The winger broke the deadlock 23 minutes into Leverkusen's clash at Augsburg on Friday night to write his name in the history books as Germany's top division reached the milestone.

The landmark goal was Bellarabi's first of the Bundesliga season despite the German having netted 25 over the course of the last two campaigns in all competitions.

Bellarabi also jointly holds the record for the fastest goal scored in Bundesliga history with his Leverkusen team-mate Kevin Volland.

Both players have netted after just nine seconds, with Bellarabi's coming in a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund during the 2014-15 season.
