Erling Haaland leads Mohamed Salah at the top of this season’s UEFA Champions League scoring charts after registering his 11th goal of the campaign in Manchester City’s quarter-final first-leg victory at home to Bayern.
The Norwegian forward struck five times in the group stage and, after drawing a blank against Leipzig in the round of 16 first leg, doubled his season’s tally by becoming only the third player to score five in a Champions League match in the second leg to propel Manchester City into the last eight.
The 22-year-old is now three goals clear of Salah, whose Liverpool side was knocked out in the last 16, with the eliminated Kylian Mbappé a goal further back on seven and Vinícius Júnior and João Mário the closest remaining challengers to Haaland on six apiece.
