Click through the mini-gallery above to see the top five African goalscorers in Bundesliga history.

The 2016 CAF African Player of the Year scored his side's opener in a crazy derby that saw BVB squander a 4-0 half-time lead against Schalke.

It was Aubameyang's first league goal since 14 October, taking his tally for the current campaign to 11 strikes. Overall, the Gabon striker has now scored 96 Bundesliga goals, equalling Anthony Yeboah's record for the African with the most goals in the German top flight.

While Aubameyang has scored his goals in 140 games for Dortmund, Yeboah scored 68 of his league strikes in 123 games for Eintracht Frankfurt and 28 goals in 100 games for Hamburger SV.

Overall, the retired Ghana forward needed 223 games to become the previous record African scorer in Bundesliga history, while Aubameyang reached the record in 83 less matches.
