Erling Haaland's Brilliant Goal For Borussia Dortmund Against Bayern Munich Gets Slow-Mo Treatment
Erling Haaland's brilliant goal for Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich has been given the slow-mo treatment.
The Norwegian superstar raced on to a chipped throughball from Raphael Guerreiro before controlling it, rounding Manuel Neuer and slotting home.
It's a fine goal at normal speed, but when you watch the slow-motion footage, you can see just how effortless Haaland makes it all look.

Unfortunately for Haaland and company, his side were beaten 3-2 by reigning German champions Bayern.
Marco Reus gave Dortmund the lead on the stroke of half-time, but David Alaba ensured the scores were level at the break when he converted from a well-worked free-kick.
Bayern raced into a 3-1 lead after the restart thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski and Leroy Sane, before Haaland pulled one back with his superb strike seven minutes from time.

Haaland can look after himself as well. Joshua Kimmich tried to bring the striker down with a rash tackle, but actually ended up injuring himself.
Bayern held on for the win, but Haaland's stock continues to rise. He now has 11 goals in as many games for Dortmund this season.
The 20-year-old isn't happy with that, however, demanding even more from himself.
Speaking afterwards, he said: "I have to score more goals. If we don't put our chances away at this level, then we won't win.
Can't believe Haaland stayed on his feet here, and Kimmich was the one that got injured...- :flag_no: Football (@NORftbl) November 7, 2020

"[Bayern] are the best team in the world and we have to work harder to take the next step to be as good as them."
Haaland joined Dortmund in January from RB Salzburg, after rebuffing Manchester United's interest, and has cemented his spot as one of the world's most fearsome frontmen.
He reportedly has a "verbal agreement'" to leave Dortmund in 2022 and Real Madrid are "optimistic" of signing the hot-shot.
