With his goal against RB Leipzig, Erling Haaland became the first player in Champions League history to reach 40 goals in the European competition.
The Norwegian and Manchester City Super-striker scored in their 1-1 draw at home against Liverpool on Saturday to become the fastest player to reach 50 Premier League goals in just 48 games.
The striker did not hesitate to break another record as City fell behind Leipzig upon his return to continental competition.
In his 35th competitive appearance, Haaland’s strike against the German team was his 40th Champions League goal overall.
At 23 years and 130 days, he is currently the youngest player to reach such a milestone and the fastest athlete to do it as well.
In addition, it was Haaland’s 12th goal in 8 games versus Leipzig, the most he has ever scored against one team.
With two goals conceded in the first half, City would have been relieved to see him score at last.
Lois Openda startled the Etihad Stadium by scoring twice while taking advantage of the defense of the defending champions.
Haaland responded early in the second half, and City is still seeking a victory to keep their perfect record in Group G.
Leipzig could not hold on to their lead as England international Phil Foden slotted calmly into the corner to make it 2-2.
Fabio Carvalho, a player on loan from Liverpool, believed he had given the visitors the lead again, but his goal was disallowed for offside.
But when Julian Alvarez located the target inside the area just before full time, City increased their lead to 3-2.
