Sevilla vs Man City LIVE: Champions League result and final score as Erling Haaland gets two goals

Delighted how Haaland has settled – Pep

Erling Haaland continued his free-scoring start to life at Manchester City with two more goals in a 4-0 win over Sevilla in Champions League Group G on Tuesday.

The Norwegian has now scored 12 goals in seven competitive games for City since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund during the close-season.

The blonde striker put City ahead in the 20th minute, stretching to reach a cross from Kevin De Bruyne and place it past Sevilla keeper Yassine Bounou.

Phil Foden made it 2-0 after the break, jinking and turning to create space on the edge of the box before placing the ball into the bottom corner.

Haaland then made sure of a comfortable victory, pouncing to tap-in after Bounou had pushed out a low drive from the impressive Foden and then defender Ruben Dias added the fourth in stoppage time, turning in a low cross from Joao Cancelo.

Erling Haaland scores twice as Man City sweep aside Sevilla in the Champions League

The Champions League anthem is Erling Haaland’s alarm and it would be tempting to describe his first appearance in this competition for Manchester City as a wake up call for the rest of Europe, if indeed they really needed one. Haaland will wake up tomorrow morning a happy man after his first goals in the continent’s elite club competition for his new club extended his remarkable start to life as a City player. It is now 12 goals in seven games for the Norwegian.

If Pep Guardiola is right to believe that Haaland will not win City their first European Cup on his own, he will certainly help. The scariest thing is, on this evidence, they may not even need him. Sevilla, the fourth-placed side in La Liga last season, were swatted aside by four unanswered goals despite the best efforts of a noisy Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, which had no sympathy for the efforts of their players after the final whistle, jeering Julen Lopetegui’s players nor did they seek forgiveness for the defeat.

You imagine Sevilla are not the only side that City will do this to in this group stage, let alone this competition. Haaland’s two goals were further evidence of his pure goalscoring instinct, his ability to be in the right place at the right time, as well as bludgeon his way there through raw strength and power if he has to. His brace sandwiched a Phil Foden strike, while Ruben Dias rounded off the scoring late on.
