Haaland in Champions
33 goals in 25 matches
One goal every 56.4 minutes played

Haaland, the Argentine star and former Brazilian striker of Palmeiras and Internacional, are the only ones to score five goals in the same Champions League match. No other player in history has scored more goals in a championship game.

Messi achieved the feat in Barcelona’s 7-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in 2012. Luis Adriano scored five goals in Shakhtar Donetsk’s 7-0 win over BATE Borisov in 2014, in a group stage match.

Haaland could surpass that figure, but he was replaced by Pep Guardiola in the 17th minute of the second half. However, the former Borussia Dortmund needed less time to score his five goals. Unlike the Brazilian, the Norwegian and Argentine player set the mark in the knockout match.
