The Norwegian and Borussia Dortmund forward has had a dream start to life in the German Bundesliga.

The teenage marksman swapped Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg for the Westfalendstadion in January and has been devastating since.

 

Erling Haaland netted 10 goals in his first 11 starts since being introduced to the German Bundesliga.

But there is just one other striker to have hit the 10-goal mark in a less amount of matches than Erling Haaland. That honour belongs to former BVB star and Spanish international Paco Alcacer.

Alcacer was never considered as a guaranteed starter but nevertheless managed to reach the 10-goal mark in nearly half of Haalandโ€™s time.

Paco Alcacer: 10 goals in 281 minutes played
Erling Braut Haaland: 10 goals in 540 minutes played

Prior to Paco Alcacer becoming the holder of this honour, it was in possession of Hamburgโ€™s Gert Dรถrfel who managed the feat in 668 minutes.

Funnily enough, the signing of the Norwegian uprising star led to Alcacer having to find another destination. That is why the Spaniard moved back to his home country when he joined Villareal back in January.

His tally before La Liga was temporarily stopped was of just 2 goals in 6 appearances.
