Haaland Breaks Messi, Ronaldo’s Special Record To Become Future Ballon d’Or Winner

Haaland Breaks Messi Ronaldo's Special Record
Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has recently broken Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s record.

The striker, who scored in Dortmund’s 4-0 win over Schalke this weekend, has better goal stats this season than Ronaldo and Messi’s numbers at his age.

At just 19 years, nine months and 23 days, Haaland – with a tally of 41 goals in 2019-20 season – Haaland is the first soccer player, on this planet, to get to 40 or more goals for the first time in a single season as a teenager.

When Ronaldo first scored 40 or more goals in a campaign, he was aged 23 years, three months, and six days.

He clinched the feat with Manchester United when he had netted 42 goals during the 2007-08 campaign.

It took the Portuguese seven seasons to do so in comparison to Haaland’s four seasons.
Ronaldo’s record was broken by his arch-rival Messi, who had netted 40 or more goals in a single campaign when he was aged 22 years, 10 months and six days.

The Barcelona skipper bagged the record during the 2009-10 season when he scored 47 goals.

Even Messi took longer to score 40 or more goals in a single season as he needed two campaigns more than Haaland’s four.

These numbers testify to the fact that Haaland is tipped to be the future Ballon d’Or winner.
