Haaland scores first post-lockdown goal as Dortmund seals 4-0 win over Schalke
Norwegian sensation Erling Braut Haaland stole the limelight on Saturday as the German Bundesliga became the first major European football league to return since the Coronavirus lockdown, with teams playing in empty, echoing stadiums.
Haaland, 19, striker claimed the first goal in Germany's top flight for over two months to set Borussia Dortmund on the way to a 4-0 win over their local rivals Schalke.
Guerreiro scores twice
Portuguese international Raphael Guerreiro then added two goals either side of a Thorgan Hazard strike as second-placed Dortmund moved to within a point of leaders Bayern Munich. Haaland steered a low Thorgan Hazard cross into the far corner on 29 minutes to claim his 10th goal in just nine Bundesliga matches. It was his 41st goal this season in all competitions and his 13th for Dortmund in just 12 games.
He celebrated by dancing alone—making no contact with teammates, who clapped him on—to comply with the strict hygiene guidelines which allowed the league to return.
