He meets and hits and hits. Robert Lewandowski is currently hampered by any defense of the Bundesliga. Gradually, the question arises whether he can even crack the 40 goals of Gerd Muller.
Record: Robert Lewandowski is currently playing for Bayern as he wants.
With a new record Robert Lewandowski said goodbye to the national team of Poland. As the first player in Bundesliga history, the 31-year-old scored 11 consecutive matches. An almost unbelievable run, which is not interrupted at least by the upcoming engagement on the bar, the scorer moves this on the winter break.
Is Gerd Muller's record at risk?
He has already scored 16 goals in the current season and is slowly wondering how many he can create in 2019/20. The historic 40 of the biggest scorer ever of 1971/72? "I thought Gerd Muller's record is eternal, but he's now the first to get into the frontier areas that could jeopardize this record," Chief Executive Officer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge does not exclude the achievement of this brand because: "It's amazing that he scores one to three goals in each game."
Lewandowski: "I'm very happy with how it works"
Speaking of 16 goals in eleven games: so many reach Lewandowski in the duels with his former club Borussia Dortmund. Also the one record, as well as the twelve in the recent six games against BVB. Such a series has never had a player against a previous club. The kicker named him the "player of the match" after Saturday's 4-0 draw. The four-time winner of the kicker scorer gun received this honor for the 43rd time and equaled with the previous front runners Marco Reus, Franck Ribery and Claudio Pizarro. No wonder Lewandowski says, "I'm very happy with how it works."
However, he puts the team success after the change of coach from Niko Kovac to Hansi Flick in the foreground. "We played great, we got the game under control, we could do a lot better in a short time, not everything is perfect, but now we have time and peace to improve our game of possession."
When Lewandowski returns from the national match, he enters the Bundesliga with Bayern at Fortuna Dusseldorf. His amazing record against the Rhinelander: four games, zero goals.
