Every record Erling Haaland broke last night for Man City in ‘remarkable’ UCL display

Manchester City’s striker, Erling Haaland, is known for frequently setting records. However, it was a surprise for many when he managed to score five goals in a single match against RB Leipzig.

Despite this, the 22-year-old football sensation was in excellent form on Tuesday night and made history by becoming the third player in the current UEFA Champions League iteration to achieve this feat, following in the footsteps of Lionel Messi and Brazilian forward Luiz Adriano.

The achievement of scoring five goals in a single match is so rare in football that the BT Sport commentators referred to Haaland’s performance against Leipzig as “remarkable”.

Even on the biggest stage of them all, the Champions League, such a feat is exceptional and goes beyond what words can express.

Although Haaland managed to match Messi’s five-goal record, he accomplished much more than that on the European stage.

In addition to his impressive feat, the Premier League star also surpassed Tommy Johnson’s Manchester City record of 38 goals in a single season, taking his overall tally to 39 goals across all competitions.

This remarkable achievement is a testament to Haaland’s incredible skills and talent as a footballer.

Haaland’s exceptional performance not only broke City’s historical record but also made him the fastest player in the Champions League history to score 30 goals.

He surpassed Kylian Mbappe’s record, achieving this feat in just 24 matches. This is yet another remarkable achievement for the Norwegian striker, further cementing his status as one of the most impressive footballers of his generation.

With two months of the season still remaining, it will be exciting to see what other records he may break in the future.

It was widely predicted that Haaland would break records at City, and he certainly lived up to those expectations by making an explosive start to his career with the reigning Premier League champions.

However, his goalscoring prowess is not just limited to the domestic league, as he has now taken his exceptional abilities to Europe in a big way, leaving Leipzig to rue their luck.

The German club would have undoubtedly hoped for a different outcome, but they were powerless to stop Haaland’s outstanding performance on the night.
