Haaland Secures Man. City’s Place in the Champions League last 16


Erling Haaland brushed off injury concerns to secure Manchester City’s place in the Champions League last 16 as he scored twice in a 3-0 win over Young Boys at the Etihad.

Haaland recovered after twisting his ankle in Saturday’s 6-1 thrashing of Bournemouth in the Premier League and opened the scoring for last season’s treble winners from the penalty spot after 23 minutes.

Phil Foden doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time after a graceful run before Haaland struck from 25 yards six minutes into the second period to seal City’s fourth victory from four in their Champions League defence.
