Erling Håland continues super scoring streak for Dortmund

Erling Braut Håland has been at it again this afternoon, bagging a further two goals as Borussia Dortmund pick up another resounding victory.

Dortmund once again looked very good early on today as they hosted Union Berlin at the Westfalenstadion. It didn’t take long for them to get off the mark either, as Jadon Sancho put Dortmund in the lead after just 13 minutes.

Five minutes later, Håland nabbed his sixth goal in a Dortmund shirt – it came as Julian Brandt whipped in a dangerous cross from the right hand side, nobody was marking Håland and he had the simple job of tapping it in from a few yards out.

In the second half, Dortmund went on to thoroughly dominate and blow Union out the water. The third goal came after 68 minutes as Håland was brought down in the area by the keeper Rafal Gikiewicz. Marco Reus stepped up and duly dispatched the penalty – all but putting the game to bed.

Just to be sure of the points, Axel Witsel got himself involved in the scoring as he slammed home following a lovely bit of play down the right wing, followed by a fantastic Jadon Sancho cross.

Erling Håland can’t stop scoring

Then, on 77 minutes, Håland got himself another one as Dortmund broke at pace from their own box. The move culminated with Sancho playing a ball to Brandt, who backheeled it right into the path of Håland – he was never missing.

That’s now seven goals in his first three games for Borussia Dortmund. Unbelievable form considering he was a second half substitute in two of those three matches.

The young Norwegian has to be one of the best strikers in Europe right now, and although I fully expect his goalscoring exploits to slow down at least a little, I can see him going on to challenge for many a golden boot throughout his career.

The nose for goal that Håland has is purely unteachable and, even though I’ve only had the chance to see him play a handful of times, he is genuinely a sheer joy to watch on the football pitch. Long may it continue.
