Erling Haaland scores audacious acrobatic winner as Man City come from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund

Erling Haaland continued his remarkable form for Manchester City with an audacious acrobatic winner against his former club Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Dortmund had looked on course for a surprise victory at the Etihad after England international Jude Bellingham headed them in front after 56 minutes.

But City equalised in the 80th minute, John Stones beating Dortmund goalkeeper Alexander Meyer with a superb long-range strike.


City were in front four minutes later.

Haaland, playing against Dortmund for the first time since his £51m summer move to City, somehow managed to connect with Joao Cancelo's outside-of-the-boot cross – directing an unstoppable finish past Meyer.

It was his 13th goal in just nine games for City and his 26th in 22 appearances in the Champions League.

City supporters on social media were blown away by Haaland's remarkable finish.

"The little feint movement he does before then gives him the smallest bit of space in behind to attack. He's on a different level," wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "Haaland is god."

While a third wrote: "HE'S INEVITABLE."

Victory for City sees them maintain their 100 per cent record in the Champions League this season, with two wins from two.

Pep Guardiola's side are now three points clear of Dortmund at the top of Group G, with FC Copenhagen third on one point - ahead of Sevilla on goal difference after their goalless drawn in Denmark.

Speaking after City's victory, Haaland told BT Sport: "This is what we are and this is how we have to play. I'm proud of the last 25 minutes."

He then had a cheeky dig at his City teammate and fellow goalscorer Stones, who was also up for interview duties after full-time.

"Mine was a bit better honestly," joked Haaland.

"Cancelo… a nice cross, it was a really important win."
