Timo Werner can do it all – score goals, provide assists, create attacks, and stay modest!

“In the first half it was a good performance from all of us,” said Timo after the 3-2 win over FC Augsburg, a game in which our number 11 was directly involved in all the goals, finding the back of the net twice and providing the assist for Kevin Kampl’s goal.

He’s no stranger to a brace, but last year, Timo wrote his name in the history books.

100 goals for RBL 

3rd October 2022: Timo Werner scored a brace against VfL Bochum and became the first player in RB Leipzig history to score 100 goals for the club. Remarkably, Timo achieved the milestone in just 169 games! After two more goals this weekend, our number 11 is now on 111 goals for the club.

“It makes me really proud. I’ve been able to play in a lot of successful games for this club,” said Timo. “I’m pleased that I’m the first player to reach 100 goals – not only for myself, but also for RB Leipzig.”

Given what Timo has achieved for RB Leipzig, a commemoration for our number 11 was due. The forward recently became the third player to be immortalised with a graffiti art piece on the WallofFame at the Red Bull Arena.

Timo follows Yussuf Poulsen and Emil Forsberg on the wall with a TW11 piece accompanied by the number 100.

“It means a lot to me” – Timo Werner

  • “Even though I never set any goalscoring targets for myself, it means a lot to me to be the first player to score 100 goals for RB Leipzig. Of course, I want to score as many goals as possible. If I manage 120, I’ll take it. If I reach 150, I’ll take that too.

    I’m happy with every goal I score and above all that they are so valued here by the fans and within the club. 

    The graffiti at the Red Bull Arena is really impressive and it’s really cool to be commemorated in that way at the stadium.”

100 goals for RBL!

No stranger to a brace

When he joined Leipzig ahead of the 2016/17 season, Werner had already scored 13 times in the Bundesliga for VfB Stuttgart; a number that was going to grow throughout his time as a Red Bull.

The forward scored 21 Bundesliga goals in his first season with the club, opening his goal tally for the club with a brace in the 4-0 away win over Hamburger SV on 17th September 2016.

It was the first of many braces in a Leipzig shirt. To date, Werner has found the back of the net twice in the same game on 23 occasions. He’s also scored four hat-tricks, including three in the 2019/20 season: all three goals in the 3-1 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach and one in each of the wins over Mainz 05 (8-0 at home and 5-0 away).

Back with a bang

Timo’s most recent hat-trick for the club came not too long ago. His first three-goal performance of his second spell at the club came in the 8-0 win over Teutonia 05 Ottensen in the first round of the DFB-Pokal. His two goals last time out against Augsburg was also his second brace of the season.

His second of the two, and the team’s third on the day, was the 100th Bundesliga goal of Timo’s career (87 came for RBL). The 27-year-old is among the ten youngest players to reach the milestone and is one of only three current Bundesliga players to have scored 100 goals in the league, alongside Marco Reus and Thomas Müller.

After two years in the Premier League with Chelsea, Timo is back in Leipzig and has hit the ground running upon his return to Leipzig, scoring 16 goals in 33 games

Legacy as club record scorer continues

Timo’s status as club record goal scorer is set to live on for a while. His 111 goals are significantly clear of second-place Daniel Frahn (87) and Yussuf Poulsen (84).

With a contract until 2026, Timo still has time to grow his tally. So much is certain – our record goalscorer has no plans of stopping any time soon.
