Erling Haaland's goal rate just doesn't slow down and he bagged another double as Dortmund defeated Freiburg easily on Saturday.

But how did Haaland play in his side's 4-0 victory?

📷 Erling Haaland: Match Snapshot

⏱️ 31' Gio Reyna, who was also superb on the day creating three assists, slipped in Haaland in the channel and the forward did what he does best, sliding across the goalkeeper with his left foot.

⏱️ 66' And his second goal is one which is becoming his trademark. Having been set clear by Reyna again, he squared up to the goalkeeper before lifted his finish high about him as the shot-stopper committed himself.

A ⏱️ 45' And he was also unbelievably unselfish in injury time, and as he ran clear on goal he chose to slide to his right to allow Felix Passlack to roll into the empty net.

Both he and Reyna enjoyed an exciting, fabulous relationship throughout the contest and their partnership will be something worth watching this season.

Haaland: What Next?

Including international appearances, Haaland already has eight goals and three assists this season in just 575 minutes of action. It's true that there's not much else to his game other than scoring, but why would there need to be when he's so good at it?

If Haaland can maintain this form and Dortmund can eradicate the silly losses, such as at Augsburg last week, they can put together a genuine challenge to Bayern.
