Erling Haaland continued his impressive run in the UEFA Champions League as his brace helped Borussia Dortmund see off Sevilla and progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

The young Norwegian has now scored two goals each in all of his previous four Champions League matches and, with 10 goals to his name in the competition so far this season, he tops the goal scoring charts.

The two goals he scored against Sevilla in the second leg saw his Champions League goal tally reach 20, and he, in the process, became the quickest to reach that figure, having taken just 14 matches for it.

Harry Kane held the record before Haaland broke it last night, and the Tottenham Hotspur attacker had taken 24 matches to reach the mark, 10 more than the Dortmund youngster took.

Meanwhile, Dortmund and Sevilla played out a 2-2 draw in the second leg and the Bundesliga giants booked their place in the quarter finals having won the first leg 3-2.

After Haaland put Dortmund ahead with goals in the 35th and 54th minute, Youssef En-Nesyri scored for Sevilla in the 68th and 90+6th minute but it was not enough take them past Edin Terzić's side.
