Havertz Sets Bundesliga Record With Winning Goal Against Freiburg

Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz set a new Bundesliga record with his match-winning goal against Freiburg on Friday.
After flicking the ball on to Leon Bailey, the 20-year-old charged forward to receive the return pass and slotted past Freiburg goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow to round off an impressive team move.

The goal is Havertz’s 35th in the Bundesliga since his debut in 2016 and he is the first player to hit that tally before the age of 21. He is now closing in on Leverkusen’s top 10 scorers of all time – he needs just seven to catch 10th-placed former Leverkusen star Oliver Neuville.

In this calendar year, he has been the most productive player in Europe’s top five leagues, scoring nine goals and assisting a further four.

Havertz, who has been playing as a centre-forward recently, has been on fire since the Bundesliga returned earlier this month. Friday evening’s strike was his fifth in the four games Peter Bosz’s side have played and his 15th in 38 appearances in all competitions this season.
