Europe.
Haaland may have just joined Borussia Dortmund for only £ 17 million, but clearly his agent Mino Raiola had one eye on the future when inserting that release clause.
Those who wondered if the Norwegian could make the move from Salzburg will certainly have changed their minds after the blistering start he brought to life in the Bundesliga – eight goals in just four games and he still has to play 90 minutes.Erling Braut Haaland is incredible but has a release clause of only £ 63 million
2. Timo Werner – £ 51m
It seems inevitable that the German international will leave RB Leipzig this summer. The team is in the race for the title, but their front man has drawn jealous glances from some of the elite clubs in Europe.
He is lightning fast, has scored a number of absolute riders and the consistency in his finish has increased a lot in the last few months.
Liverpool and Chelsea are both connected. At £ 51m for a man with 20 goals in 20 competitions this season, there is a bargain.Timo Werner probably leaves Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in the summer for £ 51m
3. Jack Grealish – £ 45m
In a season in which Aston Villa fights to survive in the Premier League, Grealish has ultimately improved its reputation.
There will be a long line of clubs that want their signature in the summer and given the often inflated costs for English players, £ 45m seems like a cut for the attacking midfielder.
There was the impression in some circles that Grealish is a glamor player for this season, but he has been relentless in his quest and that work pace is another reason why his suitors will be so enthusiastic.Jack Grealish has been excellent for Aston Villa, but is another man who probably goes further
4. Marc Roca – £ 33.8 m
The 23-year-old central midfielder stood on the radar of Bayern Munich in the summer and they could regain their interest in the off season.
The disadvantage is that he plays in the team that is rooted in the bottom of LaLiga, £ 33.8 million suddenly doesn't seem as tasty as a prospect.
He recently played in a 2-2 draw with Barcelona and is said to be of interest to both the Catalan side and Real Madrid. When Espanyol goes down, it seems inevitable that Roca will continue.Marc Roca has a pretty hefty release clause but is rated very high in LaLiga
5. Unai Nunez – £ 25.5m
Nunez is the newest star coming from the Athletic Bilbao production line. The promising 23-year-old has already been covered by Spain and will hope to follow in the footsteps of Aymeric Laporte and Kepa Arrizabalaga.
He is physically strong at more than 1 meter, likes to put his body on the line, but also has tactical intelligence about him.
As with many Spanish defenders, he is able to hit the ball so a cunning acquisition would be.Unai Nunez (right) everything seems to have the attributes to get to elite level to defend
6. Lorenzo Pellegrini – £ 25m
The midfielder of the Roma averaged this season every two games and is a mainstay.
The 23-year-old Italian is enormously experienced for his age and will be a great purchase if the main club fails to negotiate a new deal with him. Paulo Fonseca's side plays a smooth attack game and Pellegrini is trusted as the primary creative force.
He previously played in a box-to-box role, so it would offer much versatility if a team came in for him.Lorenzo Pellegrini (left) would be a bargain as a team pick him up for £ 25 million
7. Hwang Hee-chan – £ 20m
Wolves were connected to the South Korean in January but did not pull the trigger during a move.
Salzburg saw Haaland and Minamino being caught by Dortmund and Liverpool, respectively, so refused to let another important player leave. The talented 24-year-old seems ready for his next step and £ 20m seems solid value.
His production is impressive, with six goals and seven assists in 14 Austrian league matches in addition to his three goals in the Champions League group stage.Hwang Hee-chan is another talented player who is from the RB Salzburg production line comes
8. Chimy Avila – £ 20m
The Osasuna attacker is a big hit this season with nine goals in 20 games.
Unfortunately, he has been excluded from a knee injury for the remainder of the campaign, so there will be some concern from clubs interested in activating his £ 20 million clause.
The combative Argentinian is an all-action striker and never gives the defense a moment of peace. At the age of 25 his best years are ahead of him, so it may be worth taking a gamble for the former San Lorenzo man.Chimy Avila is one of the surprise packages in LaLiga in front for Osasuna
9. Rui Silva – £ 12.7 m
The 21-year-old goalkeeper of Granada has so far been an important reason for the impressive season of the newly promoted party.
They are 10th in LaLiga and the 25-year-old has eight clean sheets to his name.
He has a lot of experience playing more than 50 teams for Nacional de Madeira in Portugal and representing Portugal by the age categories is considered a future international for European champions.Granada goalkeeper Rui Silva is a safe pair of hands and can be refurbished in the summer
10. Adolfo Gaich – £ 11.5 million
It may be too early for a Premier League move for 20-year-old Argentine, but people if Schalke and Villarreal are interested.
