Erling Braut Haaland continued his remarkable scoring form this season with two more goals to give Borussia Dortmund the advantage over Paris St-Germain in their Champions League last-16 tie.
The 19-year-old Norwegian showed two distinct sides of his impressive game with two second-half strikes – the first a predatory finish after Raphael Guerreiro’s shot was blocked and the second a left-footed thunderbolt from 20 yards.

They took his tally for the season to a stunning 39 goals in only 29 appearances, and 11 in seven since joining Dortmund in January.
In between the Haaland goals, Neymar briefly drew the visitors level, slotting in a low Kylian Mbappe cross on his return following four matches out with a rib injury.

But he was outshone by Haaland, who gave the German side the result their positive display deserved and a narrow lead to take to the Parc des Princes for the second leg on Wednesday 11 March.

Haaland is now the joint top goal scorer in the Champions league this season as he is tied on 10 goals with Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski.
However, PSG will be confident that they can turn the tie in their favour and go beyond the last 16 for the first time in four seasons on a ground that has seen them net 18 times in four games in 2020.
