Erling Braut Haaland Has Scored 20 Goals This Season And It's Only October
Erling Braut Haaland just cannot stop scoring at the moment.
The 19-year old bagged a brace in Red Bull Salzburg's 3-2 Champions League defeat to Napoli to take his tally to 20 this season.
He tucked away a first-half penalty for his first, having previously had a goal ruled out by VAR for offside, before helping himself to another with a bullet header in the second half.
It's not even November and yet the Norwegian man mountain has a goalscoring record that you'd expect from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It isn't even November yet.
Son of former Leeds and Manchester City defender Alf-Inge, Haaland is currently this season's Champions League top scorer in his debut campaign after scoring six in the first three group games - averaging a goal every 36 minutes.
He notched a hat-trick on his European debut against Genk, scored against Liverpool in a thrilling game at Anfield and continued his rich vein of form with two tonight.
In 13 games this season, he's only failed to score in two - contributing further with five assists for Salzburg.
This kid is different gravy. Haland joined Salzburg for just £4.5 million in 2018 and something the Austrian outfit are in line to make a substantial profit if they choose to cash in on him in the near future.
One of the final 20 nominees for this year's Golden Boy award, Haaland left home at 16 in a bid to seize his opportunity in the game. He's already copying Cristiano Ronaldo's diet and showing the kind of mentality needed to go to the very top level of world football.
