Bayern Munich And Lewandoski Break Bundesliga’s Scoring Record

Austin Papi

German defending champions, Bayern Munich, has displayed an astonishing attacking form this season which was last bested in the Bundesliga 34 years ago.

Bayern Munich coach, Hansi Flick, led the team to an emphatic 5-0 victory over potential title contenders Schalke O4 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. That win means the Barvarians move just one point below Bundesliga league leaders, RB Leipzig.

So many familiar faces on the scoresheet for Bayern Munich, with the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Leon Goretzka, Thiago, and Serge Gnabry all finding the net. Muller would have gotten a brace but his first half effort was ruled out by VAR for an offside.

These five goals scored on Saturday against Schalke 04, took the team's tally to an astronomic 55 goals in 19 games, which is at least four more than their counterparts, Leipzig, and Borussia Dortmund.

55 goals after the first 19 games is the most recorded in the Bundesliga for over 34 years. Not even the intriguing era of Ribery and Robben produced that much goals.

Werder Bremen in the 1985-86 season pulled 57 goals after 19-games, however, they finished that season second, behind German champions, Bayern, on goal difference alone.

RB Leipzig dropped precious three points in a 2-0 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt. Bayern relished every bit of points dropped by their rivals.

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich Center Forward, is currently the outright leader of the pack in the race for the Bundesliga Golden Boot, with 21 goals followed closely by Leipzig forward, Timo Werner, who has managed 20 goals so far.

Lewandowski is also in record-breaking form this season. His tally of 21 goals after 19 league games was last done by Bayern Munich legend Gerd Muller, back in the 1972-73 season.
