Goretzka's maiden goal sets Bayern on their way

Postby FCBayernNews » Wed Nov 27, 2019 1:35 am

Leon Goretzka broke the deadlock in FC Bayern's 6-0 Champions League victory away to Red Star Belgrade, scoring a very special goal. 13 minutes had been played when the midfielder rose to meet Philippe Coutinho's pinpoint cross, scoring his maiden Champions League goal in his 13th match, his header sailing into the top left corner of the net.

"It was a special moment for me, it's the competition I always dreamed of as a kid," the 24-year-old said after the final whistle. After 12 matches without a goal, Bayern's number 18 scored: "It finally worked, and I'm very glad about it!"

It came as no surprise that Goretzka's first goal was a header. The Germany international has been wearing the FC Bayern jersey since the beginning of the 2018/19 season, scoring four of his 11 competitive goals for the German record champions with his head. Only Robert Lewandowski (16) has scored more headed goals for FCB since then. "It was a superb cross from Philippe, the timing was superb, and I was a bit lucky that it went in," Goretzka commented on his maiden goal.
