Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski sets new record in the Bundesliga.

The records keep coming for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski. Against Eintracht Frankfurt, the Polish goalscorer recorded a hat-trick to reach 10 goals scored in the 2020/21 Bundesliga season so far. His three-goal performance allows him to become the first player in league history to reach 10 goals scored in just five matches. This adds yet another accomplishment to Lewandowski’s career at Bayern.

Another multi-goal performance

Lewandowski has already recorded three multi-goal performances for Bayern this season in the Bundesliga. He produced a four-goal performance against Hertha Berlin on matchday three and then followed up with a brace against Arminia Bielefeld on matchday four. His streak of multi-goal matches increased to three against Frankfurt with the hat-trick. Of course, all three matches ended in victories for Bayern.

After a terrific campaign during the 2019/20 season, Lewandowski is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon in his goal production. He remains the top striker in the world and appears ready to contend for more individual awards.

A Torjägerkanone record?

At this rate, Lewandowski is going to set the Bundesliga record for most goals scored in a single season. If Bayern’s striker records 10 goals every five matches for the remainder of the season then he would finish with over 60 goals. Although this is unlikely to occur, he only needs to score 41 goals to set the record. He’s on the right path to accomplishing a record season and it’s likely there are more multi-goal performances to come.

When it comes to all-time goals scored in a Bundesliga career, Lewandowski is closing in on Klaus Fischer’s 268 goals.

Currently, he is at 249 goals scored throughout his career in the German top flight. Lewandowski’s next goal in the Bundesliga will be his 250th goal and another one closer to recording the second-most goals all-time in the history of the league. Former Bayern player Gerd Müller holds the record at 365 goals.

Taking command of the Torjägerkanone race

The race for the Torjägerkanone is being dominated by Lewandowski. After scoring just one goal in his first two league appearances, the Polish striker has risen up the standings in the last few weeks to take the lead. Andrej Kramaric and Erling Braut Haaland remain contenders at the moment but are beginning to allow Lewandowski to pull away. A few more multi-goal performances from Lewandowski and the rest of the field might be fighting for second place for the remainder of the season.
