How many goals did Haaland score while playing for Borussia Dortmund?

The Norwegian forward has made an immediate impact at Man City since his move from Dortmund with Haaland looking forward to returning to his former club in the Champions League.

Erling Braut Haaland’s start to life in the Premier League has been nothing short of outrageous. He has netted 10 goals in six appearances, the joint-fastest player in the history of the competition to reach that tally, alongside Micky Quinn back in 1992.

The 22-year-old wasted little time in transferring his domestic form to the European stage, too, scoring a double in City’s 4-0 victory over Sevilla last week, and it is in the Champions League, not the Premier League, where City really need him to make the difference.

Only 36 players in Champions League history have scored more goals in the competition than Haaland, who has 25 from his 20 appearances in UEFA’s flagship club tournament.

He is the first City player to score on both his Premier League and Champions League debuts for the club and the fourth player in the competition’s history to score in his first appearance for three different teams (Salzburg, Dortmund and City), after Fernando Morientes, Javier Saviola and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Haaland’s tally is the most by any player from their first 20 Champions League games, and should he score against Dortmund, he will be the second player to net in the competition both for and against the Bundesliga giants, after Ciro Immobile.

It was this kind of form that attracted City, who needed a big game striker missed out on signing Harry Kane in 2021.

Haaland moves to Signa Iduna Park

The Norwegian player started to hit the headlines back in the 2019/20 season with Red Bull Salzburg where he bagged 8 Champions League goals for the Austrian side in six games. His goal scoring was consistent too that season in the domestic Austrian Bundesliga so it was only a question of time before bigger clubs would be clamouring for his services.

He moved to Borussia Dortmund in the winter of 2019 and spent three seasons with the German giants. His knack for finding the target showed no sign of slowing down at the higher level and he ended up winning the German DFB Pokal with BVB in 2021 where a brace was enough to overcome RB Leipzig in the Berlin final and his overall strike rate at the Bundesliga makes for impressive reading.
