Thanks to his powerful equalising header, the Polish star is now on 29 league goals for the season and clearly leads the Bundesliga goalscoring charts.

And Lewy still has four more away games to surpass this total. Incidentally, the attacker played his 365th competitive game for FC Bayern on Saturday, drawing level with Board Member for Sport Hasan Salihamidžić. Amongst all non-German players to have played for the club, only David Alaba (431) and Franck Ribéry (425) have played more times for FC Bayern.
