With his team down by two goals, Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski knew his team had to re-group and fight to get back into the fixture.

And that is exactly what the Bavarians did.

Lewandowski, of course, was at the heart of just about everything in scoring three goals to power the Bayern Munich offense in the team’s 4-2 victory. The Polish Hitman’s two first half goals gave his squad an immense amount of confidence that eventually allowed the Bavarians to pull away from Borussia Dortmund.

“We know that maybe the first 15-20 minutes we didn’t play well, but after the second goal we conceded, we knew that we had to push forward, we had to try and score the next goal,” said Lewandowski (as captured by Bundesliga.com). “And then the second half, we had the game under control and we said ‘come on boys, we have to try and score another goal’ because we want to get three points. We did and I think that was something special, and we showed everyone that we want to stay in first place.”

Indeed, if there was any doubt that Bayern Munich lacked focus on the Bundesliga, it can be cast away after such a resilient performance.
