Robert Lewandowski stands as arguably the finest finisher in world football right now, the Bayern Munich forward one of the most prolific goalscorers of his generation.
Lewandowski has starred at the highest level for Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, becoming the second-highest scoring player in Bundesliga history and finishing as the division’s leading scorer on five occasions with a sixth set to follow in 2020/21.
The 32-year-old scored 55 goals in all competitions last term as Bayern won a historic treble, whilst he has a mind-boggling 35 goals in just 25 league appearances for the Bavarians so far this season.
Undoubtedly one of the most ruthless penalty-box players of the modern era, perhaps no showing demonstrated the clinical edge of the prolific Pole better than his record-breaking five-goal haul against Wolfsburg in 2015.
The forward was introduced as a half-time substitute with Bayern trailing at the interval 1-0, only to score a staggering five goals inside just nine second-half minutes to turn defeat into an emphatic win.
Lewandowski became the fastest player ever to score three, four and then five Bundesliga goals, whilst no player has ever netted more when entering the game as a substitute.
Pep Guardiola was one of the thousands inside the ground who struggled to believe what they were witnessing, here is Lewandowski’s sensational five-star showing against Wolfsburg.
