Will Lewandowski break his goal drought against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday?

Robert Lewandowski is one of Europe's most lethal strikers in front of goal, but all his prowess seem to disappear when he faces Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The Poland international is now at 40 goals this season, but he has never netted in the Bundesliga against Fortuna, going five games without scoring against them.

He has faced them thrice with Bayern and twice with previous club Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern faces Fortuna tomorrow evening and his manager, Hans-Dieter Flick, would love to see the 31-year-old Pole break that duck.

"Robert knows exactly the statistic that he has not yet scored against Dusseldorf," said Flick.

"He always wants to score a goal. First of all, it is important to us that we stand up well and create chances. Then if we win and he scores, it would be all the better."

Bayern would go 10 points clear with a win over Fortuna, having beaten second-placed Borussia Dortmund in the Der Klassiker on Tuesday.
