Haaland rises with City in the Champions League; Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain win

GENEVA (AFP) – It was Erling Haaland’s Champions League show even one night when Paris Saint-Germain superstars Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar all scored in a victory.

Manchester City also trailed, deep in the game, at home on Wednesday against former Haaland club Borussia Dortmund in a superb quick meeting with Norway’s prodigy.

The stage was set for Haaland to win 2-1 after team-mate John Stones equalized the match with a stunning strike in the 80th minute.

Haaland rose to the challenge in the 84th minute when he met a high cross with a twisting jump and an acrobatic shot to send a ball into goal that seemed to pass him.
