Robert Lewandowski reminded the world why he was one of the highest rated goal scorers in the world with an epic performance against a tough VfL Wolfsburg team.
At first it looked like Wolfsburg would be able to match Munich point-for-point, recording a goal in the first half to take an early lead.
But after the break, Bayern manager Pep Guardiola decided to swap out a struggling Thiago Alcantara for Robert Lewandowski, and within minutes, history was made.
One goal for Lewndowski at the 50′ mark was followed up by a second goal less than 60 seconds later, and it only took Lewandowski until the 54′ mark to get his third goal of the day for a hat trick.
And then at 56′ he did it again – a fourth goal.
But Lewandowski wasn’t done, not by a long shot (literally) and within a grand total of nine minutes of his being subbed onto the field, the Polish superstar had this little beauty to cap a record-setting day:
It was the first time in Bundesliga history that a substitute scored five goals in a game. He also became the fastest player in Bundesliga history to score those five goals.
Lewandowski also became the first player with five goals in a Bundesliga match since August 27, 1991 – he had just celebrated his 3rd birthday a week prior.
Even Guardiola was absolutely stunned by what he saw.
Pep Guardiola can’t believe what he’s just witnessed! https://t.co/zigZ3ZKWla
