Paris Saint-Germain might have (somehow) been able to keep Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski off of the score sheet, but that does not take away from the Polish Hitman’s absolutely brilliant season.
And you know what? Brilliant might not be a strong enough word to describe just how damn good Lewandowski was this season. The 32-year-old superstar was able to lead each of the three competitions where he competed in scoring. Lewandowski was the leading scorer in the Bundesliga (34 goals), the DFB-Pokal (six goals), and the Champions League (15 goals).
Because he’s also a generous fellow, Lewandowski also tallied six assists in the Champions League and four assists in the Bundesliga. When you think of impactful players, Lewandowski has to be at the top of that list for the 2019-2020 season. However, there is no doubt that Bayern Munich’s Champions League title means more to Lewandowski than any of the totals listed above.
