Paco Alcacer became the first player in Bundesliga history to score 10 goals as a substitute in one season and has since added two more strikes to his record.

Borussia Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer has been on fire since arriving at the German club on loan from Barcelona. He has 12 goals in less than 500 minutes, averaging a goal every 30 minutes, according to Goal.

His current form saw him earn a start in Dortmund’s 2-1 win over Borussia M’gladbach, but the Spanish striker had to leave the pitch with an unfortunate injury. Alcacer was devastated about the right leg injury, holding his face in his hands when he sat on the bench.

Borussia Dortmund – current Bundesliga leaders – has yet to announce the severity of Alcacer’s injury. The club will undoubtedly work to get Alcacer back on the pitch as soon as possible.
