    Erling Haaland Hits 'Record' Five To Ease Man City Into Champions League Quarters

    Erling Haaland equalled a Champions League record with a five-goal haul to ease Manchester City into the quarter-finals at RB Leipzig's expense with a 7-0 win on Tuesday.
    "Firstly, I'm proud to play in this competition, I love it," added Haaland. "
    The snowy weather was more akin to Haaland's homeland, but City did not freeze under the pressure and kept their Champions League dreams alive.
    "They didn't allow us to control the game at all, at no stage of the game.
    Two minutes later it was 2-0 as Haaland teed up De Bruyne, who smashed a shot against the bar, and then showed his speed and strength to power home a header from the rebound.
    In the process, he moved level with Lionel Messi and Luiz Adriano's record of scoring five goals in a Champions League game.
