A recent viral video of Erling Haaland and Leon Goretzka during Manchester City’s clash against Bayern Munich has sparked a debate among football fans. The video clip shows Haaland and Goretzka in an exchange, and fans believe they know what happened – that Haaland ‘farted’ around Goretzka, who is seen holding his nose and stepping away from his opponent.
The exchange happened during the Champions League quarterfinal match between Man City and Bayern Munich, which the Blues won 4-1 on aggregate, booking their spot in the semifinals. In the first leg, they thrashed their German counterparts 3-0 at the Etihad, and drew 1-1 in the return leg at the Allianz Arena.
Haaland scored on his return to Germany, and weeks after the match, the video of the Norwegian phenom has gone viral on social media. Fans cannot get enough of the hilarious moment between Haaland and Goretzka, and it has sent social media into overdrive.
There have been various reactions to the video, with some fans jokingly calling Haaland “Erling Fartland” or “Erling Fart Haaland.” Others have suggested that Haaland explained to Goretzka about his stomach upset and touched his stomach to let him know he did not do it intentionally.
While the incident has sparked a lot of fun and laughter online, Haaland’s form on the pitch has been no laughing matter for his opponents. The 22-year-old has scored a staggering 49 goals in all competitions this season as Man City continues to fight on three fronts. He scored his side’s fourth goal in their 4-1 win over Arsenal in midweek, and his goals have helped Man City reach the Champions League semifinals, where they face Real Madrid.
In conclusion, while we cannot be sure what happened between Haaland and Goretzka during the match, it is clear that Haaland’s form on the pitch has been nothing short of exceptional. His goals have been instrumental in Man City’s success this season, and fans will be hoping for more of the same in the games to come.
