What record did Haaland break against Sevilla?

After previously becoming the
fastest to five and 10 goals in Champions League play, Haaland became the
only player to reach at least 17 goals in his first 13 appearances in the
competition. He padded that mark soon after.

He has scored 10 Champions
League goals in just seven appearances for Borussia Dortmund, the quickest a
player has ever reached 10 goals for a single team in the competition, breaking
Roy Makaay’s record with Bayern Munich.

With Haaland’s second
accurate finish on Wednesday, he moved into a tie with Robert Lewandowski
for most Champions League goals since the start of last season.

What did Haaland say after the match?

“I felt like, I don’t know
if you can say it’s down to motivation or passion or whatever, but we were more
online today,” Haaland told DAZN. “It was good. It was not good
to let in two goals, but it is good to score three away goals and take them
with us.

“We had a good plan. Edin
[Terzic] has been good and I’ve been talking a lot with him. He said today
would be my game and that I would get my chances and I did, so it was an
important win.

 “We have to recover
quickly now. We’ve got a big game ahead this weekend. We have to take this
positive mindset into that game because we have to win that one as well, but it
was really nice to win tonight in Spain.”

How does Haaland compare to other memorable Champions
League starts?

Haaland holds an edge over many
of today’s most celebrated European attackers by way of pure early-career goalscoring.

Lewandowski and Luis Suarez
hadn’t yet featured in the Champions League when they were Haaland’s age (20),
while Cristiano Ronaldo had failed to score in 1,299 minutes of action at
Manchester United.

Haaland has averaged about 1.64
goals per 90 minutes in the competition to this point, far more than Lionel
Messi (0.47) and Kylian Mbappe (0.67) had through their age-20
