After scoring five goals as a substitute, Erling Haaland made his starting debut in his third game for Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegian rewrote another chapter of Bundesliga history.
BVB star Lothar Emmerich was the man with the legendary “left peg.” He seems to have found a successor in Erling Haaland. The Norwegian has so far shot eight times on the opponent's goal, always with his left foot. Seven of these eight shots have found the net, which equates to a rate of 88 percent. Unbelievable!
"I feel in a good place and didn’t have any problems integrating," he said after the game: "We understand each other on the pitch, we saw that today. That is the most important thing. It was nice to play from the start. I've got to get even fitter, but that will come with each game.'
Haaland is the first player in Bundesliga history to score seven goals in his first three appearances. He also provided an assist for Marco Reus’s penalty.
However, despite his record-breaking achievements, Haaland did not manage to snatch away a record from his predecessor Paco Alcácer, who has just moved to Villarreal: the Spaniard needed only 106 minutes to score his seventh Bundesliga goal, it took Haaland 135 minutes.
But for goal number eight all things change...( br)
