Erling Haaland scored a sensational hat-trick in his first game for Borussia Dortmund after coming on as a substitute, helping his new team to come from behind to beat Augsburg 5-3.

Augsburg were leading 1-0 at the break thanks to a goal from Florian Niederlechner and went 2-0 up shortly after the break when Marco Richter scored a screamer.

Julian Brandt then pulled one back for Dortmund before Niederlechner gave Augsburg a 3-1 lead with his second goal after 55 minutes.

BVB coach Lucien Favre reacted by bringing on Erling Haaland, who has joined the club from RB Salzburg this month, and the substitution quickly paid off as the 19-year-old smashed the ball past Tomas Koubek with 59 minutes on the clock.

Jadon Sancho equalised two minutes later before Haaland gave Dortmund the lead after Thorgan Hazard unselfishly squared the ball across goal to the young striker.

Haaland then completed his hat-trick after 79 minutes and rounded off a sensational debut as he made it 5-3 after Marco Reus found him with a through ball.
