When Erling Haaland (Norway, 2000) scored his first goal in the Bundesliga, on January 18, 2020, Robert Lewandowski (Poland, 1988) had accumulated 289 celebrations and was already, above Claudio Pizarro, the top foreign scorer in the Bundesliga. history of the German championship. The resounding irruption of the Norwegian, who not only scored one goal but three in just 24 minutes, did not alter the Pole at all. The next day he made his mark in a Bayern rout.

Two and a half years have coincided, separately -although Bayern once wanted Haaland to be Lewandowski's successor-, the two most renowned nines in the world, with the permission of Karim Benzema. They left Germany at the same time, as if they wanted to avoid direct comparisons in the same ecosystem, but football always finds a way to bring them together. Or rather, themselves: Erling in England with Manchester City, Robert in Spain with Barcelona are two of the best scorers at the start of the season. That they write down is not news.

Earlier on Saturday, Haaland once again put his name on a Manchester City victory. Pep Guardiola's machine thrashed Wolves 3-0 at Molineux Stadium, located in the city of Wolverhampton. After Jack Grealish's first goal (55 seconds), the Norwegian 'cyborg' appeared to make it 2-0 momentarily at 16' with a right foot from outside the area. Phil Foden (69 ') closed the account of the Premier point guard with 17 points on an equal footing with Tottenham (he thrashed Leicester 6-2, but has fewer goals difference).

Erling added his 11th Premier League goal in just seven games; that is, 1.5 goals per game. Making fast numbers, if he continues with that goalscoring rhythm, he could end the league season with 57 celebrations, something unprecedented in a league that has the legendary Andrew Cole (Newcastle, 1993-94) and Alan Shearer (Blackburn, 1994-95) at his top scorers per campaign with 35 goals.

  • 10 goals in the Premier
  • 1.5 goals per game
  • Could score 57 goals in the Premier
  • Cole scored 35 (Newcastle 1993-94) and Shearer (Blackburn 94-95).

The centre-forward also became the first player in history to score in four consecutive away games in the English tournament. He previously scored a brace against West Ham, one against Newcastle and another against Aston Villa. The next victim? Possibly Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, a rival he faced in the Community Shield and could not score.

Beyond the remarkable numbers that the Norwegian has been achieving in his furious start in Pep Guardiola's City, figures that have made him the scorer of the 2022-23 season for 14 celebrations (added his three in Champions), what most What surprises him is the incredible quota he has had in his short career: one hundred goals in 99 games.

At just 22 years old, it is even impossible to try to figure out how many goals he will have when he turns 34, the same as Lewandowski. Will he catch up or will he surpass? It is not known, although the Pole has also been inflating nets in Spain and competing inch by inch with the Norwegian.

Manchester City have made the signing of Erling Haaland official from Borussia Dortmund.

Lewandowski, the 'Pichichi' of Spain

In Barcelona, ​​more than a thousand kilometers from Wolverhampton, and a few hours apart, Robert Lewandowski scored a brace in Barza's 3-0 win over Elche to climb to the top of LaLiga Santander, albeit momentarily. The azulgranas added 16 points, one more than Real Madrid, who will visit Atlético de Madrid this Sunday at the Cívicas Metropolitano stadium.

The Pole decided to take a fresh look and leave Bayern Munich for this season. He changed countries, leagues, but his goalscoring instinct remains intact. He has eight goals in six games in the domestic championship and is moving away in the fight to be the 'Pichichi'. He got within five of Iago Aspas, the closest pursuer of him. Karim Benzema, the man called to fight for the throne, is injured and has three goals.

Robert also has three goals in the Champions League and is the top scorer along with Haaland and Kylian Mbappé. But in the overall tally, he is still three behind the Norwegian as the season's top scorer. He equals with Neymar (11 goals between Ligue 1, Champions League and French Champions Trophy). The three look at everyone from above.

'Lewan' came to Spain to leave his mark and he is succeeding. He has already scored from the right, left, with his head, doubles, triples, in LaLiga and in the Champions League. He only scored 11 of the 23 that Xavi Hernández's Barza has in the current campaign. But his fight will again be with Haaland. Will he beat him like he did in Germany? That remains to be seen.
