    Erling Haaland has equaled Lionel Messi’s legendary record of scoring 5 goals in a Champions League match which is incredibly insane. Though there are some rare records that are meant to never be broken, and people included this record too, once again, it was proved that records are meant to be broken indeed. Haaland registered a brilliant performance against RB Leipzig by scoring 5 goals for his club Manchester City and guided his team to the Quarterfinals of the UCL.

    Haaland became the youngest player to reach 30 Champions League goals

    Besides equalling Messi’s record, Haaland also became the youngest player to reach 30 Champions League goals by beating Kylian Mbappe with his first in a 7-0 win, and he secured this achievement faster than any other footballer.

    The list of breaking records doesn’t even end here, as the Norwegian international broke a 94-year-old record for the most goals scored by a City player in a particular campaign. Also, Erling Haaland became the only third player to score five times in one Champions League match, with the first one being Lionel Messi against Bayer Leverkusen in 2012.

    Another player to achieve the feat

    The other player apart from Messi and Haaland to achieve this feat is a little less recognizable achieved this feat in 2014, the then Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano; the Brazilian international scored five against BATE Borisov.

    And with Erling Haaland scoring 5 goals in a row in a specific UCL match, he is the next to achieve this feat. They defeated their opponent by a score of 7-0, where he scored the first goal by a penalty, and with that flow, he didn’t even think to stop, registering his last goal in the match in 57th minute.
