Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has scored 20 UEFA Champions League goals in just 14 games.

Haaland has achieved the milestone in ten matches fewer than the next player on the list, Tottenham's Harry Kane, who had set a new benchmark when he struck his 20th goal in November 2019 – on his 24th appearance in the competition. The Norwegian is also the first to reach the landmark figure before his 21st birthday.

Haaland, 20, attained the mark with two more goals against Sevilla. The Dortmund ace has scored ten goals in this season's tournament alone, four more than anyone else.
