Dortmund had the upper hand in the first half, but was unable to score. In the second half it worked. Haaland worked the ball in close in the 69th minute. Thanks to Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, the French champion quickly came alongside. Mbappé did the preparatory work and Neymar shot the ball into the empty goal in the 75th minute. Both top players were sidelined last weekend in the league game with Amiens (4-4).
The deserved victory for Borussia Dortmund came after all. After a pass by 17-year-old American substitute Giovanni Reyna, Haaland took the ball and then shot hard with a left into the 2-1.
The young Norwegian played for Red Bull Salzburg before the winter break. He scored eight goals in the group stage for the Austrians. Nevertheless, Red Bull finished third and is now dependent on the Europa League.
Haaland is the first player to score for two different clubs in the Champions League main tournament in one season. In the Bundesliga, the long and strong attacker is also on track. In the five competition duels he participated in, he was accurate eight times. Haaland hopes to qualify for the upcoming European Championship in the play-offs with Norway this spring.
The pressure on Paris Saint-Germain and trainer Thomas Tuchel for the return will be great. The superpower has been dominating for years in its own country, but in the Champions League it did not succeed in the last seasons despite all high expectations. PSG stranded in the quarterfinals of the Champions League from 2013 to 2016. From 2017 to 2019, the eighth final was always the end station.
