Erling Haaland

Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland has set a new record in the Champions League as he continues to enhance his burgeoning reputation.

He was on target in the Champions League Matchday Four clash between Italian Serie A giants Napoli and Red Bull Salzburg FC of Austria on Wednesday night.

Erling Haaland scored a first half penalty to give the visitors the lead but they were unable to hold on to it after summer signing Hirving Lozano scored a 43rd-minute equalizer for Napoli as the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw.

The form of Erling Haaland has attracted several clubs in Europe and fallen Premier League giants Manchester United are not left out.

The latest Champions League goal was his seventh in the group stage this season thus making him the highest goalscoring teenager in the history of the competition ahead of retired Spanish international Raul Gonzalez and Kylian Mbappe (6 goals).

He also has the record for the most goals scored after four group stage games with seven goals which is two more goals than any other player.

Erling Haaland is the fourth player to score in each of the first four group stage games after Ze Carlos, Alessandro Del Piero and Diego Costa.
