A lot of Bundesliga history can be made this weekend, and Robert Lewandowski is one of the men able to do it. With a goal against Hannover 96, Lewandowski will become the first player since the 1976-77 season to score 30 goals in a season campaign.
However, Lewandowski has certainly cooled down since the start of April. After scoring 13 goals in the first 13 games of the Rückrunde, Lewandowski has only managed 5 goals in his last 10 games. While this is a strike rate that most forwards around the world would kill to have,
If he manages a goal against Hannover Lewandowski would become one of only ten players to score 30 goals in a solitary Bundesliga season. Bayern legend Gerd Müller reached the historic mark on five separate occasions.
|1||Gerd Müller||Bayern Munich||1971-72||40|
|2||Gerd Müller||Bayern Munich||1969-70||38|
|3||Gerd Müller||Bayern Munich||1972-73||36|
|4||Dieter Müller||FC Köln||1976-77||34|
|5||Lothar Emmerich||Borussia Dortmund||1965-66||31|
|6||Gerd Müller||Bayern Munich||1973-74||30|
|7||Jupp Heynckes||Borussia Mönchengladbach||1973-74||30|
|8||Gerd Müller||Bayern Munich||1968-69||30|
In fact, Lewandowski and Thomas Müller still have an opportunity to become the highest scoring duo in a single season. They would need to score six goals against the third worst defensive team in the league. Anything is possible.
