Borussia Dortmund's teenage sensation, Erling Braut Haaland has emerged as one of the best young strikers in the world this season and the 19-year-old continued to amaze everyone with his performance against Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 first-leg of the Champions League on Tuesday.
Haaland, netted a brace on the night leading the Germans to a crucial 2-1 win , while also adding a record to his name - with the striker becoming the fastest player to score 10 goals in Champions League history.

The Norwegian has needed only seven games to reach the 10-goal mark, which is four games quicker than any other player in the competition’s history. At 19 years and 212 days, Haaland is the second youngest player to reach 10 goals in the Champions League, behind PSG star Kylian Mbappe, who did so at the age of 18 years and 360 days.
Such has been his form that the striker became the first Dortmund player to score on his debut in the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB-Pokal, while also becoming only the third player, after Alessandro Del Piero and Diego Costa, to score in his first five matches in the competition.
He now has scored an incredible 11 goals in seven games for Dortmund since joining them in January and if he continues this form there is no reason why they cannot win their first Bundesliga title since 2011/12.
