This Tuesday the men of Xavi Hernandez will visit Munich to face the Bayern Munich in the second day of the group stage of the Champions League. The match will be especially emotional for a culé footballer: Robert Lewandowski He will return to what was his home for eight seasons.
The Polish striker defended the shirt of the Munich giant on 375 occasions, becoming one of the great icons of the club and breaking almost all goalscoring stats established in Germany.
An unrivaled legacy
Lewandowski arrived in the Bavarian capital in the summer of 2014. He did so after his contract with the Borussia Dortmund and, in Munich, he quickly adapted. The Pole would end up celebrating up to 344 goals for the Bavarians and being champion of the eight Bundesliga who played as a Bayern player, being the top scorer in the competition in six of them.
In addition to the great success in the domestic championship, Robert would also win 5 German Super Cups, three German Cups, a Champions League, a European Super Cup and a Club World Cup with the Munich team. Some collective titles in which the Pole had a great weight as recognized by several individual distinctions such as many top scorer trophies in different competitions, two FIFA trophies The Best (2020, 2021) as best footballer of the year and an award for UEFA best player of the year (2020).
The goal in the veins
Getting out of his hunting territory doesn’t seem to affect Lewandowski. His arrival in Barcelona has not deprived him of continuing to do what he does best: score goals. Lewandowski has started the season in the best way, making the best scoring debut of the 21st century in the League scoring six goals in five games. In the Champions League he did not lower his scoring pace either, since on the first day against Viktoria Plzen (5-1) scored a hat trick. He has goals in his veins.
