Borussia Dortmund vs. PSG score, Champions League highlights: Haaland makes history as German side gets edge

The 19-year-old Norwegian scored twice for his new team in the round of 16 matchup

Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain saved the excitement for the latter half of their Champions League round of 16 first leg. Recently acquired Erling Haaland was the hero for Dortmund as the German side beat PSG 2-1 at home Tuesday. All three goals -- two by Haaland and one from PSG superstar Neymar -- came in a nine-minute span in the second half.

Haaland, the 19-year-old Norwegian sensation, opened the scoring in the 69th minute after poaching a deflected shot from a teammate and converting into a goal.

Take a look:

The shot also made history. Haaland became the first player ever to score a goal for two different teams in the same Champions League season. Of course, it helps that this is the first year that a player arriving during the winter transfer period was allowed to participate in Champions League matches for their new team. Haaland scored eight goals during Champions League group play this season for his former club, Red Bull Salzburg.

Another bit of history from Dortmund came with subbing on Gio Reyna, who became the youngest American to play in the European competition.

PSG did not stay down for long, however. Poor defending from Dortmund allowed the star duo of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar pick up an equalizer shortly after Haaland's goal.

Neymar's equalizer didn't faze Halaand and Dortmund. A powerful charge towards goal resulted in yet another goal for Haaland, this time from a powerful blast outside of the box for one of the best strikes of the UCL season.

The closest PSG came to a late equalizer was an attempt from Neymar in injury time, but the French side couldn't capitalize. These two teams will meet again on March 11 with a spot in the quarterfinals on the line.

A relatively uneventful first half given the scoring acumen of both sides. Sancho came the closest with his curling shot but that's pretty much it.

A light tap from Can sends the Argentinian winger sprawling on the ground. The referee gives Can a firm talking to--for what, I have no clue--but does not produce any cards.

Can falls after Verratti pokes the ball away from him in the box. The crowd wanted a call, but no call came.

Haaland heads a PSG corner clear, giving the home side a chance to counter. Seconds later, with a five-on-three advatage, Sancho carries it to the edge of the box but then misses his shot wide. He had open teammates.

Neymar goes down well after a defender attempted a challenge. Nevertheless, the referee awards a free kick, but it curls wide of the near post.

6' Frantic energy from both sides

While not exactly the cleanest game so far, both PSG and Dortmund have shown desperate attacks in an attempt to try and strike first early. But each defense has held firm.

And we're off!

Dortmund starts off with the ball.

Tuchel returns to his former home

Tuchel knows the challenges Signal Iduna Park will present for his club, which has struggled in Europe despite having one of the wealthiest and most talented squads over the last handful of years. 
"It's always difficult to control your emotions, even more so here. I am not sure that it will be possible for 90 minutes. We will therefore need to play with intelligence and not get caught up in the emotion," Tuchel said in his pre-match press conference. "But for a few phases of the game, we will need to have the possibility to adapt and battle. It will be a match of a very high level, so we will need to be calm, attentive and intelligent."
