Report as Sevilla, the reigning Europa League champions, took the lead but were met by an Erling Haaland double; Second leg: March 9, Signal Iduna Park (8pm)

Erling Haaland scored twice as Borussia Dortmund ended Sevilla’s winning streak with a 3-2 victory in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League.

The hosts took the lead early through Suso Fernandez but Dortmund rallied with a goal by Mahmoud Dahoud and Haaland’s double before half-time at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. Luuk de Jong scored Sevilla’s late second goal to improve the Spanish team’s chances in the return leg.

The win ended Sevilla’s strong run and put Dortmund back on track after a series of poor results that had left coach Edin Terzic under pressure in Germany. Before this win, Dortmund had won only one of their last six German league matches. Meanwhile, Sevilla’s last loss in all competitions had been a 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid on January 12.
