Erling Haaland Scores Two More Goals In His First Borussia Dortmund Start
Erling Haaland scored his sixth and seventh goals in just three games at Borussia Dortmund, in his first start to the club, as they won 5-0 against Union Berlin.
Haaland moved to Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg earlier this month, after a hugely impressive first half of the season in Austria, and has hit the ground running.
He scored a hat-trick in 20 minutes on his debut to help overturn a 3-1 deficit to win 5-3, then scored a brace in 10 minutes in a 5-0 win over Cologne in his second game.
On Saturday he got his first start against Union and he scored two more goals to take his record to seven goals in just 136 minutes of football, a goal in every 19 minutes.

The 19-year-old earned his move to the Bundesliga after scoring 16 goals in 14 games in Austria for Red Bull and adding another eight goals in six games in the Champions League, including scoring in the first five group games.
He was wanted by many of Europe's biggest sides, including Manchester United, but chose to move to Lucian Favre's side for just €20 million.
The move to Germany includes a €75 million release clause in his contract, that can't be activated this summer, and at this rate that would be a bargain when someone can activate it.
Haaland was clearly Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's number one attacking target and after missing out on his fellow Norwegian it looked like the United boss would do without adding to his strike force in January.
Plans changed with Marcus Rashford's injury but even then the club left things late when they attempted to sign Joshua King on deadline day.
In the end they ended up with a loan move for Odion Ighalo and watching Haaland smash it for Dortmund will only serve as a reminder for what might have been.
