Lewandowski scores in record 9th successive Bundesliga game

Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski made Bundesliga history on Saturday when he scored during their 2-1 victory over Union Berlin.

The Polish international became the first player to score in each of the first nine matchdays of a season during the German Bundesliga’s 57-year history. The previous record was set by Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who found the net in the opening eight matches of the 2015-16 campaign.

Not only has Lewandowski scored in all nine Bundesliga matches to start the 2019-20 season, the 31-year-old has scored in his last 13 competitive matches. He scored in Bayern’s 3-0 win over Red Star Belgrade to start their Champions League campaign, twice in the 7-2 humiliation of Tottenham Hotspur in London, and another brace in the 3-2 win at Olympiacos midweek.

Robert Lewandowski’s goal versus Union Berlin this weekend means he has scored against 17 of the 18 current Bundesliga sides, with Fortuna Düsseldorf being the exception.
