Watch: Erling Haaland hit five in Man City win over RB Leipzig

The 22-year-old Norwegian Erling Haaland scored five goals in Manchester City's 7-0 win over RB Leipzig, which is coached by Marco Rose, who was Haaland's coach at Borussia Dortmund last season.

The only players who managed five goals in a UEFA Champions League game are Luiz Adriano in Shakhtar Donetsk's 7-0 win over BATE Borisov in 2014 and Lionel Messi for Barcelona against Bayer Leverkusen in 2012.

Haaland's 33 goals in 25 Champions League games make him the youngest player to reach the 30-goal mark in the competition's history, and he did so in the fewer games (25) than any other player.
