Erling Haaland scored five of City's seven goals, giving them a 7-0 victory over RB Leipzig on a memorable night of Champions League football.


Haaland has now surpassed Tommy Johnson's club record of 38 goals in a single season set in 1928/29 with a staggering 39 goals from 36 games.


The hosts created the first opportunity quickly, with Ilkay Gundogan missing a shot in the area after three minutes following a precise cross from the reactivated Kevin De Bruyne on the right side.

On the 11th minute, Nathan Ake provided a beautifully flighted ball into the path of a charging Haaland, but the star striker was unable to poke it past the alert Janis Blaswich as City started to ramp up the pressure.

After many half-chances for the hosts, there was a tussle inside the Leipzig box on the 19th minute, but it seemed like the visitors had cleared the threat.

Moments later, when he slammed a shot towards the near post, Blaswich palmed it away, nearly giving him his hat-trick.
