Leverkusen's Karim Bellarabi records quickest goal ever in Bundesliga history | inside World Soccer

Bayer Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi has entered into German football's history books after scoring the fastest goal ever in the Bundesliga en route to a 2-0 win at Borussia Dortmund.


Only nine seconds were on the clock and much of the capacity 80,667 crowd inside the Signal Iduna Park had not yet taken their seats when the net was already rippling.

From the kick-off, the ball made its way via Stefan Kießling, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Son Heung-Min, and Sebastian Boenisch to Bellarabi, who slotted home after nutmegging Matthias Ginter.

The quick goal eclipsed Giováne Élber's 1998 strike and Ulf Kirsten's 2002 goal each coming after eleven seconds.

Dortmund rarely tested Bernd Leno in the Leverkusen goal and Kießling made sure of the win in second-half stoppage time.

"The start to the game hurt, of course," Dortmund coach Jürgen Klopp told reporters. "Leverkusen used their plan, we unfortunately did not.

"We have a lot of work to do. That we were not awake at the beginning I blame on myself.

"Our feeling in the first 25 minutes was influenced dramatically after the early goal."

Ginter added: "I was really surprised at the speed of their first goal. We never really recovered after that."
