Haaland breaks the 40-goal barrier in City’s six-goal victory

0 2

And after scoring five goals against Razen Pal Sport Leipzig in the Champions League last week, the Norwegian striker continued to shine, hitting the second-division leaders at the Etihad Stadium.

The 22-year-old striker scored twice in the 32nd and 35th minutes and completed his sixth hat-trick in one game this season when he followed up on a rebound and scored just before the hour mark.

Haaland thus reached 42 goals with City since joining from Borussia Dortmund last June.

Julian Alvarez scored twice and substitute Cole Palmer scored one to take City to 13 this week and reach the semi-finals.

The result is a blow to former Burnley coach Vincent Kompany, City defender who is close to quickly returning his team to the top flight.

Haaland became the sixth player in the Premier League era to score at least 40 goals in all competitions in one season, after Ruud van Nistelrooy (44), Mohamed Salah (44), Cristiano Ronaldo (42), Andy Cole (41) and Harry Kane (41). . With City competing in three leagues, they have the chance to extend their record. Alan Shearer, the historical top scorer for the English Premier League, said during his analysis on the BBC’s “Match of the Day” program, “He may score 50 goals, or he may reach 60. He is crazy.” “He’s like a beast. He’s a goal-scoring machine. He lives and breathes by scoring goals.”

Haaland was humble, despite his impressive stats.

The Norwegian striker said, “He went through a good period in the last matches. Winning 7-0 and 6-0 before the international break is wonderful and I am very happy. Every goal means a lot to me, and every goal for the team means a lot.”

The rest of the quarter-final matches will be held on Sunday, where Manchester United will play Fulham, Sheffield United with Blackburn Rovers and Brighton & Hove Albion with Grimsby Town of the fourth division.
