The former Dortmund man needed just 333 games to bring up his triple century and has now scored in 13 consecutive Bundesliga matches
Robert Lewandowski brought his triple century with goals to Bayern Munich on Saturday as the Polish star’s hat-trick helped the Bundesliga champions to burst past Hertha Berlin 5-0 in a one-sided meeting.
Lewandowski picked up right where he left off at the end of last Bundesliga season and went into this weekend’s showdown with two goals in as many games.
And he is now right back at the top of the league’s scoring lists, which he has topped for six of the last eight years.
The goals keep flowing
The Bayern star may have turned 33 years old on Saturday, but if anything he will only become more lethal with the years.
In 2020-21, he set a new personal best of the season and scored an incredible 41 goals in 29 Bundesliga matches to mark his biggest league return since arriving on the German top flight with Borussia Dortmund back in 2010.
If anything, he sees more than able to pass this mark again if the proof of those first three matches is anything to go by.
Lewandowski scored three times for Bayern to beat Hertha 5-0, with Thomas Muller and Jamal Musiala completing the route.
After entering the match with 298 goals to his name in Bavaria, the Polish international also passed the 300 mark with his second in the afternoon, a milestone he has reached – and with his hat-trick goal already passed – in just 333 Matches .
This was also the 13th Bundesliga match in a row where Lewandowski has found the net, a race only improved by the late great Gerd Muller.
Saturday’s victory leaves Bayern just about first place with Leverkusen and Freiburg with seven points from their first three games; while in what will almost certainly be a gripping race to watch, Lewandowski’s hat-trick took him past Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, who so far has three, as the league’s top scorer with five strikes.
