BUNDESLIGA - Adeyemi's next gala: two records in one evening
Karim Adeyemi just doesn't stop impressing. In the league, the 19-year-old striker has already scored seven goals in nine games for RB Salzburg, and scored on his debut with the German national team.
The Champions League stage is also not too big for the native of Munich, as he once again demonstrated on Wednesday evening yesterday. In the 2-1 win against Lille OSC, Adeyemi scored twice - and set two records on the side.
According to 'Opta', at 19 years and 254 days, he is the youngest German player of all time to have achieved a double in the Champions League. The previous holder of the record was Thomas Moller, who scored twice in a premier league game for FC Bayern at the age of 20 and two days.
Adeyemi scored both goals against Lille from a penalty - he took one of the penalties himself. Combined with the three penalties he took against Sevilla FC on matchday one, it is the fourth time that he was illegally knocked off his feet in the penalty area.
