Erling Haaland angers Sevilla players by taunting goalkeeper after scoring penalty

Haaland gave back as good as he got from the Sevilla goalkeeper

Erling Haaland scored more goals for Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday. Of course Erling Haaland scored more goals for Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Leading 3-2 from the first leg against Sevilla, the Norwegian opened the scoring ten minutes before half-time then scored a penalty early in the second half.

Despite Sevilla later levelling it up on the night, the damage was done, and Dortmund move on to quarter-finals.

There was, however, a tiny – and slightly hilarious – moment of controversy surrounding Haaland’s second.

Brace yourself, this is hard to keep pace with.

Haaland was eventually awarded a penalty via VAR for a foul on him by Jules Kounde. Before it was given, he had the ball in the Sevilla net but was deemed to have committed a foul in the buildup. So this goal was ruled out, but play was brought up for the penalty.

Still making sense?

Having finally stepped up to take the spot-kick, Yassine Bounou saved Haaland’s initial shot and his rebound, only for a retake to be ordered after the goalkeeper came slightly off his line.

Bounou was spotted shouting at Haaland after his double save, something which the Norwegian remembered after tucking away his second attempt. Having found the bottom corner, the striker made a point of screaming at the goalkeeper, angering a couple of Sevilla players in the process.

Haaland ignored the Sevilla player protests in his celebrations, but the sight of them haring after him was a particularly  funny moment nonetheless.
