With 18 Bundesliga goals, it's hard to decide which ones to feature.

Through seventeen games in the Bundesliga this season, Borussia Dortmund has scored 47 times. 18 of those goals have come off the foot of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. That amounts for 38% of Dortmund's total league goal output. With the Bundesliga in the midst of its traditional holiday break, let's take a look back at some of Aubameyang's best goals of the season.

The Gabonese international's first goal of the season came in the Bundesliga opener against Borussia Monchengladbach. Aubameyang glanced home a header off a perfect cross from Marcel Schmelzer.

And who could forget his record breaking goal: a second half equalizer against which saw Auba become the first Bundesliga player EVER to score in the first six matches of the season. A brilliant cross by Mats Hummels met the chest of Henrikh Mkhitaryan who forced the ball to Aubameyang for one of the best team goals you will see.

Another Aubameyang equalizer came against Darmstadt. Shinji Kagawa sent in a cross which was kept in at the touch line by Matthias Ginter. Ginter sent a ball through the box to a waiting Aubameyang who made no mistake in finishing to equalize.

Aubameyang registered a hat-trick against Augsburg back in October. His first two strikes were tap-ins at the back post, but his goal to complete the trifecta was a thing of beauty. Receiving a pass in tight quarters, Aubameyang maintained possession after being swarmed by defender, and sent a shot off the outside of his foot into the back of the net.

With eighteen goals under his belt so far, and an entire second half of the season to add to his impressive total, fans can expect more of the same classy and composed finishes from Aubameyang.
