Erling Haaland pulled off a sensational Cristiano Ronaldo-esque leap and header to beat a helpless Sascha Burchert in Borussia Dortmund’s 3-0 win on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old Norwegian striker fired Dortmund into the lead in the first half at the Westfalenstadion against Greuther Furth.


Haaland completed his brace in the 82nd minute with a sublime header after being picked out by Julian Brandt from a free-kick.

Brandt crossed in a superb ball to find Dortmund teammate Haaland waiting inside of the box.

Haaland towered over Furth defender Maximilian Bauer and turned his header past Burchert into the bottom right corner of the net.

“He’s the Norwegian beast,” one fan tweeted.

Someone else posted: “[Manchester United], give Dortmund a blank cheque and pay him what he wants.”

A third added: “If Haaland starts scoring a lot in the air, then he might pull away from [Kylian] Mbappe…”

While a fourth wrote: “The way he’s going he will bag 1,000 goals.”

Donyell Malen added Dortmund’s third late on to seal three important points for Marco Rose’s men.

Dortmund remain in second place and still have a fighting chance in the Bundesliga title race, despite trailing league leaders Bayern Munich by six points.

Rose’s side will return to Bundesliga action on Saturday with a trip to the Olympiastadion Berlin for their clash with Hertha Berlin.