Gaich already has an international cap and has four goals in nine appearances to his name for San Lorenzo so far this season.
If he can continue at that rate, £ 11.5 million is a risk worth taking for a man whose value can rise in the coming years. Despite its age, it is well built and can hold the ball up and offer a target threat.Adolfo Gaich (left) is a dominant attacker and could be an absolute snipe for only £ 11.5 million
THE HIGHEST RELEASE CLAUSULES
1. Karim Benzema £ 846.7m
2.Antoine Griezmann £ 677.2m
3. Luka Modric £ 634.9m
4. Brahim Diaz £ 634.9m
5 Lionel Messi £ 592.5m
6. Vinicius Jnr £ 592.5m

Fear of him? I don't know him & # 39 ;: PSG defender Thomas Meunier not afraid of the prospect of a free score by Erling Haaland in the Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund
- Paris Saint- Germain and Borussia Dortmund set for Champions League meeting
- Prospect of free-scoring striker Erling Haaland can scare PSG defense
- Haaland has since his arrival scored seven goals in three games in Germany
- But PSG defends Thomas Meunier insists they are not afraid of the Norwegian
Two of the most productive teams in Europe are set to meet each other in the final 16 of the tournament, with the first leg at the Westfalenstadion on February 18 and the return to Paris on March 11.
The Norwegian striker Haaland, 19, scored seven times in only three games since signing for Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg during the January transfer window.Erling Haaland has been excellent since he came to Borussia Dortmund and scored seven timesThe Norwegian is an instant hit with the & # 39; Yellow Wall & # 39; become after his goals exploits
And impressed by Salzburg in the group stage of the Champions League, Haaland will lick his lips at the prospect of adopting PSG in what a classic two-legged tie promises to be .
But the Belgian defender Meunier is not afraid of Haaland, since PSG wants to reach the quarterfinals after three consecutive outputs in the final phase 16.
& # 39; Fear of him? I don't know him, especially, & Meunier said after PSG's 2-1 win over Nantes.
& # 39; He has very good grades, which underlines the Dortmund score and a huge number of goals, but they are also a team that awards many goals.Belgian defender Thomas Meunier insists that Paris Saint-Germain is not afraid is for HaalandPSG manager Thomas Tuchel stands for its old side in the Champions League final-16
& # 39; On paper, PSG can beat it. It is up to us to ensure that we qualify. & # 39;
PSG manager Thomas Tuchel may be able to offer some insight into the club he left in the summer of 2017 before arriving at PSG a year later.
Dortmund is currently third in the Bundesliga table, only three points from the top, while traveling to Bayer Leverkusen next Saturday.
PSG, which is clear 12 points at the top of Ligue 1, host Lyon on Sunday evening.
The hour is coming, the man is coming. On the biggest occasion of the NFL season and the biggest phase of all, a superstar in the form of Patrick Mahomes was born.
The 24-year-old quarterback made a stunning seven-seven-minute turn to inspire Kansas City to win a 31-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers and lead them to Super Bowl glory. With the biggest prize that has already been won, Mahomes now seems ready to dominate the NFL for the next decade.

Football – Erling Haaland
There was a point this season where there were still question marks around Erling Haaland. Of course he threw goals in the Champions League, but he was only testing himself in the Austrian Bundesliga. He has since moved to Borussia Dortmund, scoring seven goals in just 133 minutes and actually proved that all doubts were utter nonsense.
It only took him 34 minutes to score a hat trick on his debut. He is a unique talent. Haaland is strong but likes to run away from the last defender. He has the technical capacity of a much smaller man, partly because he was small until he was a teenager when he experienced a sudden spurt of growth. Above all, he is addicted to goals and always pursues his next hit.
The 19-year-old is clearly a generation talent.
By Amitai WinehouseErling Haaland is a target machine and has made an incredible start to life in Dortmund
Cricket – Prithvi Shaw
When it comes to finding The next big thing in world cricket, you can be pretty sure that India is a safe bet. The Indian Premier League has become a hotbed for exciting young talent, with a seemingly endless conveyor belt of free batters capable of shooting shots at every part of the ground.
But no one has made as explosive a start as 5ft 4in 20-year-old Prithvi Shaw, and he has been racing for almost two years now. Virat Kohli – and there can be no bigger judge in world cricket at the moment – is a fan and India coach Ravi Shastri said: “There is a little Sachin [Tendulkar]a little Viru [Sehwag] in him – and when he also runs a little Lara & # 39 ;. No pressure then.
