February 11, 2021, is a day marked in red on the Bayern calendar. At the Education City in Rayán (Qatar), the Bavarians beat Tigres UANL (1-0), winning their second Club World Cup. Pavard’s goal gave them the ‘Sextete’ in a clash that Lewandowski did not ‘wet’. It was the last time he did not do it with Bayern.
Against Bochum, the Polish striker chained his nineteenth consecutive game scoring! with the Bavarians between all tournaments. He scored the fifth goal of the win (7-0) against the newly promoted team. In the Bundesliga, ‘Lewy’ has 15 games in a row celebrating at least one goal. It is one of Gerd Müller’s records, which reached 16 in 1969-70. Hertha, on February 2, was the last team to come out of a German league match without the Pole piercing his goal. Lewandowski goes for the ‘Torpedo’ brand. It does not have limits.
Also, in its lair it is lethal. He has scored in 13 consecutive games at the Allianz Arena. He has established a new mark in the German League, surpassing the 12 that they chained ‘wetting’ at home Jupp Heynckes (1972-73 with Borussia Mönchengladbach) and Gerd Müller (1969-70 with Bayern). The last match in which he did not celebrate a goal in Munich was on December 5, 2020, against RB Leipzig (3-3). Another record.
“There is no other footballer like him in the world. In the area, in front of the goal, he is the best in recent years,” confessed Hansi Flick. An opinion shared by his successor, Julian Nagelsmann: “He is incredibly consistent, has a great ability to fall between the lines and is very involved in the game. He is very dangerous because he can score with every legal part of his body. His scoring appetite is exceptional. “.

The two coaches have enjoyed a Lewandowski who since that match in which he did not score in Qatar has not stopped collecting targets. A streak with which he won his sixth top scorer (fourth in a row) last season in the Bundesliga by scoring 41 goals in 29 games. One more than Gerd Müller’s 40 in 34 in 1971-72, a record until he was knocked out by ‘Lewy’ . “It means a lot to me to have beaten him,” the Polish striker confessed.
The injury that occurred against Andorra with Poland that left him out last April, preventing him from playing the quarterfinals of the Champions League against PSG, did not detract from Lewandowski’s hunger. Between last season and this season, he has scored in 19 consecutive games, scoring 30 goals in those games. If last season he finished it with 48 goals in 40 games, this one has started it with 11 in seven.
Lewandowski joined the party of a Bayern that has seven sequential triumphs in which they have scored 37 objectives! With Nagelsmann they are again a roller. They went 4-0 at halftime with objectives from Sané, Kimmich, Gnabry and Lampropoulos, all alone. The Pole, Kimmich, who finished his twofold, and Choupo-Moting shut the ‘seven’ to Bochum. What’s more, the VAR dropped Müller’s 8-0 offside. Relentless.
