In his first match as a Borussia Dortmund player, Jude Bellingham became the youngest goalscorer in club history. Meanwhile, Marco Reus managed to score just three seconds after coming on as a substitute. It was certainly a night for the history books...
Youngest goalscorer: Jude Bellingham became the youngest player to score a goal in a competitive match for BVB. Just 77 days after his 17th birthday, the new arrival from England found the back of the net to make it 2-0 in the cup tie away to MSV Duisburg. The youngster thus broke records previously held by Giovanni Reyna and Nuri Sahin. Reyna was 17 years and 83 days old when he hit the target against Werder Bremen on 4 February 2020. Little did he know that his record for youngest BVB goalscorer in the DFB Cup would only stand for a little over seven months. Nuri Sahin holds the record for the youngest BVB goalscorer in the Bundesliga. Sahin was 17 years and 82 days old when he got on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win away to 1. FC Nuremberg on 26 November 2005. Now he can no longer claim to be the youngest ever Black & Yellow goalscorer.
Youngest double-act: A central-midfield pairing of Bellingham and Reyna meant it was the first time that two 17-year-olds have been named in a Borussia Dortmund starting line-up.
Fastest goal by a substitute: Marco Reus entered the field of play with the clock at 56 minutes and 30 seconds. Action resumed when a free-kick was taken at the 57:02 mark. When the ball crossed the line, the stadium clock read 57:05. It's safe to assume that Reus's goal to make it 5-0 was the fastest goal by a substitute in club history. (br)
