Sevilla Fuming After Erling Haaland Taunts Goalkeeper Having Scored Retaken Penalty

Sevilla's players were fuming with Erling Haaland after he taunted their goalkeeper having scored a retaken penalty.

The Borussia Dortmund striker, who'd already put this side 1-0 up in the first half of the Champions League last 16 second leg, thought he'd scored a second with a blockbuster finish. But the referee had already blown his whistle for a Borussia penalty.

Haaland saw his penalty saved by goalkeeper Bono, but the Sevilla stopper was off his line, so the ref ordered a retake. This time Haaland blasted the ball just past the keeper's reach - then ran and celebrated right in Bono's face.

The furious - and rather brave - Sevilla outfield players chased after the giant Norwegian goal machine and he was pushed by midfielder Joan Jordan.

The Sevilla players were clearly incensed, although Haaland's Dortmund teammates blocked their path to the still-celebrating striker, as he lay on the turf.

Both Haaland and Joan Jordan were booked before the game restarted, Haaland for his actions towards the keeper and Jordan for leading the chase for Haaland as he celebrated.

At least the goal stood this time, giving Borussia a 5-2 advantage on aggregate (although Sevilla pegged it back to 5-3 with a penalty of their own shortly after, before Youssef En-Nesyri's bullet header made it 5-4 overall at the end).

Haaland's goal - his 20th in the Champions League - broke Kylian Mbappe's record for the most goals scored by a player under the age of 21.

It also meant no player has scored more Champions League goals than Haaland since he made his debut in the competition (Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski has 19 goals in the same timespan).

The tie in Germany on Wednesday eventually finished 2-2 on the night, 5-4 to Borussia on aggregate - Haaland having scored four goals over the two games.
