Robert Lewandowski and the race to become the Bundesliga's top scorer

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski won a fourth Torjägerkanone as the Bundesliga's top scorer last season - can anyone stop him making it five in 2019/20?

Robert Lewandowski

Club: Bayern Munich
Age: 31
Games: 14 (14 starts)
Goals: 16
Minutes per goal: 77

All good things have to come to an end, and so it proved for Lewandowski. After becoming the first player in Bundesliga history to score a goal on each of the first 11 matchdays of a season; the first to find the net in 11 successive top-flight matches; and the first to reach 16 goals after 11 matchdays, the streak came to an end in Bayern's 4-0 win at Fortuna Düsseldorf. He also drew a blank against Leverkusen on Matchday 13 and against Gladbach on Matchday 14.
