Erling Haaland Adds Sevilla To His List Of Champions League Victims
Erling Haaland scored his 17th and 18th goals in his 13th Champions League appearance on Wednesday night, to continue his run of scoring against every team.
Haaland only made his debut in Europe's top club competition in September 2019, scoring a hat-trick against Genk, going on to become the first teenager to score in all three of his opening games in the competition.
Since then he has gone from strength to strength, and not slowed down at all since moving to Borussia Dortmund in January 2020.
On Wednesday night the Bundesliga side came up against Sevilla in the last 16 of the first leg, but went behind after just seven minutes.
The visitors equalised after 19 minutes and Haaland made sure his run of scoring against every opposition side he's faced in the Champions League continued just eight minute later.

Last season Haaland, in his debut season in the Champions League, having made the huge step up to sign from Red Bull Salzburg, scored in all five of the first group games and was only stopped by champions Liverpool from making it all six group games.
He then moved to Dortmund where he scored against PSG in the first leg of the last 16, before they were knocked out.
His strike on Wednesday, paired with Mahmoud Dahoud's thunderbolt, means it's likely the Germans will get at least one round further this season
Before the half was up Haaland added yet another goal to his tally to mean he levelled Robert Lewandowski on 18 goals scored since he made his debut in the competition, more than anyone else.
