Haaland smashes Mbappe UCL record

RB Salzburg wonderkid Erling Haaland smashed a UEFA Champions League record previously held by Raul Gonzalez and Kylian Mbappe - as his explosive season continues.

Haaland, 19, is widely considered as one of the brightest prospects in European football at the moment, breaking records at an extraordinary rate with the Austrian giants.

His first season in the Champions League has already 20 major clubs lining up for his services, with Austrian media already dubbing him 'the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic'.

After opening the scoring from the spot against Napoli in the 1-1 draw on Tuesday evening, the teenager took his tally to seven goals in just four games - which is the most any teenager has scored a single Champions League season.

With two Group games remaining, Haaland has already broken the previous record of six held jointly by Raul and Mbappe.

Overall, the Norway international has scored 23 goals in 17 games across all competitions this season.
