Robert Lewandowski Is Set To Break The Record Of Lionel Messi | FC Bayern 7 - 0 VFL Bochum

Saturday: 18 September 2021

FC Bayern vs VFL Bochum

The Polish international striker Robert Lewandowski scored yet another goal on Saturday evening as FC Bayern Munich trashed the nearly promoted VFL Bochum 7 - 0 at the Allianz Arena.

This marked his 7th goal in the 2021-22 Bundesliga season in a total of five league appearances. The 33-year-old striker scored the fifth goal of the match. 

After scoring that goal, he extended his consecutive goalscoring run in the Bundesliga to a total of 18 consecutive games for the reigning champions, FC Bayern. In his 18 consecutive games, he has scored a total of 13 goals and registered 1 assist.


Robert is now setting a new record for FC Bayern Munich, and the Bundesliga after surpassing the record of the late Gerd Muller, of scoring in 16 consecutive games.


Lewandowski needs to score in his next three consecutive league matches to equalise the record of scoring in 21 consecutive matches, which is currently held by Lionel Messi.

However, Lewandowski will not be breaking the record of scoring more goals in consecutive league matches. The Argentinian superstar set the record at 33 goals during the 2012-13 season.
