Watch: Sancho sets up two Haaland goals in the space of six minutes

The 2020-21 season might not be going to plan for Borussia Dortmund, but there can be no arguing they boast two of Europe’s finest young players in Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland

The two 20-year-olds seem to have a brilliant understanding with one another, but unfortunately combining to score two goals in the space of six minutes wasn’t enough to avoid a 4-2 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday night.

The result saw Gladbach leapfrog Dortmund into the Champions League spots. If they fail to finish in the top four, it would prove disastrous for their prospects of holding onto their brightest young talents for next season.

We’re sure the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Liverpool will be keeping a close eye on proceedings, but they certainly won’t be put off Sancho or Haaland if they keep linking up like this in an otherwise underperforming side.

The first, an early equaliser, is a brilliant pass from Sancho to the Norwegian, who does well to dink it over Yann Sommer from a tight angle. Six minutes later, they combine again, finishing off a brilliant team move with Haaland finishing superbly on the turn.
