Erling Haaland's Heat Map Vs Hoffenheim Was Embarrassing

Erling Haaland's Heat Map Vs Hoffenheim Was Embarrassing

Erling Haaland had a day to forget on Saturday, as Borussia Dortmund were battered by Hoffenheim, and his heat map for the day made for bleak reading.

It's been an incredible season for Haaland, first for Red Bull Salzburg and then for Dortmund, since his high profile move in January, and he finished on 44 goals in all competitions for his two clubs.

However on the final day of the season he was overshadowed by Andrej Kramaric, as the former Leicester City striker scored all the goals in Hoffenheim's 4-0 win.

Haaland spent so much of his time kicking off and not too much time doing anything else that his heat map for the match is pretty embarrassing.

In the match Dortmund, who had nothing to play for having seen Bayern Munich capture their eighth title in-a-row two weeks ago, dominated possession with 58% of the ball.

However they didn't turn that into chances as Hoffenheim had 13 shots to the hosts six, with eight on target to Dortmund's four, and it clearly showed in the result.

It was Kramaric who proved the difference with a Haalandesque four goals in just six shots to win the game and help his team finish the season sixth.

Haaland did score the first goal back when the Bundesliga restarted last month but the 19-year-old didn't quite keep up his scary goalscoring for the rest of the season.

He only scored three goals, over two games, in the final six matches of the season, although you can't expect the teenager to score every week.

He and his teammates will hope that once again they can mount a challenge to stop Bayern dominating Germany for a ninth year, although the chances look slim.

If they lose Jadon Sancho to a big money move than Haaland would have even more to do, he'll need less days like the one against Hoffenheim.
