FC Bayern Munich attacker Robert Lewandowski scored again in today’s 2:0 win over Ingolstadt, his seventeenth goal of the season. That’s no record, but the polish attacker has recently had his share of records put to his name. His nine-minute, five-goal haul for Bayern Munich against Wolfsburg earlier this season has been officially recognised by Guinness World Record. The Polish star was presented with four separate official Guinness World Records.
Lewandowski scored five goals during the league encounter with Wolfsburg back in September, in turn breaking a series of records including Fastest Bundesliga hat-trick (3 minutes 22 seconds), Fastest Four Goals in a Bundesliga Match (5 minutes 42 seconds), Fastest Five Goals Scored in a Bundesliga Match (8 minutes 59 seconds), Most Goals Scored by a Substitute in a Bundesliga Match (5 goals).
With Bayern trailing one nil at half time, Robert was thrust into the action after the break and started his historic scoring rout on the 51st minute before scoring four further goals in the space of just nine minutes.
Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said after the match: “I can’t really understand it. Five goals. Neither as a coach nor as a player did I ever experience something like this and I can’t really explain it.”
