Lewandowski sets another Bundesliga record

Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 2:3 in the 7th gameweek of the German Bundesliga. Robert Lewandowski scored one of the goals for the Bavarians in his 300th appearance for the treble-winning side.

The derby between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund has for years been the game to watch in the German top-flight football. This year’s “Der Klassiker” at Signal Iduna Park was one of the best encounters between the rivals in recent years. A total of five goals were scored, whilst the Polish national team captain had another two disallowed when VAR intervened.

The Polish striker has an impressive record against his former side with 19 goals in 13 games against the team from the Ruhr Valley. Robert Lewandowski donned the black and yellow of the BVB between 2010 and 2014.

Lewandowski has already scored 11 goals in seven Bundesliga matches, improving on a record at this stage of the season that he himself set in 2019/20. The Pole sits on top of the scoring charts in Germany by some distance, with Borussia Dortmund’s breakout star Erling Haaland in second place with six goals.

With Saturday’s victory in the Ruhr Valley, Bayern Munich rose to the top of the Bundesliga. The Bavarian team are now two points clear of second placed RB Leipzig.
