Erling Haaland wrote this Tuesday one more chapter of what already seems to be his endless history with the goal. At Signal Iduna Park, the Norwegian signed a double to help Borussia Dortmund beat Besiktas 5-0 on matchday six of Group C of the Champions League.
This time, the lanky striker was a substitute and jumped onto the pitch in the 63rd minute to replace Marco Reus. In yet another example of his effectiveness, Haaland, five minutes after his entry, was in charge of decreeing the partial 4-0, with a forceful header after Nico Schulz’s center.
The Germans, despite the large difference, went for more and their effort had results. At 86, a cross from the corner by Mahmoud Dahoud was again headed in by Haaland, who thus achieved his third target in the competition.
Donyell Malen (29 ′), Marco Reus (45 ′ + 2 and 53 ′) were in charge of the other goals for Dortmund, who was in third place in their series and was left with the desire to qualify for the round of 16 of the Champions League. The yellow box, rather, will go on to fight for the title in the Europa League.
“Of course it still hurts because this team has the class for the Champions League, but you don’t deserve it when you lose three games in a row. It was a bit shaky this year, we talked about it a lot. This “only team in Germany”, FC Bayern, always has the consistency, which must be recognized without envy “, analyzed Reus in Amazo Prime.
Borussia Dortmund’s next game will be this Sunday, December 11, against Bochum. After that, Haaland and company will face Greuther Fürth and Hertha Berlin, a rival against whom they will close in 2021 before the break.
