Dortmund's Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan, Reus reach 100 goal contributions

Borussia Dortmund's attacking trio has clocked up 100 goal contributions in all competitions after just 36 matches.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reached the century milestone in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Mkhitaryan set up both goals and Reus struck one in the 2-0 win against FC Porto.

Armenia international Mkhitaryan has now directly contributed to 40 of Dortmund's goal total of 96 after 36 matches in all competitions, scoring 18 and assisting a further 22 goals.

Aubemeyang has hit 30 goals and recorded eight assists, while Reus lifted his goals tally to 16 against Porto and has set up six goals.

In Germany, the trio is being chased by Bayern's Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and Douglas Costa, who between them have contributed to 88 goals in 31 matches -- and thus have a slightly better average of 2.84 goal contributions per match to Dortmund's 2.78.

However, the unofficial German definition of an assist differs to Opta, the official statisician of the Bundesliga. Players who are fouled prior to a penalty or a free kick, which leads to a goal, are not given an assist by Opta. So unofficial assist figures are always slightly higher, enabling Dortmund to break the 100 barrier.

BVB's attacking trio is still a long way off Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, who share 143 goal contributions between them in all competitions. Suarez is leading the way with 40 goals and 15 assists.
