- Erling Haaland scored two goals in Dortmund’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla in the Champions league
- The Bundesliga giants are now through to the quarter-final of this season’s tournament
- Haaland’s brace takes his tally to 20 goals in Champions League in just 14 appearances
Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has set new Champions league record following his brace in their 2-2 draw with Spanish side Sevilla.
Dortmund dumped the La Liga outfit out of the tournament after the German side won 5-4 on aggregates.
The Bundesliga outfit are now through to the quarter-final of the competition, their first in four years and all thanks to main man Haaland.
The 20-year-old is now the quickest a player has ever reached 20 goals in the competition, and in 10 fewer appearances than the previous record holder Harry Kane.
Spurs striker Kane reached such feat after 24 matches while Italian legend Allessandro Del Piero reached the 20 goal mark in 26 games.
Former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nisteltooy grabbed his 20th Champions League goal in his 27th appearance while Filipo Inzaghi reached such feat after 28 games.
Haaland also received all the accolades following his brace and an assist in their win over Spanish side Sevilla in the first leg.
And Manchester United and Real Madrid are reportedly interested in the Borussia Dortmund striker, but reports have it that the striker could end up joining reigning Premier League champions Liverpool.
He came to limelight during his stint with German side RB Salzburg before his move to his present club Dortmund in January.
United are still reportedly interested in getting the player as well as Real Madrid, but RB Salsburg sporting director Cristoph Freund has hinted that the forward will likely join Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that desperate Liverpool fans have created a GoFundMe accound to raise funds for the possible signing of Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.
Only £65 donation has been received so far which is no way near the targeted world-record £250 million fee for the Frenchman.
Liverpool have continued to struggle in front of goal having only managed one at Anfield in their last six home matches.
Consequently, they need a striker like Mbappe who scored a hat-trick at the Camp Nou in the Champions League.
