28 in 23: Lewandowski emulating record-breaking season
Standing out in this record-breaking attack is no mean feat. With the 4-1 home win against SpVgg Greuther Fürth, FC Bayern have now scored in each of their last 70 games in the Bundesliga, extending the record since detailed data collection begun. No team has ever managed 74 goals after 23 league games in a season either. One man who once again stands out from this special group is Robert Lewandowski. After his brace against the men from Fürth, the 33-year-old Pole is on 28 Bundesliga goals for the campaign - exactly the same number as he had this time last season. In the end, the reigning Best FIFA Men's Player finished with an incredible 41 goals for 2020/21. Will he be able to surpass this magic number? If anyone can, it's LewanGOALski.
Clear daylight in the scoring charts
"We needed too much time to get into it. I tried to wake up the team. We played much better in the second half. I'm always proud when I score a goal. In the second half we showed that we were in it. We want to show our best football again quickly," summed up last season's top scorer, who kept pushing his team and leading the line with his performance. His seven shots on goal resulted in two goals on Sunday afternoon.
Lewy has thus been involved in at least one goal in the last three Bundesliga games (5 goals) and the last four home league matches. With 28 goals, the star striker clearly leads the scoring charts, with Leverkusen's Patrik Schick (20) and Dortmund's Erling Haaland (16) in second and third place. Incidentally, his brace against SGF means Lewy has scored at least once against all 26 Bundesliga teams he has faced since joining FCB in 2014.
