Champions League: Erling Haaland’s High-Flying Goal Beats Former Team
Day 2 of Matchday 2 in the Champions League delivered nine games full of drama on Wednesday, but none carried a bigger storyline than the battle in Manchester. Erlind Haaland faced off against his former club Borussia Dortmund, and he struck the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win for Manchester City. Dortmund scored first early in the second half before a laser from John Stones evened the score. In the 83rd minute, it was Haaland who tracked down a cross and finished with a flying high-kick you have to see to believe.
Elsewhere, Napoli, Milan, and PSG were easy winners while Chelsea settled for a draw against RB Salzburg in manager Graham Potter’s debut. The Blues are 0-1-1 to open Champions League play.