Of 20 first class competitions, he has an average of 62, with an amazing success rate of 81 with nine hundred. He made two test appearances for India against the West Indies in 2018, scoring a ton and a half to an average of 119 at a success rate of 94. He was named the man of the series
Since his first fame when he was in Having reached a record of 546 out of 330 balls at cricket in Indian schools in 2013, he has risen to meet every challenge. Now he is going to work in the ODI series in New Zealand. Watch out for more pyrotechnics.
By James DuttonGreat things become expected from 5ft 4in Indian batsman Prithvi Shaw in the coming years
Golf – Viktor Hovland
Opposite the pond seems to be a production line of gigantic, fully American beefcakes that the & # 39 ; Baba Booey & # 39; boys have shouted, Cameron Champ, Collin Morikawa and Matt Wolff to name just three. But it is a European developed by the American college system that, along with the current world of Spain No. 3 Jon Rahm, looks best to dominate golf like Tiger Woods and, ultimately, Rory McIlroy fades with age.
Erik Hovland has a swing that you will not soon forget – his standard swing is pure poetry in motion, but it is also known that he pauses at the top, starts his downswing, stops, re-locks and then unleashes with enormous power.
The 22-year-old Noor was the low amateur in last year's Masters and then placed a new lowest 72-hole score from an amateur in the US Open, breaking the previous record, in the hands of none other then Jack Nicklaus since 1960. Not satisfied with that, immediately after becoming a professional, he then broke the PGA Tour record of consecutive rounds in the 60s, with 19 consecutive rounds of scores below 70.
One word: wow.
By Chris CutmoreViktor Hovland & # 39; s swing is something to see and it looks best to dominate golf alongside
Rugby Union – Louis Rees-Zammit
The Gloucester speed star is widely known as a teenage sensation in the world of rugby, with the recently 19-year-old now part of the Wales senior team following a call to their Six Nations squadron.
He now deserves praise, right and in the middle with Sportsmail & # 39; s Sir Clive Woodward tipping Rees-Zammit a success for current holders because he & # 39; serious wheels & # 39; and & # 39; is older than his years & # 39 ;.
The 6ft 3-in-starlet, which received the new George North, has captured the Premiership this season and scored five tries for Gloucester to make its way into the Wayne Pivac team.
Gloucester moved in January to tie their new wing to a new long-term deal with Rees-Zammit in their history books as the youngest club premier ever player, youngest player ever in a European competition and the youngest player ever to score a hat trick for Premiership.
Rees-Zammit, who qualified to play for England but chose to represent his native Wales, was called the premiership Player of the month for December 2019 – again showing his rise to the top on his young age.

Boxing – Daniel Dubois
He was anointed until an emerging king by Tyson Fury, put together one of the fiercest knockout reels in the heavyweight division and is the favorite to beat Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce in his next fight. It now seems a good time to remind you that Daniel Dubois is only 22 years old.
Dubois switched to the paid lines only two years ago, but is already becoming a household name on these coasts. There is nothing brash about this young man; you wouldn't have heard about him for his one-liners or trash, he talks in the ring. With the rough, explosive power that he possesses, there is little need to sell.
When Dubois fights, you can expect a devastating finish. He has destroyed every man who has been shot before him with 13 of his 14 victories in the distance. He climbs the heavyweight ladder faster than most expected and looks at a collision course with Anthony Joshua. And with a straightforward business attitude and few interests away from the ring to distract him from the prize, Dubois seems a safe bet to take the baton and to carry the flag for Great Britain in the heavyweight division for the next decade .
By Jordan SewardDaniel Dubois produced a devastating knockout of Kyotaro Fujimoto in his last outing
F1 – Charles Leclerc
All eyes on the future of Formula 1 seem to be focused on the extremely talented Max Verstappen but Charles is bubbling beneath the surface of Leclerc, who is just as capable of dominating the next decade. [1 9459003]
Ferrari was a relative mess after their non-existent title fight last time, but Leclerc still made an impression to achieve his first two F1 wins. This included Ferrari & # 39; s first in the Italian Grand Prix since 2010, when under extreme pressure from a partisan Tifosi and a threatening attack by Lewis Hamilton he made a stunning defensive ride to keep the world champion at bay.
