City hit seven to ensure CL progress

ABU DHABI, 14th March, 2023 (WAM) — City hit seven – and Erling Haaland scored five of them – to ensure a 7-0 win over RB Leipzig on an unforgettable night of Champions League football.
The victory, on an electric Etihad Stadium evening, helped the Cityzens quality for the quarter-finals of the illustrious competition for a sixth consecutive season.

Haaland became the third player to score five goals in a single Champions League game after Luiz Adriano in October 2014 (Shakhtar Donetsk v BATE Borisov) and Lionel Messi in March 2012 (Barcelona v Bayer Leverkusen).

He has also now scored 33 goals in 25 games in the Champions League, reaching the 30-goal milestone in fewer matches than any other player in the competition’s history – and becoming the youngest player to reach 30 goals in Champions League history at 22 years and 236 days.
