Erling Haaland's year in numbers at Borussia Dortmund

Erling Haaland has scored an astonishing 35 goals in 34 competitive games since joining Borussia Dortmund this time a year ago - reason enough to take stock of his first 12 months in the Bundesliga…

1Haaland is the first Dortmund player to score on his debuts in the Bundesliga, DFB Cup, UEFA Champions League and the DFL Supercup.

3 – The Norway international made history at the start of 2020, hitting a hat-trick after coming off the bench on his maiden league outing against Augsburg – the first player in Bundesliga history ever to do so.

4 – The left-footed forward struck four goals in a single Bundesliga game for the first time ever in the Matchday 8 victory over Hertha Berlin. At the age of 20 years and 123 days, he became the youngest player ever to score four in one match in Germany’s top flight.

5 – Haaland bagged five goals after his first two league outings – a Bundesliga record.

7 – He had seven after three games, also a new league best-mark.

8 – The 20-year-old has scored at least twice in eight of his 25 Bundesliga games so far (three braces, one hat-trick, one four-goal haul).

9 – Haaland wears the number 9 shirt at Dortmund. Predecessors Paco Alcacer, Michy Batshuayi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all wore that number and all likewise scored on their Bundesliga debuts.

19 – Haaland was just 19 years, 182 days old when he scored his first Bundesliga hat-trick, becoming the second youngest player in league history to do so. Only Frankfurt’s Walter Bechtold (in 1965) was younger at the time of his first treble.

25 – The striker has scored 25 goals in his first 25 Bundesliga games. He is the first player in the league's history to do so. The previous record was set in 1963/64 by Uwe Seeler, who found the net 23 times over the same period of matches.

75 – Haaland averages a goal every 75 minutes in the Bundesliga, the best quota in league history of any player to have scored at least 10 times.
