Bayern Munich attacker Serge Gnabry was left in awe of teammate Robert Lewandowski after the striker scored his 15th and 16th Bundesliga goals of the season in the 4-0 Klassiker thrashing of Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 11.
Lewandowski broke the deadlock in the 17th minute at the Allianz Arena and Gnabry doubled Bayern’s advantage early in the second half before Lewy killed the game off with his second – and the team’s third – in the 76th minute.
It continued the 31-year-old’s astonishing scoring streak this season: he has found the net in every Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League game to take his tally to 23 goals in 18 competitive outings.
Nobody else in Bundesliga history – not even the legendary Gerd Müller - has ever scored in 11 successive matchdays, or had as many goals at this stage of a campaign.
Little wonder, then, that Gnabry could not speak highly enough of his colleague at the final whistle.
"We’re very lucky to have him up front," the Germany international told bundesliga.com.
"He’s in [the kind of] form that I think nobody has seen before, so it’s good for the team and especially for him. We’re all very pleased with him and hopefully after the international break he can continue this form."

Gnabry himself is not doing too badly, either, having started nine of the team’s 11 Bundesliga assignments in 2019/20, contributing three goals and as many assists to help the side climb to third place.
The 24-year-old and his attacking partner-in-crime will next be in action together when Bayern travel to Fortuna Düsseldorf on Matchday 12 after the international break.
