What better way to commemorate teenage prodigy Jamal Musiala’s 100th appearance than by highlighting the most memorable moments of his remarkable climb to date?
For his first 100 games wearing a Bayern jersey, Musiala has scored about 27 goals and provided 15 assists.
Serge Gnabry and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who were in fine form, benefited from the German international’s most recent moment of fame on Matchday 15 at Schalke.
Top 5 Milestones Of Jamal Musiala
Musiala has been Bayern’s top assist producer this year with six. With nine of his strikes added in, he directly assisted 15 goals, which was more than any other player in Germany in 2022–2023.
In addition, his 12 goals in all competitions are a continental best for youngsters playing in the top five leagues in Europe.
His 21 goal contributions in 22 competitive games (12 goals and 9 assists) equal what he managed in his first 78 outings for FC Bayern. Here are the top 5 milestones of Jamal Musiala.
1. Bayern’s youngest-ever Bundesliga player
Musiala is now causing havoc throughout Germany. He has been directly involved in more goals this season (15 in 15 games) than any other Bayern player and more than any other player in the Bundesliga.
It is hard to believe that the master of attacking midfield only made his Bundesliga debut slightly over two years ago.
Fresh-faced Musiala made league history at Bayern’s prestigious club when he did it at 17 and 115 days.
He replaced Thomas Müller in the 88th minute of a 3-1 victory over Freiburg; a player Musiala had praised as one of the finest in the world at the position he has made his own for Julian Nagelsmann’s team this season as a number 10 behind the forwards.
2. Bayern’s youngest-ever Bundesliga scorer
Young Musiala has an obsession with hogging the spotlight on the field.
He was given a second quick substitute appearance for Bayern in the first game of the 2020–21 season at home against Schalke after continuing to impress then-Bayern coach Hansi Flick during the 2020 summer break.
Musiala scored his first league goal nine minutes after replacing Serge Gnabry. He did it by cutting inside and firing.
At the time, he was 17 years and 205 days old, breaking the record previously held by Mathys Tel, who scored against VfB Stuttgart this season at 17, 136 days.
3. Leaves a mark on the Champions League
With his sharpness and ferocious talent, it would only be a matter of time before Musiala prized open defenses around the continent – and sent even more records tumbling in the process.
He had already racked up three Champions League appearances for Bayern in 20/21 – the reigning European champions that season – before netting for the first time in the competition away at Lazio in February 2021.
A tidy finish from the edge of the box gave Bayern an excellent second goal in a 4-1 last-16 first-leg win.
4. Euro Euphoria
Jogi Löw, a former head coach of the German national team, was initially drawn to Musiala because of his unceasing creative spark and maturity beyond his years.
Musiala earned his debut for Germany in a 3-0 victory over Iceland during the following international break in March 2021 after choosing Germany over England in a tug-of-war over his allegiances.
This made his inclusion in the German team for the postponed Euro 2020 competition in the summer of 2021 possible. In the 82nd minute, Musiala was called off the bench.
Germany was about to be eliminated from the competition after falling behind Hungary 2-1 in Munich in the thrilling group stage decider.
He was instrumental in setting up Leon Goretzka for the crucial equalizer that gave Germany the win two minutes later.
5. Seals Bundesliga’s title for Bayern
By the end of his second season with Bayern, Musiala was steadily securing a coveted spot in the all-star lineup of the Munich club.
This Saturday evening in late April will forever be remembered as the turning point in his terrifying journey to fame.
Musiala scored a late goal with precision at home against archrival Borussia Dortmund after coming off the bench to win Der Klassiker 3-1.
Bayern won their 10th straight Bundesliga title with the game’s decisive goal, setting off wild celebrations at the Allianz Arena.
