Robert Lewandowski hit a personal milestone in Bayern Munich’s 5-0 victory over Hertha BSC.

Half an hour after Thomas Müller put Bayern up 1-0, Lewandowski doubled the score with a series of close range headers that first hit the bar, then the back of the net. In the second half, a nice set of passes from Müller and Leroy Sané found Lewandowski again, and the Poland captain tapped the ball into an empty net for his second of the game, and his 300th goal overall for FC Bayern.

Lewandowski thus reached this milestone in just 333 games, averaging almost a goal per game. He also recorded 65 assists in the process. His goals have helped Bayern to a myriad of titles, including the historic sextuple of last season.

Lewy was far from done, however, and he got his first hat trick of the season later in the game after latching onto a header from Tanguy Nianzou. He thus scored three or more goals in a single league game for the 15th time, quite an achievement.

Despite his latest record, however, Lewandowski didn’t make a big deal out of it. After the game, he said: “I’m not thinking about records. I’m just focused on my tasks before every game. When the team plays well, I profit from it. I’m always happy to help the team.”

Well, help he does indeed. Here’s to many more Bayern goals for Lewy!
