Napoli 1-1 Red Bull Salzburg: Erling Haaland scores as Napoli held to draw

Erling Haaland scores
Erling Haaland has scored more goals in his first four Champions League games than any other player managed in their opening four (seven)

Erling Haaland scored again for Red Bull Salzburg, preventing Napoli from becoming the first team to qualify for the Champions League last 16.

The Norwegian, 19, became just the fourth player in Champions League history to score in his first four games.

His spot-kick gave Red Bull Salzburg the lead after 11 minutes before Napoli's Hirving Lozano equalised.

Napoli would have qualified for the last 16 with a victory.

Instead, the Italian side drop to second in the group - a point behind leaders Liverpool, who recorded a 2-1 victory over Belgian side Genk at Anfield.

Haaland, born in Leeds, announced himself on the European stage with a hat-trick against Genk on his debut in September.

He has added four goals since then, taking his total to seven and becoming the first player to score more than six goals in the opening four group games in a Champions League campaign since Lionel Messi did so for Barcelona in 2016-17.

Haaland is also just the second teenager to score in four Champions League appearances in a row, following in the footsteps of French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe.
