Erling Braut Haaland has marked his Champions League debut for Manchester City with a goal within 20 minutes of the start of their Group G opener against Sevilla this evening.
The Norway international has made a prolific start to life as a Man City player, scoring a record-equalling 10 goals in his opening six Premier League games, including two hat-tricks.
Haaland had already shown his devastating goalscoring abilities on the Champions League stage too, and went into tonight’s match with the best goals-per-game ratio of any player in the competition’s history to have played at least 10 games.
That ratio was soon improved too, with the summer signing netting a trademark close-range finish from Kevin De Bruyne‘s cross after only 20 minutes at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.
HE IS INEVITABLE! 🤯

Seven of Haaland’s 11 goals for Man City have now come from inside the six-yard box, while his overall Champions League tally now stands at 24 goals in just 20 appearances, including five against Sevilla.
