Lewandowski breaks the record for legend Muller
Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski dug his name in golden letters in the history of the German football league after his goal against Augsburg in the last 34th round of the “Bundesliga”. Lewandowski, 32, waited until the last minute of normal time to score his historic goal in the 5-2 victory by his side. With this goal Lewandowski reached his 41st league goal this season, surpassing Gerd Muller’s previous record. The Polish striker had equaled Muller’s achievement in the last round by reaching the 40th goal, which was what the Bayern legend achieved in the 1971-1972 season.
Lewandowski frantically celebrated this historic achievement, taking off his shirt as soon as the ball entered the Augsburg goal, after misfortune haunted him throughout the match. Lewandowski became the first player to hold the Bundesliga top scorer award for four consecutive seasons, and surpassed his best scoring record in the competition, when he scored 34 goals last season. After the season’s final match, the Polish star received the Bundesliga top scorer award at the Allianz Arena before the official ceremony for Bayern’s victory in the ninth and 31st successive title in its history.
