Those who bet on Robert Lewandowski to score against Schalke on Saturday could celebrate with their winnings after the 5-0 victory, but the odds would not have been particularly high. The Pole loves to score against the Royal Blues, picking up 19 goals in 22 appearances in this fixture. He's only scored more against Wolfsburg (21).
Calm under pressure: Robert Lewandowski found the net after just six minutes. He was never going to miss the chance from seven meters.
His goal also broke a long-standing record: he'd already scored in his last nine Bundesliga games against Schalke. Only former Schalke player Klaus Fischer has achieved this feat against one team (1969-1974 versus Stuttgart).
With two goals in the first two matchdays of the year Lewandowski has seamlessly continued his strong form into the second half of the season - the winter break groin operation is not holding him back. The Munich star is leading the Bundesliga top scorer list with 21 goals, another historic high. Only the legendary Gerd Müller (1972/73) scored this many after 19 matchdays, and no one has scored more.
A season for the history books: Robert Lewandowski broke a number of records in the first round of matches and climbed higher in the all-time top scorer list👇.
