A world-class striker like Robert Lewandowski doesn't need to be told where the goal is. And so in the 48th minute of the match against Arminia Bielefeld, after a long pass from David Alaba, the 32-year-old was able to concentrate fully on his taking the ball under control. Standing with his back to goal, the Pole then spun around and calmly fired into the far corner to half the deficit and leave Bielefeld only leading 2-1.

60% of the vote to Lewandowski

This extremely demanding finish from a technical standpoint also delighted the fans of the record champions, who voted Lewandowski's goal as FC Bayern's February Goal of the Month. With a 60% share of all votes cast, the World Footballer of the Year relegated Jamal Musiala's first-ever goal in the Champions League, scored against Lazio, into second place (22%), while Carolin Simon's free-kick to make it 5-0 against Werder Bremen came in third (11%).

Lewandowski scored the goal of the month against Bielefeld with a goal on the half-turn.

Incidentally, this is Lewandowski's first Goal of the Month award as voted for by Bayern's fans. The goal was his 25th of the season in the Bundesliga and brought up a mini milestone against Bielefeld - but that proved to be only a stepping stone, as the Poland national team captain has already pushed his tally up to 31 goals three games later and continues to strive to break FCB legend Gerd Müller's 40-goal season record.

In his last game, Lewandowski scored a stunning hat-trick against his former club Borussia Dortmund to take his side to a 4-2 win in Der Klassiker:
