Erling Haaland scores wonder goal for Borussia Dortmund as Jadon Sancho breaks Bundesliga record in rout against Schalke February 21, 2021 – Posted in: Soccer
It was the Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho show for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday as they thrashed rivals Schalke 4-0 in the Bundesliga.
Norway striker Haaland took plenty of plaudits for his midweek Champions League performance where he scored twice, and assisted another, in a brilliant win over Sevilla.
The 20-year-old can’t stop scoring for Dortmund at the moment and produced another stunning display in the German top flight.
England international Sancho had opened the scoring for his side after 42 minutes and became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach 35 goals.
He then provided an assist to his teammate when he clipped in a ball to Haaland who then produced an incredible scissor kick from around 12 yards out.
The Norwegian, who looks unstoppable at the moment, added another in the second half.
Dortmund went on to win 4-0 but they are still well off the pace in the Bundesliga. They are down in sixth place and 13 points behind leaders Bayern Munich, who suffered a shock defeat on Saturday.
Haaland and Sancho have been the stars for the German club this season, who have been somewhat disappointing.
The striker has 17 goals in 17 league games this season – still a way behind top scorer Robert Lewandowski who has 26.
In total, Haaland has 43 goals in 43 appearances for Dortmund since he joined from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020.
