Lewandowski Breaks Bundesliga Goalscoring Record
Robert Lewandowski has broken the Bundesliga record for the most goals scored in a single season.
The record was set by Gerd Muller 49 years ago.
The Polish striker entered the final game of the season needing only one goal to make history.
Lewandowski’s moment arrived in the 90th minute when he latched onto a parried shot on the edge of the six-yard box, rounded the keeper and slotted into the back of the net

In doing so, the Bayern star scored his 41st goal of the 2020/21 season, a new record in German football history.
The record was previously set by Muller in the 1971/72 campaign when he also led the line for Bayern.
Lewandowski has been on fire this year, scoring more than once on ten occasions this season, as well as regularly adding big returns throughout the campaign.
It looked as if he would struggle to break the record after suffering an injury in April, but he has come back and hit six goals in their final four matches to pip Muller’s achievement.
