What an impressive rate: Robert Lewandowski handed Bayern an early lead in Saturday's 3-1 victory away to Mainz, scoring his 150th goal in 179 Bundesliga matches for FC Bayern. Only eight players have scored so many goals for one club in Bundesliga history, the only two Bayern players being Gerd Müller and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. However, no player reached this mark as early as Lewandowski.

Celebrating his landmark goal: No player needed as few matches for 150 goals for one club as Lewandowski.

Only Gerd Müller achieved the same number

It was not the only record for Lewandowski on Saturday. The Poland captain scored his 22nd goal on Matchday 20. Only Gerd Müller achieved the same number in the Bundesliga's 57-year history. The Bayern legend scored 22 goals in the first 20 matches in the 1972/73 campaign.
