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 minutes into stoppage time to seal a 2-0 victory at Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Kie▀ling's scoring-form starts right off the bat, as he looks to reach double-digit goals for the sixth time in the last seven seasons.

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.

Kie▀ling scored in the 72nd minute of Saturday's 5-3 win over Hamburg SV.

The goal was Kie▀ling's seventh in 12 Bundesliga matches this season, adding three assists along the way. His league goals have come in bunches this season, so he could be on his way to a new goal streak.

Kie▀ling was credited with a goal in the 70th minute of Leverkusen's 2-1 win over TSG Hoffenheim on Friday. Kie▀ling headed in a corner from Gonzalo Castro into the side netting, but the ball slipped through a hole and ended up in the goal, which the referee counted as a score.

It was a bizarre situation, to say the least, as Kie▀ling put his hands on his head in frustration after missing the shot, only to be rewarded with a goal by the referee. Fantasy owners are surely not ones to complain, as they gladly accept Kie▀ling's sixth goal of the year through nine Bundesliga matches.

Kie▀ling scored in the 59th minute during Saturday's 4-1 win over Mainz.

Kie▀ling has been an excellent fantasy performer so far this season, recorded five goals and three assists through six Bundesliga matches. He'll look to keep it going Tuesday against Bielefeld in the German Cup and then Saturday against Hannover 96 when Bundesliga play resumes.
