Robert Lewandowski is having his most prolofic season at 31-years-old. The current campaign has not even reached its' halfway point and Bayern's striker is 13 goals off the mark he registered last season with the German club: 27 goals in the current campaign, 40 in the whole of the previous one.
"I have to confess... I am addicted to scoring goals," Lewandowski said after scoring four goals, this time against Red Star. The Polish footballer leads the table of top goalscorers in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League. His performance, usually notable, is now a record.
From January to now, Lewandowski has scored 45 goals in 43 official games. He has reinvented his averages in the current campaign. He has burst his averages this campaign: if from January to May he scored 18 goals in 23 matches, now he has 27 in a total of 20. He assures more than one goal per performance. That's what ProFootballDB, BeSoccer's data laboratory, points out.
Lewandowski has failed to score in just three official 19-20 matches: the German Super Cup in August (which Borussia beat Bayern); a cup match against Bochum, in which he played only part of the game; and the Bundesliga game against Fortuna Dusseldorf on 23rd November.
The Polish has become the favourite to be 2019's top goalscorer. In 2018, Leo Messi once again achieved this. Since the Argentinian and Cristiano Ronaldo have ruled football in the 21st century, only Harry Kane in 2017 managed to break this 'bipartisanship' of football. Now it is Lewandowski who aspires to repeat achievement thanks to his 'addiction' to goals.
