Just how did he get on, though?
📷 Erling Haaland: Match Snapshot
Haaland had shown early promise in this encounter with an outrageous touch after 17 minutes, but his side trailed 1-0 at the break to a Matheus Cunha strike.
⚽ ⏱️ 47' Emre Can was the architect of Haaland’s opening goal, charging down the right channel before drilling the ball across goal. The Norway international stretched out his left boot to score from six yards.
⚽ ⏱️ 49' This time Dortmund profited down the left. Haaland raced into the channel and lashed a shot across goal into the net.
⚽ ⏱️ 62' A sloppy pass was emphatically punished by the striker. He outpaced and brushed off one defender before rounding the goalkeeper to complete his treble.
⚽ ⏱️ 79' Raphael Guerreiro made the game safe with 20 minutes remaining, yet Haaland capped a special night by netting his fourth. Excellent play by substitute Jude Bellingham teed him up.

Haaland: What Next?
Dortmund have pulled to within a single point of Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga, and while FCB will be hard to match over the whole season, with Haaland in such immense form, they can never be written off.
A midweek match against Club Brugge should be an opportunity to better his goal tally before FC Koln visit next Saturday.
