Champions League: Nine teams reach last 16, Morata tops scorers table


Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland, Juventus’ Álvaro Morata, and Marcus Rashford of Manchester United are 2020/21 UEFA Champions League joint top scorers with six goals apiece.

Haaland had been out in front with six goals from four games, but did not feature in Dortmund’s 1-1 draw with Lazio on Matchday 5.

Morata and Rashford, meanwhile, added a goal each to their tallies to join the young Norwegian at the top of the pile.

6 goals: Morata (Juventus), Haaland (Dortmund), Rashford (Manchester United)
