A lot of things have changed in the world over the last few months but Erling Haaland scoring a goal is not one them.

The Borussia Dortmund striker scored the first goal of the 2019-20 Bundesliga restart amid the coronavirus pandemic and he celebrated with social distancing after putting Dortmund 1-0 up against Schalke in the Revierderby.

Haaland scored a superb opener after a clever midfield flick to Thorgan Hazard set up the move, then the Belgian winger crossed perfectly for Haaland to guide home his 10th goal in his first nine Bundesliga games. Hazard had replaced USMNT 17-year-old Gio Reyna who was injured in the warm up ahead of what would have been his first.

Haaland certainly made the most of Hazard’s pinpoint delivery and he was a constant menace as Schalke’s defense just couldn’t handle his movement, runs and physicality.

The Norwegian striker has now scored 42 goals in 39 games during the 2019-20 season for RB Salzburg and Dortmund as the 19-year-old continues to dominate every time he steps on the pitch.

Take a look at the video below to see Haaland doing what he does best to give Dortmund the lead against Schalke.
