Not long ago, FC Barcelona fans were on the top of Robert Lewandowski. The Blaugranes bought the striker, hoping he could bolster the attack with a proven goal scoring record. The Polish striker did a decent job in the 2022/23 season by scoring 33 goals in 46 games.

As of late though, especially at the start of the second half of 2023/24 season, the Warsaw native gave away disappointing performances day in and day out. This season, the Polish forward has only 20 goals in 39 games.

Still, Lewandowski didn't give up and has been better in the past few games. Looks like the striker is settling in the Barcelona lifestyle well and we can hope for even better performances in the upcoming days.

One of the most surprising stat of Robert this season has definitely been his assists. Although, not a natural assist provider, Lewandowski has racked up 9 assists this season. The surprising part isn't the 9 assists, but the recipients of the assists. The Polish striker has assisted 9 times this season to 9 different players.

Fans call him Lewangoalski, a moniker given by his Bayern teammate Thomas Müller. The term became popular after the German midfielder used it in a post-match conference. Since then, it has been used by fans and commentators alike.

Speaking of Lewandowski's assists, 8 of the 9 were in La Liga and 1 in the UEFA Champions League. The UCL assist came in against the 5-0 demolition of Antwerp where Lewandowski assisted Gavi to get in the fourth goal.

The first La Liga assist for Lewandowski this season was against Cádiz where the Polish man assisted the second goal by Ferran Torres to seal the deal. The next were against Real Betis to João Cancelo and Raphinha.

One was against the narrow win over Almería to Sergi Roberto, the next one against Villareal to İlkay Gündoğan. The one that followed was to Lamine Yamal against Mallorca and two against Atlético de Madrid to João Félix and Fermín López.
