Thanks to a new double from Erling Haaland, Dortmund won against Wolfsburg and achieved a good operation against a direct competitor for qualification in the Champions League (2-0). The Norwegian has offered himself a ninth brace this season in the Bundesliga and crosses the 25-goal mark.
In a shock at the top for the Champions League race, Borussia Dortmund moved to the Wolfsburg lawn this Saturday. The Borussens had to win to stay in the race for the top 4 and not see their opponent of the day soar in the standings. Edin Terzic’s troops could count on Erling Haaland. Less decisive in recent weeks, the Norwegian has again pulled out all the stops to allow his family to pocket a precious victory (2-0).
The center-forward was quick to lead the way, taking advantage of a withdrawal from Ridle Baku to deceive the vigilance of Koen Casteels from the 12th minute. He thus offered his 24th goal of the season … but was not going to stop there.
Already author of a double against Werder last weekend, Erling Haaland repeated the performance. Launched in depth by Dahoud, he left no chance for the Wolfsburg defense to afford another double, his ninth this season in the Bundesliga.
He reached the 25-goal mark
With his two new achievements, the Norwegian star has increased his tally to 25 goals this season, a milestone he has reached for the first time in his young career in a league season.
While transfer rumors about him are rife, Erling Haaland continues to shake the net in the Bundesliga. The Norwegian striker has already made the powder speak 25 times … in just 26 games played. This season, he has scored 37 goals in 38 games in all competitions under the tunic of Borussia Dortmund. Only Robert Lewandowski is doing better this season with Bayern Munich.
