Bundesliga: Haaland Scores 4 In 5-2 Hertha Riot

European Golden Boy award winner, Erling Haaland scored 4 goals as Borussia Dortmund routed Hertha Berlin 5-2 to trim Bayern Munich's lead at the top of the table to just a point on Saturday.

AllNews understands that Erling Braut Haaland netted four goals and Youssoufa Moukoko became the youngest player in Bundesliga history.

It was the first time the 20-year-old Haaland had scored four goals in a game for Dortmund since his January debut, with all of them coming in the second half.

"I drank a Red Bull at half time, I got some wings and everything was good," said Haaland.

The Norwegian now has 10 goals in seven Bundesliga matches this season to give him a total of 31 goals in 30 games in all competitions for Dortmund.

After Matheus Cunha gave Hertha a first-half lead at Berlin's Olympic Stadium, Dortmund roared back.

Haaland equalised when he tapped home an Emre Can pass on 47 minutes.

He grabbed his second two minutes later with perfect timing to slip his marker and fire in a Julian Brandt pass.

Haaland wrapped up his hat-trick on 62 minutes, just before Raphael Guerreiro stabbed the ball home from close range to make it 4-1.

Cunha converted a late penalty, but the night belonged to Haaland who finished a move he started with 10 minutes to play.

There was still time for history to be made as Moukoko made a late cameo off the Dortmund bench to replace Haaland.

One day after his 16th birthday, Moukoko is the youngest player in Bundesliga history.

"He's only just turned 16 -- that is amazing," Haaland said of Moukoko. "He has a big career ahead of him."

Dortmund's romp in Berlin moved them second in the standings, behind defending champions Bayern who stayed top despite a 1-1 home draw with Werder Bremen.
