The UEFA Champions League kicked off the first leg of the round of 16 and two of the biggest standout performances came from Borussia Dortmund phenom Erling Haaland and Italian club Atalanta. The 19-year-old Haaland scored twice to lead Dortmund over PSG, continuing a remarkable run for the Norwegian star. The two goals bring his total to 11 with his new club in just seven appearances, becoming the fastest player ever to reach double-digit goals in Champions League history. Atalanta, meanwhile, blitzed Valencia 4-1 and is in the driver’s seat of reaching the quarterfinals. Planet Futbol’s Luis Miguel Echegaray praises Haaland’s stellar play as well as Atalanta’s creative offensive strategy that’s positioned itself as a tough out.
