Borussia Dortmund has booked a 5-1 win on Friday at 1.FC Köln. The top talent Erling Haaland scored twice as a substitute and broke a Bundesliga record. In the Serie A, AC Milan continued its advance since the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Just like last week against Augsburg (3-5, three hits Haaland), nineteen-year-old Noor started as a substitute at Dortmund-Köln on Friday. The top talent came on the field in the 65th minute and thirteen minutes later he scored by tapping into a rebound.
His second goal in the 88th minute was a lot nicer. He surrounded the goalkeeper and shot the ball into the empty goal from a very difficult angle.
Haaland is the first player in the history of the Bundesliga to score five goals in his first two games. Four other players scored four goals in their first two games. For his five hits, the striker taken from Red Bull Salzburg took only 59 minutes.
Haaland made the last two goals of the evening. Dortmund took the lead within the minute via Raphaël Guerreiro and Marco Reus made it 2-0 after half an hour.
Shortly after the break, Jadon Sancho scored the 3-0, after which Köln returned a bit via former Heracles and Heerenveen striker Mark Uth, who scored on the instructions of former PEC Zwolle defender Kingsley Ehizibue.

Milan continues to advance with Ibrahimovic
In Italy, AC Milan booked its third consecutive victory in a row at Brescia. Substitute Ante Rebic made the only goal of the match in Stadio Mario Rigamonti twenty minutes before the end: 0-1.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic stood in the field among the visitors from Milan throughout the match. The returned striker had a big chance just before the break, but he aimed close at hand.
With the ninth victory of the season, Milan climbed to sixth place in Serie A. When 38-year-old Ibrahimovic was presented in San Siro at the end of December, coach Stefano Pioli’s team was only eleventh.

Goal Dolberg not enough for Nice victory
In the French Ligue 1, Kasper Dolberg made his sixth league score of the season, but the former Ajax player was unable to help OGC Nice win against Stade Rennes: 1-1.
Flavien Tait made the equalizer ten minutes before time on behalf of the visitors, who are third. Nice is the number ten in France.
Phillip Cocu hoped to qualify with Derby County in England for the fifth round of the FA Cup, but the number sixteen of the Championship came to visit the two divisions playing Northampton Town no further than 0-0. The teams will therefore have to repeat in Derby.
