Kiessling scored the match winner in the 49th minute of Bayer Leverkusen's 1-0 win over Hertha Berlin on Wednesday.

After netting 15 times in 32 Bundesliga appearances last season, Kiessling has really struggled to get going this term, as his goal Wednesday was just his fourth in 19 league games.

Kie▀ling got an assist Saturday as Bayer Leverkusen drew 3-3 with VfB Stuttgart.

Kie▀ling gained his first assist of the Bundesliga season when he slid a ball through for Heung-Min Son after just four minutes. However despite taking a 3-0 lead into half-time, his side only left the game with a point. Kie▀ling will always be an attacking threat for Leverkusen and alongside Heung-Min Son and Karim Bellarabi there are sure to be many goals and assists this season. However they will have to rely on their team's defense to be a lot more robust if Leverkusen are to be successful.

Kie▀ling scored and won a penalty as Bayer Leverkusen ran out comfortable 3-1 winners Wednesday against Benfica in Champions League Group C.

Kie▀ling continued his impressive Champions League form with his fourth goal in as many games. He took advantage of Julio Cesar's fumble in the first half to give Leverkusen the lead and then won a penalty when fouled by Benfica's Nivaldo Jardel. A great performance by the striker who will be looking to improve his Bundesliga scoring tally against Paderborn Saturday which currently only stands at one goal.

Kie▀ling scored twice in Bayer Leverkusen's dominant 4-0 triumph over FC Copenhagen on Wednesday.

It was a terrific performance from Kie▀ling and the rest of Leverkusen, who booked their spot into the Champions League group stages with a convincing 7-2 win on aggregate. Kie▀ling, who also scored last weekend in Leverkusen's surprise league win at Borussia Dortmund, appears well on his way to topping his 15-goal haul from last season's Bundesliga campaign, and he'll be looking to make a sizable impact once more in Saturday's clash with Hertha BSC.

Kie▀ling scored five goals during Bayer Leverkusen's 6-0 win over SV Alemannia Waldalgesheim in their DFB Cup match on Friday.

Kie▀ling scored four goals in the first half, including one penalty, and then banged the fifth home in the 59th minute. While it's tough to read too much into a match against a vastly inferior opponent, it's pretty clear that Kie▀ling is ready to hit the ground running for when the Bundesliga season starts Aug. 23 at Borussia Dortmund.
