The Norwegian hitman put in a sensational performance in his side’s Bundesliga opener at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.
Erling Haaland was involved in four goals as Borussia Dortmund cruised to a 5-2 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Some 25,000 fans in attendance were able to experience Haaland’s heroics as Dortmund allowed a portion of their 81,000-capacity stadium to be filled after playing behind closed doors for the entirety of 2020-21.
It was captain Marco Reus who opened the scoring for the hosts, scoring his 100th league goal for the club after being teed up by Haaland.
The 21-year-old then set up another one of his teammates, Thorgan Hazard, before getting on the scoresheet himself to ensure BVB go into the break with a healthy advantage.
Twenty minutes before time, much later after he had helped Giovani Reyna make things worse for Frankfurt, the Norway international further increased his side’s lead with a composed finish.
Haaland has now found the back of the net an astonishing 62 times in just 61 games in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund.
The striker will be hoping he can keep up his impressive form when Dortmund welcome Bundesliga champions and rivals Bayern Munich at the Signal Iduna Park for the German Super Cup final on Tuesday.
