Robert Lewandowski has has a September to remember in the Champions League and Bundesliga by scoring nine times in his last three matches for Bayern Munich.
It took the German champions a under a quarter of an hour to start the expected scoring frenzy against Dinamo Zagreb tonight as Douglas Costa snuck one it at the 13-minute mark.
But, to the surprise of nobody who saw his epic performance against VfL Wolfsburg last week, Lewandowski soon made his presence known with a strike after 21 minutes.
A Mario Gotze goal on 25′ added to Zagreb’s woes, and Lewandowski opened the floodgates on 28′ with this strike to all but seal the win for Bayern, with more than an hour of football still to play.
The Polish superstar now famously recorded five goals in just nine minutes as a substitute for Munich in their 5-1 come-from-behind win over Wolfsburg.
The performance broke several impressive records in Germany. It was the fastest time for anyone in the Bundesliga to ever score five goals; it was the first time a substitute had ever scored five goals and it was the first five-goal performance by any Bundesliga player since 1991.
Arsenal had better be wary: Bayern Munich and Lewandowski are taking no prisoners this year.
