After a poor pre-season in terms of results, Bayern Munich has enjoyed a very good start to the new campaign. The German Champions remain unbeaten across all competitions, which included impressive victories against Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona in cup competitions. The defending Bundesliga champions also convincingly defeated RB Leipzig last season.

Robert Lewandowski has played a major part in Die Roten’s good start to the season. The Polish striker has consistently found back of the net across all competitions, which also includes a hattrick against Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga. In six games across all competitions, Lewandowski has already scored ten goals.

The last two seasons have seen Lewandowski take his game to the next level. He has been by far the best number nine in the world. His goal helped Rekordmeister to win a record sextuple. He also managed to break Gerd Muller’s record of most goals scored in a single Bundesliga season by scoring 41 goals in the league last season.

The Poland international is ageing like a fine wine. While talking to SportBild this week (via, Lewandowski admitted that he is currently enjoying the best form of his life. He is also eager to play at the top level for a considerable time after turning 33 this year.

"“I feel like I’m 25 or 26. My numbers now at age 33 are better than ever. Not just in terms of fitness; every metric out on the pitch is better than it’s ever been in my career.”“After a four-week break over the summer, going into pre-season I had a better foundation than I’ve ever had in my career. Thirty-three is just a number. For me, it doesn’t show how old I really am. I can still play for many more years. I’m physically fit and I’ve got the right mentality, too.”"

Die Roten’s strong resolve in 2018 made sure that Lewandowski ended up staying at the club. The Polish striker was agitating for a move away from Bavaria as his agent-Pini Zahavi, publicly expressed his client’s wish. The German club was not even ready to entertain offers for him, a decision that has been vindicated in the last three campaigns.

Lewandowski has gone from strength to strength in the past three seasons, outscoring numerous top forwards in Europe. He also shut down critics that suggested he does not deliver in Europe by scoring 15 goals in 2019/20 that helped his team to bring the Champions League trophy back to Allianz Arena.

Considering the fitness of Lewandowski, it will not be a shock that he will play at the top level for four more years. It remains to be seen whether the Polish striker will continue playing at Allianz Arena.
