Champions League roundup: Håland makes history in Salzburg romp as Barça are held

The Guardian Sports 1 month ago

Erling Braut Håland became the first teenager to score a hat-trick on his Champions League debut since Wayne Rooney in 2004 as Red Bull Salzburg thrashed the Belgian champions, Genk, 6-2 in the Austrian side’s first match in the competition since 1994. The Yorkshire-born Norway international – the son of the former Nottingham Forest, Manchester City and Leeds midfielder Alf-Inge Håland – scored his first in only the second minute before the 19-year-old completed his fourth hat-trick of the season before half-time.

History was also made in Germany as the 16-year-old Ansu Fati became the youngest player to feature in a Champions League game for Barcelona but his side needed a penalty save from Marc‑André Ter Stegen to rescue a 0-0 draw against Borussia Dortmund. Earlier in Group F, Nicolò Barella scored a stoppage‑time equaliser for Internazionale to rescue a 1-1 draw at home to Slavia Prague.

In Group G, Lyon were held to a 1-1 home draw by Zenit St Petersburg. Memphis Depay’s penalty cancelled out Sardar Azmoun’s first-half opener for the Russian champions, while RB Leipzig defeated Benfica 2-1 in Lisbon.

Last season’s semi-finalists Ajax also made a winning start against Lille in Amsterdam, winning 3-0 to go top of Group H.
