Robert Lewandowski scores and scores and scores, and his two goals in the 6-0 victory over VfL Wolfsburg meant he set yet another record. He surpassed Claudio Pizarro in the Bundesliga's all-time scorer rankings, which makes him the most prolific non-German scorer in the German top flight. The Poland captain now boasts 197 Bundesliga goals, two ahead of the Peruvian.

Lewandowski scored 123 of these goals wearing FCB colours, lying third in the club's rankings. Only Gerd Müller (365) and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (162) have scored more Bundesliga goals.

“They're true legends and now my name is among them. That makes me very happy,” added the striker, who has no intention of resting on his laurels. “How many goals is it to second place?” was his first question after hearing the statistic. “That’s the next step, I must keep going.” Lewandowski has not seen enough in terms of records.
