After spending the autumn smashing record after record for FC Bayern München, Robert Lewandowski’s scintillating form has showed no sign of ending in 2016.
Leading the way
Crowned Polish Sportsperson of the Year in January, Lewandowski picked up after the winter break where he had left off in December, scoring two braces in as many games at the end of the month to help the record champions consolidate their position at the Bundesliga summit.
If any proof was needed of the perenniality of Lewandowski's brilliance, however, it was provided in February. A further two braces in the space of four days saw FC Bayern's superstar striker sink VfL Bochum in the DFB Cup, before deciding a potentially tricky fixture in the Bavarians' favour away to FC Augsburg. A week later, Lewandowski grabbed another in his team's 3-1 come-from-behind win at home to SV Darmstadt 98.
