Golostroj Haaland also shot down Sevilla. He could easily score a hat-trick, said Guardiola perfectionistically

Haaland quite possibly led him a little astray, because the Spanish strategist expressed himself somewhat sparingly about him before the opening match of the millionaire competition. “We cannot win the Champions League if we only rely on Erling. He can certainly help us, but his teammates must complement him,” Guardiola said at the press conference.

However, the Norwegian goal machine ignored any doubts and continued his respectable form from the league among the European elite, in which he netted ten times in six games. Against Sevilla, he opened the scoring after twenty minutes of play when he capitalized on a millimeter pass from Kevin de Bruney, then in the 67th minute he managed to make it 3-0 thanks to a great choice of place and the stop of a shot by Phil Foden. “And he could easily have added another goal,” despite the two-goal contribution, the traditionally demanding Guardiola did not let his charge dry.

City captain Kevin de Bruyne did not spare words of praise for his colleague. “So far, he is adapting to our specific style of play very quickly, it is a perfect start to his new engagement. I’m looking forward to playing with me and the other players even more,” said the Belgian playmaker, who won the man of the match award for his performance against Sevilla.

So far, it really looks like bringing Haaland to the Etihad Stadium has been a real hit in the ass. To recap – the 22-year-old gunner has scored twelve times in eight competitive duels so far, which are really admirable numbers. Citizens fans are hoping that the Norwegian striker is the last piece in the mosaic that will lead their team to the dream trophy for the Champions League winners. It must be added that if Haaland maintains his established performance, these dreams may soon become reality.
