Bayern wonderkid Musiala breaks goalscoring record in Schalke rout


Jamal Musiala Bayern

Bayern Munich wonderkid Jamal Musiala became the club's youngest-ever goalscorer in the Bundesliga with his late strike in an8-0 thumping of Schalke on Friday.

Musiala received the ball on the left wingbefore cutting inside on to his right foot, driving into the penalty areaand firing a low shotin at the near post.

The German-born England youth international spent eight years with Chelsea's academy before moving to Bayern's youth setup in 2019.

He made his professional and Bundesliga debut for the Bavarians against Freiburg in June, becoming the club's youngest player to feature in the German top division.

Bayernstarted theirdefence of theirBundesligatitle in ominous fashion with Serge Gnabry's hat-trick helped them to a stunning eight-goal victory.

A mere 26 days after winning theChampions League, Hansi Flick'sside showed no signs of tiredness and powered into a fourth-minute lead thanks to Gnabry's superb strike.

That was added to by Leon Goretzka after 19 minutes before Robert Lewandowski swept home a third from the penalty spot shortly after the half-hour mark.

Gnabry completed his hat-trick with two goals inside the opening 15 minutes of the second half before Thomas Muller,Leroy Sane - making his debut following his July move fromManchester City- andMusiala completed Schalke's humiliation.

Several other milestones were achieved during the thrashing with veteran Thomas Mullerscoring his 200th competitive goal for the club, with only three players getting more since Bayern were promoted to the top division in 1965.

Star striker Robert Lewandowski scored his 163rd Bundesliga goal for the club, overtaking Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, with only Gerd Muller (365) recordingmore.

Flying winger Serge Gnabry hit the earliest goal in a Bundesliga opener for 18 years - with this fourth-minute goal equalling Torsten Frings' strike in 2002.
