Lewandowski catches up with Raul

Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski shares third place in the Champions League goalscorers race with Raul Gonzalez. Both scored 71 goals.

Given the influence of Robert Lewandowski on Bayern Munich's play over the past ten years, such a result was to be expected. The Pole is always singled out in a separate line, giving the outline of the Rekordmeister's formation of 4-2-3-1, and he confirms the status with goals.

Last season, the striker almost won the top goalscorer's Golden Boot, but Ciro Immobile beat the Pole due to more matches in Serie A. But if you look at Robert's play at a distance, then only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are better than him during this time. As evidenced by the statistics of goals scored in the Champions League.

Robert caught up with Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez, scoring his 71st goal against Red Bull Salzburg. At the same time, the Munich players have been winning in the most prestigious club European tournament for 15 matches in a row, and this is the merit of the correct approach of Hansi Flick and the subtle symbiosis of the coach and the players.

Robert is unlikely to reach the results of Ronaldo (131 goals) and Messi (118 goals), since the age of 32 means a lot to a striker. We have no doubts about Lewandowski's physical abilities, because it’s stupid, looking at a living Cristiano, but we don’t very much believe that he will be able to play at the same level for another 3-4 years.

Robert has already scored 14 goals in the Bundesliga and the Champions League in 13 matches this season. Only the prodigy from Norway Erling Haland has better performance. The Borussia forward has already scored 15 goals in the Champions League in the shortest possible time and in the future will be the one who will not only bypass Lewandowski in the number of goals in the Champions League, but also compete with Ronaldo and Messi. But for now, Robert is the best center forward of our time, the good old nine, which has been tested by time and a lot of circumstances.
