Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland scored the second in Marco Rose’s team’s 1-2 victory at Besiktas’ fiefdom.. The German team started the 2021/22 edition of the Champions League with a great victory and, of course, with their scoring nose being key in the last third: scored his 21st goal in the top European competition in just 17 games.
Norwegian, which is one of the most sought-after footballers by all the big clubs in Europe such as Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United or Bayern, among others, continues to show his great relationship with the goal since he signed for Borussia Dortmund: has been the youngest player to exceed 20 goals in the Champions League.

The former Salzburg player has nine goals in the first seven games of the season (14 if we add the three with the Norwegian national team during the national team break) and is one of the fittest forwards alongside Robert Lewandowski. Also with Karim Benzema, the three players are at the top in the fight for the 2021/22 Golden Boot.

Since he made his professional debut with Norwegian Bryne at just 16 years old, the forward registers 115 goals in 160 games: 20 with Molde FK, 29 with Red Bull Salzburg and another 66 with Borussia Dortmund. 127 goals in 175 games if we also take into account his appearances with the senior team.
