Robert Lewandowski is one of the best forwards of his generation.
The Polish international boasts incredible goalscoring records for Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and their national team, and is feared throughout Germany and in the Champions League.
Most teams hate facing the forward, but some have been on the receiving end of his attacks more than others. Here are the teams Lewandowski can’t stop scoring against.
Let’s start with Lewandowski’s record against the German Ingolstadt minnows.
He has scored four goals in as many games, all for Bayern Munich, with his team winning every match.
Let’s go to Ekstraklasa in Poland before Lewandowski was the series scorer he is today.
Playing for Lech Poznan, Lewa scored goals in four league games against Ruch Chorzow, but failed to score in his only Polish Cup match.
Remaining in Poland, two of Lewandowski’s goals against Poland Warsaw came in the 1st League, the country’s second division.
They also met again at the Ekstraklasa, with Lewa scoring another pair.
Do you remember those two seasons when Bayern slapped Arsenal 5-1 on three separate occasions?
Lewandowski was never the main architect of those victories, but he scored once in each game.
Lewa has a bit of work to do on this album. Four goals in 14 games against Borussia Mönchengladbach hardly suits a man of his stature.
Two of them arrived as recently as 2018/19, but come on Robert. It just isn’t good enough.
Lewandowski was unstoppable during the 2019/20 season, and Red Star Belgrade was just one team that was subjected to the sword.
He scored five goals against them in the Champions League group stage that season, including four in a 6-0 away win.
Another victim of the Champions for Lewandowski.
In two group stage games, Bayern racked up 5-0 and 2-0 victories, with the forward scoring five in the two games. Like lambs to the slaughter.
A season before Bayern won Europe’s top club competition, the 2018/19 Ajax surprise package gave them two comprehensive tests.
Lewandowski scored twice in that season’s 3-3 draw, but had previously scored three times in two games for Dortmund during 1-0 and 4-1 victories.
Five goals in six appearances against Olympiacos shows how clinical Lewandowski is.
He lost to the Greek giants once to Dortmund, but has scored four goals in his last three appearances against them with Bayern.
Before his switch to the German giants, Lewa had no trouble hitting Bayern with Dortmund.
He was on the losing end against his current employers five times out of 12 games, even scoring a hat trick in the 2012 DFB-Pokal final.
Lewa averaged one goal per game against Slask Wroclaw, including two goals on two occasions.
Lewandowski never lost to Wisla Krakow in seven appearances, scoring against them in Ekstraklasa, Superpuchar Polski and the Polish Cup.
Naturally, because he plays in the Bundesliga and Real Madrid plays in La Liga, Lewandowski has only faced Los Blancos in the Champions League.
He was unable to score in five of the eight games he played against Real Madrid, but the UCL semi-finals saw a gigantic four-goal run during Dortmund’s 4-1 win.
It’s just the five games played against Paderborn for Lewandowski, but he’s scored in each one so far.
Bayern have won all five games, perhaps unsurprisingly.
Nurnberg have never beaten a Lewandowski, as the forward has scored seven goals in the ten games he has played against them.
Five of his goals against them were for Dortmund, and Nurnberg’s declines in recent years prevented him from scoring too many more.
Given that RB Leipzig is only three years old, Lewandowski hasn’t seen many of them. But what he has seen, he has obviously liked.
He scored four goals in his first three games against Leipzig, and also scored two goals in Bayern’s final 3-0 DFB-Pokal victory in 2019.
Lewa’s have scored eight goals in 17 appearances against Stuttgart so far, and his best performance came with Dortmund in 2013.
The Polish forward scored a hat-trick during the 6-1 win, and also posted an assist.
Lewandowski’s goals against Bayer Leverkusen are split 60-40, four in the Bundesliga and four in the DFB-Pokal.
These included a double in the DFB-Pokal 2019/20 final, which Bayern won 4-2.
Cologne or Cologne, however you spell it, doesn’t matter to Lewandowski.
His account might be a bit heavier if the Billy Goats – yes, the royal moniker – hadn’t dropped multiple times in recent years. Classic selfish cologne.
Lewa’s last goals at Dortmund came against Hertha Berlin, scoring two goals during a 4-0 away win in 2014.
He was asked to score four against Die Alte Dame in 2020 to secure a 4-3 for Bayern.
Hoffenheim haven’t been hit as hard as other teams by Lewandowski, although 12 goals in 21 games is still a more than decent record.
He has managed two doublets against Hoffenheim, and the rest come in a steady stream.
Lewandowski has lost only once to Hannover in his career so far, in a 2-1 loss in 2011.
He has accumulated 15 victories against the Lower Saxony team, scoring the same number of goals.
Frankfurt were the victims when Lewandowski scored his 100th goal for Bayern, and his second goal carried him into his century.
Bayern’s 50th goal from Lewandowski came against Hamburg in January 2016, deflecting a Thomas Muller shot that passed goalkeeper Rene Adler.
He has scored 16 goals in 15 games, including a hat trick in a 6-0 victory in March 2018.
Another of Lewandowski’s favorite teams, the Pole has racked up 16 goals against Mainz, and has only been on the losing side in one of the 19 games he played against them.
He scored in both games of the 2019/20 season against Die Nullfunfer.
To date, Lewandowski has scored more goals against Freiburg for Dortmund than against Bayern. That included an eight-goal streak on five goals between the 2011/12 and 2013/14 seasons.
Their only loss against them so far was Bayern’s 2-1 loss in 2015.
Augsburg are like lambs to the slaughterhouse when Lewandowski is in town. He has scored in 11 of the 15 games he has played against them, hitting 19 times.
He has two triples against the Bavarian team, one for Dortmund and one for Bayern.
They may have had their big shot in the Bundesliga with Dortmund, but there is no love lost when Bayern take on them in Der Klassiker.
Lewandowski scored in his first two games against BVB and Bayern’s national dominance has more than supported his decision to switch sides.
It took Lewandowski a few shots at Werder to get going, but once the first one came in, no one could stop him.
He usually scores with braces against the Weserstadion side, although he did score a hat trick in August 2016 during a 6-0 win.
With a couple of folds and a hat trick against Schalke, Lewandowski is regularly on the score sheet when Bayern play for the Gelsenkirchen side.
His best performance came during the 2019/20 season, scoring three in an easy 3-0 win, while his first Bayern goal came against Schalke.
Wolfsburg must be absolutely sick of seeing Lewandowski.
He has thrown 24 strikes against the former Bundesliga champions, including the famous five-strike barrage in nine minutes.
Lewandowski averages more than one goal per game against Wolfsburg and scored his 250th goal in the Bundesliga against them.
