Erling Haaland continues to impress
Hardly a week goes by without witnessing a headline starring Erling Haaland. The 20-year-old prodigy can’t help but score in every occasion. Having hit the back of the net twice against Club Brugge this Tuesday, he has now become the player to score 15 goals in Champions League’s history faster than anyone else in the past.
It took only 12 games for him to reach this milestone besting great footballers such as Zinedine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. Only a few days before this historic night, he netted the ball four times to help his team defeat Hertha Berlin and close the gap between Dortmund and Bayern Munich to just one point.
It goes without saying that the Norsk wunderkind will break a plethora of records for years to come. The question is whether he will go on to become the world’s best player. While it is too early to speculate about his future, his greatness has already been recognized by the world.
He won the 2020 Golden Boy award, which is a trophy given for the best football players under 21 playing in Europe’s major leagues. Furthermore, his goal-scoring skills have made quite a splash in the betting world. Most of the bookmakers now offer special bets for Haaland to score. As always, the highest odds are offered by Betfair. To take advantage of Erling’s spectacular form, we suggest that you get an original Betfair.com account and win every time he gets on the scoresheet.
Will he stay at Dortmund?
It would be absurd to question Dortmund’s greatness. At the same time, we can’t just ignore the fact that the Black and Yellows have failed to win the Bundesliga for 8 years straight. A born winner like Haaland will not be satisfied with being second best year after year. On a funnier note, the last time Dortmund won the Champions League, Erling wasn’t even born.
Having scored 17 goals in 13 appearances in all competitions, Haaland is already on the radar of massive European clubs. Real Madrid are speculated to be interested in the Norwegian international as they have been desperately looking for a natural goal scorer for almost a decade. Moreover, his compatriot Martin Ødegaard might be a decisive factor in the young striker’s future plans. Ødegaard returned to Real Madrid after having been on loan to Real Sociedad for a season.
We will most certainly see rumors recycle around him in every transfer window. Don’t be surprised if you read about his next move on our sports news section very soon. For sure, Haaland will keep the goals flowing and contribute greatly to his team wherever he lands to.
