Enough to leave its mark a little more on the recent history of the German championship.

Because as reported Mundo Deportivo, this is the very first time in twenty years that a Bundesliga player has achieved the performance of scoring at least two goals in eight separate matches, for his very first season in Germany. The last man to achieve such a performance was former Austrian star Anton Polster, when he played for Cologne in 1993-94.

Bundesliga top scorer
