Robert Lewandowski: destroyer of offside traps

Losing 2-0 at the Emirates stung and Bayern Munich know that better than anyone. Getting off to a good start at the Allianz Arena for Matchday 4's re-clash against Arsenal was always going to be important. Robert Lewandowski knew this, so he calmly reminded us why he's the best striker on this entire plant.

Arsenal deserves some massive kudos for playing a really good offside trap that would have left most teams on this planet turning the ball over. But they also lose some kudos because Robert Lewandowski eats offside traps for breakfast, lunch, dinner and probably also for Fourth Meal.

That read from Lewandowski is utterly filthy and the fact that not a single Arsenal player even reacts shows how perfectly he beat that entire team. Thiago Alcantara deserves some high praise too for delivering that chipped ball on a dime, but in some ways that's not as exciting considering he does it day-in and day-out.

But look at how effortlessly Lewandowski makes that read look.
