Erling Haaland played an important part in the convincing victory over Sevilla with his first two goals for Manchester City in the Champions League. It was 4-0 for City in the Spanish city.
Haaland opened the score in the 20th minute by sliding in on a cross from Kevin de Bruyne’s right from the right. Halfway through the second half, the Norwegian made it 0-3 by tapping in from close range after Sevilla keeper Bono had difficulty stopping a shot from Phil Foden. Foden had taken care of the 0-2 in Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan after an hour with a controlled slider. In injury time, Rúben Dias made the fourth for coach Pep Guardiola’s team.
Shortly after his second goal, Haaland was substituted for Argentinian Julián Álvarez. In the Premier League, 22-year-old Haaland, who came over from Borussia Dortmund this summer, has already scored ten goals after six matches.
Nathan Aké (Manchester City) and Karim Rekik (Seville) did not get to play in Seville.
In the same group, Borussia Dortmund won 3-0 against FC Copenhagen earlier in the evening.
