Lewandowski Now Bundesliga’s Highest-Scoring Foreigner

Robert Lewandowski has moved in front as the highest-scoring foreign player of all-time in the Bundesliga following his goal against Wolfsburg on Saturday.

The Pole was on target in the 37th minute as he put Bayern Munich 2-0 in front in their game at Allianz Arena, bringing up a total of 196 goals in Germany’s top-flight league.

The record had been set by Claudio Pizarro with 195 Bundesliga goals.

The 40-year-old Werder Bremen striker was last on target in his side’s 1-1 draw with Hertha Berlin on February 16 and he missed the chance to pull clear of Lewandowski during Friday’s 4-2 win over Schalke.

That gave the opportunity to the Bayern forward to move ahead as he lined up against Wolfsburg, with Lewandowski scoring his side’s second of the game after Serge Gnabry had put them in front.

Of his total of 196 Bundesliga goals, the 30-year-old has scored 122 of them for Bayern, while the other 74 came during his spell with Borussia Dortmund between 2010 and 2014.
