Erling Haaland made history for Manchester City after scoring five times vs RB Leipzig in the Champions League last-16.
On a remarkable night at the Etihad, Haaland produced one of the finest individual displays in the competition's history, equalling Lionel Messi and Luiz Adriano's record of five goals in a single Champions League game.
The Norwegian also took his goal tally for this campaign to 39 – meaning he has now scored more than any other City player in a single season.
Tommy Johnson’s record of 38 had previously stood since 1929.
