Bilal is the son of former Egyptian international Mazhar Abdelrahman, who wore the shirts of multiple big clubs including French outfit AS and Egypt giants Zamalek.

Five of the eight goals were scored by Bilal Mazhar alone in the 2nd, 30th, 49th, 58th, and 66th minutes as he also grabbed an assist for Leandro Frroku's goal just before half-time.

The five goals put Bilal top of the goalscoring charts one ahead of Barcelona's Víctor Barberá and Oakley Cannonier of , who scored four goals each.

October 5 will see the return-leg in Sofia which will hopefully see the Egyptian score more goals in Europe.
