After a thrilling encounter at the Blaugrana’s stand-in stadium Lluís Companys Olympic, FC Barcelona stands top of the table in La Liga at the moment. They also have not lost a single game in La Liga this season and one of the most important players contributing hugely to this success is Robert Lewandowski.
Lewandowski scored 37 goals in 52 matches for Barça breaking the record of club legend Samuel Eto, whose record stood at 33 goals in 50 matches. Lewandowski also claimed the Pichichi trophy last season in La Liga with 23 goals and is well on his way to another this season. It was also his debut season for Barcelona and his first season in the Spanish top division.
In the Polish’s 50th match for the club against Osasuna, he set a record for most goals in the first 50 matches for a club in the 21st century. The arrival of João Felix has also helped the striker reach his peak form, and together they have created a deadly partnership.
Robert Lewandowski equals his record FC Barcelona Scoring run
The 35-year-old has also equalled his best scoring run for Barcelona by scoring in 5 straight games and is on the verge of breaking his own record if he scores again in the next match against Mallorca. Continuing to exhilarate fans, record-breaking is nothing new to the Polish striker in fact it has been one of his habits.
In the 2020/21 season, Lewandowski set a new bar for the most goals in a single Bundesliga season at 41 goals previously held by German legend Gerd Müller who scored 40 goals in the 1971/72 Bundesliga season. This also earned the Polish striker the European Golden Boot that season.
The Warsaw native made one of his most well-known records against Wolfsburg by scoring 5 goals in 9 minutes after coming off the bench. “I don’t understand this, five goals! I have never in my life witnessed something like this whether as a player or a coach,” then-Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said.
Robert will continue breaking records at Barcelona. In return, it will give other players inspiration to do better, helping the club reach glory like they used to.
