Mathys Tel scored his first Bundesliga goal against VfB Stuttgart, replacing Jamal Musiala as Bayern's youngest goalscorer in history. All in all, the young Frenchman only manages fourth place because other players - mostly from BVB - also started taking pictures very early on. We take a look at the top 10.
Age at the first goal: 16 years, 28 daysBVB striker Youssoufa Moukoko was already ahead of his age in the youth classes and has scored an incredible number of goals year after year. The center forward made his Bundesliga debut shortly after his 16th birthday and it took him less than a month to score his first goal. On December 18, 2020 at 1: 2 at Union Berlin the time had come. A record for eternity?
Age at the first goal: 17 years, 1 month, 3 days Florian Wirtz is second in the rankings, scored his first goal in the 2-4 win against Bayern (June 6, 2020), but was a good year older than Moukoko. On the other hand, the Leverkusen player was able to establish himself directly in the Bundesliga and enchants the fans with his technique and creativity. In Leverkusen you can hardly wait for the top talent to return after his cruciate ligament rupture.
Age at first goal: 17 years, 2 months, 21 daysThird place goes to another BVB player. Nuri Sahin made it into the professional team from his own youth and played so well that Real Madrid bought him. It's a shame that his career didn't go quite so well. With his debut goal against 1. FC Nürnberg on November 26, 2005, he was the youngest Bundesliga goalscorer of all time at the time. Otherwise, Sahin shone more as a strategist in central midfield.
Age at the first goal: 17 years, 4 months, 14 days Mathys Tel has not yet received that many Bundesliga minutes, but scored promptly in his first start against VfB Stuttgart. Munich signed the top French talent for a lot of money in the summer and hope that he will mature into a world-class striker. The start is promising.
Age at the first goal: 17 years, 6 months, 12 daysDraxler showed in his first appearances that he has enormous potential and was able to assert himself straight away. The attacking midfielder scored for the first time in the 2-0 win against St. Pauli on April 1, 2011. A world career seemed to be inevitable early on. However, Draxler was not quite able to meet the high expectations.
Age at first goal: 17 years, 6 months, 16 days The attacker caused a sensation early on with his pace and his desire to score. Although he was only able to establish himself as a top striker in Leipzig, he also showed some great approaches at VfB Stuttgart. This was also the case with his first goal in the 1-1 draw against Frankfurt in September 2013.
Age at the first goal: 17 years, 6 months, 23 years Musiala refutes the belief that young talent cannot assert themselves at Bayern Munich. The attacking midfielder shone right from the start with his great technique and was just as dangerous in goals. Musiala scored his first goal in the 8-0 win over Schalke 04 on matchday one of the 2020/21 season. Other booths should follow quickly.
Age at first goal: 17 years, 6 months, 30 days Christian Pulisic is the fourth Dortmunder to appear in this ranking. The tricky American winger scored his first goal in April 2016 in the 3-0 win against Hamburg. The offensive player is currently playing for Chelsea FC, but it is difficult for him to play there regularly.
Age at first goal: 17 years, 8 months, 1 day Lars Ricken is always associated with his famous Champions League final goal. He also showed great performances in other games at a young age. For example on March 11, 1994, when he scored in the 2-1 win against Duisburg. At this point, Ricken was the youngest Bundesliga goalscorer in history. Today he makes sure that 50 percent of the top 10 consists of Dortmunders.
