Incredible statistic: Therefore, the flock giants of the ocean on the 19-year-old Erling

the List of football notables, which in recent decades has been to make the Champions League for some of the most spectacular in modern football is a long one.

From Raúl, van Nistelrooy and Shevchenko to Ronaldo, Messi and Ibrahimovic.

But right now they must all live with to stand in the shadow of the 19-year-old Erling from Bryne in Norway.

the Comet was Tuesday evening, noted for his seventh goal in this season's edition of the Champions League in four matches. He has scored in all four matches this sæon. Three against Genk, one against Liverpool, two against Napoli and now again against Napoli.

It is not just a rarity. It is completely crazy.

Especially with the thought of his age - and that this is his first four Champions League matches. Ever. And it is so for Red Bull Salzburg, there is probably a hefty laban in the austrian football - but a miniput on the european scene.


Yes, yes, two of the targets are put into a penalty. But both times, against Napoli, where a goal either have settled for Red Bull Salzburg - or as in last night, where nordmandens kick sent the austrians ahead after 11 minutes.

And it requires just one more addition: the Austrians, who for years have struggled to get into the Champions League (nine failed attempts in the past ten seasons), comes finally in the warmth, and then puts the gudhjælpemig a 19-year-old to kick the penalty!

According to Norwegian TV 2's expert, Jesper Mathiesen, however, there is no reason to panic about it. Allegedly abused Braut Håland a penalty kick when he was U16 player. Since then, he has scored on 26 kicks in a row!

A glance thrown out of the list of goal scorers in Champions League history (which as you know goes back to the autumn of 1992) tells that there have been a few other players who have managed to score in their first four matches. It is about Zé Carlos, Alessandro Del Piero and Diego Costa.

Zé Carlos was 27 years old, Del Piero 20 and Costa 25 - and then they played for significantly larger clubs (FC Porto, Juventus and Atlético Madrid). But no teenager has scored in his first four matches - and no teenager has scored so many goals.

Kylian Mbappé veered in the 2016/17 season, Raúls teen-record with six goals as a teenager in the tournament. But it is now surpassed.


Statisticians have after the match on Tuesday, figured out that Braut Håland are listed for the 11 finishes in the four matches, of which nine have hit the box. Seven of them are then gone into.

the Next aim must be to tangere Diego Costa, who scored in his first five CL-matches in the fall of 2013.

The many objectives have already been rygtesmede, agents, journalists, and played almost the entire european continent to evacuate themselves. And what has Red Bull Salzburg made? Well, nothing yet officially. But there is enough given to one or more handshake in the club's management that the young Håland not being sold for pennies.

Red Bull Salzburg sports director, 42-year-old Christopher Freund, and left immediately after the match against Napoli Norwegian World know that it is good to know what the future brings.

- He's a great guy. He trains very hard, is always positive and has a lot of energy. It is an incredible development for a ungspiller.

- He is for the time in Salzburg and hopefully, in the coming months. At the same time, we know the industry, he said to the Norwegian media, and hinted thereby that one should not be surprised, if there ticks a sufficiently high and crazy bids in from a of years in England, Spain or Italy.

The many goals despite lagging the austrians tremendously in the Champions League - four points behind Napoli in second place. Red Bull Salzburg ahead in the tournament, it requires to triumph over Genk at stamford bridge and Liverpool at home, while Napoli with victory at home against Genk in the last round can play out on.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------
