Lewandowski sets new Bundesliga record

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski set a new record in the Bundesliga as his side beat Union Berlin 2-1 on Saturday. 

Lewandowski became the first player in the history of the league to score in nine successive games at the start of the season. The Poland international has now edged Arsenal man and former Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when it comes to netting in successive games. 

Munich opened the scoring through Benjamin Pavard in the 12th minute before Robert Lewandowski added the second in the second half. The visitors were awarded a penalty but Sebastian Andersson's effort was saved. However, he scored the consolation goal, four minutes to stoppage time from the spot.  

Aubameyang, who currently plays for Premier League side Arsenal scored in eight straight for Dortmund back in 2015/16 season but the record has been broken by Lewa who has nine in his record.
