Robert Lewandowski scored his 34th goal of the season against Wolfsburg and secured the Bundesliga’s Golden Boot for the third consecutive season. It’s the big Polish striker’s fifth time winning the award in his time in Germany and fourth time with Bayern.

Lewandowski’s 34 goals this season ties him with Dieter Müller for the most goals scored in a single Bundesliga by a non-Gerd Müller player. Der Bomber hit 36, 38, and an unbelievable 40 goals.

This is the third time in his career that Lewandowski has hit the 30 goal threshold in a single season. Only Müller (Gerd, of course) did it more times in a single season (5!).

Lewandowski was in the form of his life this season, banging in goals with ease at times. He did benefit from the COVID-19 break coming at the same time he needed an operation, so he didn’t miss any significant amount of games. Still, finishing a 34 game season with 34 goals is an incredible achievement.
