Robert Lewandowski scored a brace against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday to equal his most prolific season, as Bayern Munich scored five again this weekend to move 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table.
The Polish striker finally completed the Bundesliga set on Saturday after registering 25 unsuccessful shots in Bayern Munich’s previous meetings with Fortuna Dusseldorf. Before Saturday’s game, he had failed to score against them in his entire career.
In the 15th minute, it was Mathias Jorgensen who put the ball into his own net to give Bayern the lead before Benjamin Pavard headed home a fine cross from Joshua Kimmich’s corner kick within the hour mark.
Robert Lewandowski finished off a counter-attack before the half-time break and scored his second of the afternoon within five minutes into the second half.
It was another exemplary display from teenage sensation Alphonso Davies, who scored Bayern’s fifth goal with a beautiful solo effort from the edge of the penalty area.
Lewandowski’s brace made it his 43rd goal from 37 games in all competitions this season for Bayern Munich.
Although he was unable to complete his hat-trick from close range in the 70th minute, the Pole as he is fondly called has now been on target against all 18 clubs playing in the German Bundesliga this season.
Bayern Munich’s victory over Fortuna Dusseldorf was their fourth consecutive win since the restart of the German Bundesliga. After four games, they have found the back of the net 13 times and conceded just twice.
Next weekend, Bayern Munich travel to Leverkusen for a tricky encounter as Fortuna Dusseldorf host Hoffenheim.
