Dortmund-Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen's Karim Bellarabi hit the Bundesliga's fastest ever goal to help condemn title hopefuls Borussia Dortmund to a 2-0 defeat in their opening game on Saturday.


The Leverkusen attacker struck after just nine seconds and then set up Stefan Kiessling in injury time as the visitors won in Dortmund for the second season in a row.


Bellarabi’s strike was two seconds quicker than the previous record held by Bayern Munich's Giovane Elber and Leverkusen’s Ulf Kirsten, both of whom scored in the 11th second of a Bundesliga game.


The visitors needed just three passes after the kick-off to find the net. Sebastian Boenisch picked out Bellarabi on the edge of the penalty area and he turned inside Matthias Ginter before firing beyond Mitchell Langerak.

Dortmund were shellshocked and Leverkusen gave them little time to find their rhythm.


New recruit Hakan Calhanoglu drove a free-kick wide for Leverkusen before Boenisch screwed a shot well off target.