Leclerc outperformed even better and his four-time world champion teammate Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari have shown their confidence in the gifted Monegasque by binding him to a deal until 2024.
There are still fools mistakes in the 22-year-old and he also lacks a little maturity, but these were things that had plagued Hamilton & # 39; s early years and the Brit is about to become the greatest F1 driver of all time.
By Daniel RipleyThe extremely talented Charles Leclerc won Ferrari & # 39; s first Italian Grand Prix since 2010
Tennis – Coco Gauff
& # 39; Coco Mania & # 39; is just as contagious today as everything else in sports. Gauff broke out last summer with a surprising victory over Venus Williams in Wimbledon and showed signs of wilting under the bright lights that now follow her everywhere she goes.
Not running until March 16, Gauff & # 39; s ceiling should be enough to scare the rest of the WTA Tour. Her service is thunderous, and although she remains a prodigy at the start of her professional career, she seems to have all the attributes to become an unwavering force in women's tennis.
Her victory over defending champion and former world No. 1 Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open – lost to her months before at the US Open and overcome by emotion – shows how she can quickly adapt to combine it with the very best. At both Wimbledon and the Australian Open she was eliminated by the final winners in Simona Halep and Sofia Kenin respectively.
Still a teenager, but as an experienced professional, Gauff will never be underestimated by her colleagues and with new champions in the ladies game, Gauff seems best placed to take control.
By Nathan SaltCoco Gauff has all the attributes to become an unwavering force in women's tennis at 15
Athletics – Noah Lyles
The Olympic Games in Tokyo will be the first play for some time with his from his superstar – Usain Bolt. However, 22-year-old Noah Lyles could be the man to light the circuit and become the face of the sport in the next decade.
The American broke the record of 200 meters in Paris last year and is praised as the next sensation. Lyles is aiming for Olympic gold this summer after winning gold in the 200 meters at the World Championships in Doha.
Lyles has the character and personality to create a new story in athletics – he can do back-flips, was a model at Paris Fashion Week and wants to release a rap album. He does not want to be compared to the legendary Bolt, but instead to think of his own way. & # 39; It's always the same, isn't it? & # 39; he said. & # 39; Why do I have to be next? People have to do better than asking for it every time. Me? I am the current Noah Lyles. & # 39;

MMA – Zabit Magomedsharipov
Zabit Magomedsharipov is a mouthful to pronounce and a handful in the octagon . He is the No. 3 ranked featherweight in the UFC and all indications are that the Russian is a special talent.
He is a tall, slender hunter with a deadly game on the ground and a remarkable matrix-like timing on his feet. In six UFC fights, Zabit has won $ 200,000 in bonuses, two for the night's performance and two for the night's fight.
He won 14 fights on the spider from Dagestan, the same fighting hotbed that Khabib Nurmagomedov produced, and his respected coach Mark Henry thinks he would sweep the floor with Conor McGregor.
Zabit starts his prime at 28 and while MMA fans know him, the next decade can see him becoming an international star.
By Will GriffeeZabit Magomedsharipov has won 14 fights in the field of spin and is just starting its first years
Basketball – Zion Williamson
The future of basketball is in big hands with people like Luka Doncic, Ja Morant and Trae Young are ready for glittering careers. However, no one has the advantage of Zion Williamson.
The fanfare for the 19-year-old before he even reached the NBA was huge because of his talent level that was shown at collegiate level for Duke. Two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant greeted him as & # 39; an athlete of a generation & # 39; before he even played professionally.
A knee injury stopped his introduction to the NBA but, now fit, he has shown the world has all its capabilities. On his debut, he scored 17 straight points for the New Orleans Pelicans in a four-minute period in the fourth quarter.
The power forward averages 19.6 points, eight rebounds and 2.1 aids in the seven games he has played since then – with his opponents who endorsed him after a long career after the game.
& # 39; He will be a very good player for the coming years, & # 39; ruled MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo after facing him with the Milwaukee Bucks. & # 39; He helps the team; he competes as hard as possible. He just has to stay healthy and he has a bright future. & # 39;
When he reaches his expectations, Williamson will dominate the NBA for a long time.

& # 39; I was like a little boy (when I spoke to Mino Raiola to confirm the deal on Christmas Eve).Haaland recognizes Dortmund fans during the match against Union Berlin
& # 39; This combination of robustness, quality of workmanship, good technology and its speed makes Erling special.
& # 39; In our first conversations there was already a positive atmosphere and we both felt good. Erling and BVB – it fits 100 percent.
