The young Arsenal attacker scored one goal and also provided two assists as he helped the Gunners to an emphatic 3-0 win over their German opponents.
He was given his first Premier League start by Unai Emery during the penultimate game at home to newly promoted side Aston Villa.
His second Premier League start came against Manchester United on Monday night at the age of 18 years and 125 days thus making him the youngest player to start a game between Manchester United and Arsenal in the Premier League era.
He celebrated that record with an assist for the second half goal scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The goal cancelled out the opener from Scott McTominay.
