Haaland's UCL haul of six goals this season saw him become first player ever to reach that tally after just three matches in the competition, as well as the first teenager to score six goals in a single UCL campaign.

The Norway international netted hat-trick in his side's opening day win over Genk before scoring against reigning European champions Liverpool in Salzburg's next match. He then netted a brace on Wednesday to climb to the top of the goalscoring standings.
