Champions League Tuesday; Five-star Erling joins elite group after City route

Since joining Manchester City, he’s either matched or broken goal-scoring records of the footballing greats in this generation and generations gone by.

Norwegian Erling Haaland scored five this evening against Leipzig, as the former Dortmund ended a mini-goal drought and helped his side win 7-0, 8-1 on aggregate.

It’s funny to think that Haaland after enjoying a hot goal-scoring streak pre-World Cup, would be somewhat measured shall we say in his goal-scoring post-World Cup.

Erling Haaland’s five-goal burst saw the Norwegian grab his 30th Champions League goal in just 25 games.

Man City forward Haaland has achieved his latest goal-scoring feat having played 60 Games less than Wayne Rooney.

Louis Adriano of Shakhtar, Lionel Messi of Barcelona and Ronaldo of Real Madrid are the only players to score five goals in a Champions League game.

This emphatic win puts City into the quarter-finals after Pep’s men put on a performance that would have put the rest of Europe on notice. Last year a lack of goals in the big games, but this evening they had no such issue.
They will join Inter Milan who won 1-0 in aggregate after a 0-0 draw in Portugal.

Inter won the first leg 1-0 at the San Siro and are in the quarters for the first time since 2011.

See you tomorrow.
