Berlin, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 19th Jan, 2020 ) :Norwegian rising star Erling Braut Haaland came off the bench to claim a hat-trick inside 20 minutes on his Borussia Dortmund debut and inspire a 5-3 comeback win at Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
It was his sixth hat-trick of the campaign.
Haaland completed his treble when captain Marco Reus played him into the area, slamming the ball home to make it 5-3.
It had been a vastly different game until Haaland's stunning entrance.
Augsburg deserved to be in control, taking advantage of poor Dortmund defending with the opening goal from striker Florian Niederlechner before Marco Richter's stunning long-range strike 20 seconds into the second half.
The game became an end-to-end affair and Niederlechner grabbed Augsburg's third by tapping in.
He wasted little time in making his presence felt to give Dortmund a victory which leaves them fourth in the table, level on points with defending champions Bayern Munich and Schalke, four points behind leaders RB Leipzig, who host Union Berlin later.
Werder Bremen kept a clean sheet for the first time this season as an own goal by Florian Kastenmeier secured a 1-0 win at Fortuna Duesseldorf.
US international Timothy Chandler scored the winner as mid-table Eintracht Frankfurt won 2-1 at Hoffenheim.
