Erling Braut Haaland scored his ninth Bundesliga goal in six games for Borussia Dortmund as he continues to take the world by storm since his January move from RB Leipzig. 

The Norweigan wonderkid gave Dortmund a two-goal cushion against Werder Bremen in typically emphatic style. He latched onto a cutback from Achraf Hakimi to bullet the ball past the helpless Bremen stopper.

Haaland’s strike marked his fourth of the week after an impressive Champions League brace against PSG and a goal against Eintracht Frankfurt in the league.

His goal followed a finish from defender Dan-Axel Zagadou that helped Dortmund climb back to second in the Bundesliga, just four points from Bayern Munich at the helm.

After a dull first half without a shot on target, Lucien Favre must have grilled his Dortmund side at half-time as they came out swinging at the Weserstadion. 

In the 52nd minute, Jadon Sancho’s curling corner was met with a powerful volley from defender Dan-Axel Zagadou to give Dortmund a crucial lead. It was the Frenchman’s first goal of the season. 

Haaland’s goal followed and the men in yellow cruised to another easy league victory. 

They are now just four points behind rivals Bayern Munich in top spot in the Bundesliga.
