Erling Haaland made history for Manchester City after scoring five times vs RB Leipzig in the Champions League last-16.
On a remarkable night at the Etihad, Haaland produced one of the finest individual displays in the competition’s history, equalling Lionel Messi and Luiz Adriano’s record of five goals in a single Champions League game.
The Norwegian also took his goal tally for this campaign to 39 – meaning he has now scored more than any other City player in a single season.
Tommy Johnson’s record of 38 had previously stood since 1929.
After netting his fifth, many felt it inevitable that Haaland would become the first player to net six times in a Champions League match.
But Pep Guardiola subbed off the striker on the hour mark – denying him the chance to do so.
But while Haaland may be ever so slightly disappointed he couldn’t create Champions League history in his own right, it was sill a night to remember for the forward.
