Tuesday night’s Champions League last-16 first leg between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain was all about one man: Erling Haaland.
The 19-year-old was in scintillating form for Dortmund and scored the two goals that earned his team a 2-1 victory.
Haaland broke the deadlock in the 69th-minute tap-in before Neymar levelled the scores shortly afterwards. But Haaland won the game thanks to a quite brilliant strike with just over 10 minutes of normal time remaining.
While the result obviously isn’t ideal for PSG, it’s also not a total disaster.
They have a precious away goal and that may very well make them the narrow favourites by the time the second leg comes around on March 11.

With the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Angel Di Maria on the pitch, you can never rule out Thomas Tuchel’s side - especially at the Parc des Princes.
Back to Tuesday evening’s clash at the Westfalenstadion, though, and Layvin Kurzawa produced what is surely the funniest moment of the Champions League season so far - and perhaps the most bizarre, too.
The left wing-back intercepted the ball deep inside his own half before launching a marauding run down the flank, beating several Borussia Dortmund players in the process.
He then cut onto his right foot and, despite being under no pressure whatsoever, inexplicably booted the ball into the stands.
Watch it here…
Talk about going from 100 to zero within seconds.
He clearly spotted something interesting in Row Z.
Unsurprisingly, the clip has gone viral on social media.
Kurzawa was trending for all the wrong reasons but at least he made everyone laugh with his moment of madness.News Now - Sport News
