Last season, Robert Lewandowski proved that he has more to offer than most of the world's goalscorers at the moment. No other attacker in Europe's top leagues came even close to his 55 goals in 2019/20. But of late, the 32-year-old has shown he's more than just a goalscorer.
Turning point thanks to Lewy assist
Thanks to Lewandowski's assist, Bayern were able to lift the UEFA Super Cup high into the Budapest night sky after the game.
Lewandowski assisted two goals for Bayern in their opening match against Schalke, and it was once again the number 9 who, with a clever assist, saw a turnaround in fortunes in the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla. Thirty-four minutes had passed in Budapest when the exceptional striker handed the ball on a plate to Leon Goretzka with a deft and technically extremely difficult pass. The latter scored to level the game at a crucial time. "This goal brought us back into the game," coach Hansi Flick stated.
Six assists in six games
Lewandowksi has no problem with leaving the stage to his teammates, shining not just as a goalscorer but also as a provider.
For the sixth time in six matches, Lewandowski proved that he has an eye to pick out his teammates to get them into goalscoring positions - including his 'Rabona' in the Bundesliga's opening fixture, which was greeted with astonishment even outside the German top tier. With three assists in total so far this season, he's teed up teammates just as often as he's scored himself.
"World class" Lewandowski
Last season's treble top scorer was denied a goal of his own this time around, but his part in the trophy win was once again huge. After all, Lewandowski can do more than just put away goals himself. In fact, Flick described Lewy's assist to make it 1-1 as "world class". An attribute that is currently more than justified for the centre-forward's incredible performances.
