Robert Lewandowski at 31: We look at his goal-filled career in numbers

Robert Lewandowski at 31: We look at his goal-filled career in numbers

Robert Lewandowski became the first player in Bundesliga history to score in five successive season openers with his brace against Hertha Berlin on Matchday 1.

The goals cemented his place as the German top-flight's all-time leading foreign scorer with the Poland striker having scored 204-strikes in his star-studded career. 

But what about his previous  Goals?

1: Snapped up from Polish outfit Lech Poznan, Lewandowski made his Bundesliga debut in the colours of Dortmund on 22 August 2010. A month later, he scored his first goal at Germany’s top table, against none other than BVB’s fierce rivals Schalke in the Revierderby.

3: Lewandowski hit eight, 22 and 24 goals in his first three seasons on the books at Dortmund. He won back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012 but had to wait until 2013/14 - his final season as a BVB player before joining Bayern.

6: In his eight full seasons in the Bundesliga, Lewandowski has lifted the title on six occasions (twice with Dortmund, four on the spin with Bayern). 

9: Back to the season in which Lewandowski went from world-class to world’s best, the Bundesliga sharpshooter set another top-flight record after scoring nine goals in just three successive games between Matchdays 6-8. 

Wolfsburg Sufferers

20: Wolfsburg has suffered the most in the hands of the Polish. He’s put 20 past them in 17 league appearances - more than he has against any other club.

22: Lewandowski has successfully converted 22 of his 25 Bundesliga spot-kicks to date.

50: Lewandowski brought up his 50th Bundesliga goal in a game against VfB Stuttgart in March 2013, it marked the ninth successive match in which he found the net - another top-flight record, shared with Gerd Müller and Klaus Allofs. 

127: With 127 Bundesliga goals to show for his first four-and-a-half seasons at Bayern, Lewandowski is the club’s leading non-German marksman, ahead of Robben (98). 

150: On target against RB Leipzig on 13 May 2017, Lewandowski marked his 226th Bundesliga appearance with his 150th top-flight goal. 

200 & 201: Pizarro had held top spot since September 2010, but there's a sneaking suspicion Lewy's reign will be significantly longer after he brought up his double century in Der Klassiker on 6 April 2019.

The Bayern No.9 now ranks fifth in the Bundesliga's all-time scoring charts, behind Manfred Burgsmüller (213), Jupp Heynckes (220), Klaus Fischer (268) and the seemingly unassailable Müller (365).
