Haaland helped Dortmund defeat PSG

Scored: Haaland 69′, 77′ – Neymar 75′.

It only took seven matches for Erling Braut Haaland to enter Champions League history as the first player to reach the 10-goal mark.

Haaland (yellow, tackle) scored 11 goals in just seven matches for Dortmund.

The match between two teams that worship attacking football was not exciting from the beginning.

Dortmund’s trio of Jadon Sancho, Erling Braut Haaland and Thorgan Hazard stand out more than their colleagues on the other side of the front line.

Haaland, after being silent for the first 30 minutes of the match, suddenly exploded with a dribble that hit the post and a header that went out, after an assist from Sancho.

Haaland’s header missed the post in the first half.

Just a few hours before the match, Dortmund announced a four-year contract worth $27.3 million with Emre Can – who they borrowed from Juventus in the winter transfer market.

PSG plays somewhat without confidence, after three consecutive seasons of stopping in the 1/8 round of the Champions League.

When PSG showed signs of regaining the game, they had to concede a goal.

Haaland’s speed almost helped him complete the double just five minutes later.

At the most exciting time, Dortmund had to pay a heavy price with a loss at home.

Neymar equalized by kicking the ball into an empty net.

But Dortmund’s young players did not lose spirit after their opponent’s equalizer.

The pace of the match was pushed up very high in the final minutes.

The speed and ingenuity of Dortmund’s players caused PSG to receive three yellow cards in the last five minutes of the match.
