- Lewandowski sets record pace in reaching 50 goals for Bayern.
- Has scored hat-tricks in his last two games.
- Poland international joined Bavarians from Dortmund in 2014.
Robert Lewandowski's hat-trick against SV Werder Bremen on Matchday 1 - the Pole's 48th, 49th and 50th Bundesliga goals - made the FC Bayern München striker the fastest player in Bundesliga history to reach a half-century of goals for a single club.
Lewandowski only needed 64 matches to reach the landmark, with - by way of comparison - the Bundesliga's all-time leading scorer Gerd Müller requiring 83 games.

|4||R. Brunnenmeier||TSV 1860 Munich||70|

Currently 27th in the all-time Bundesliga scoring chart, if Lewandowski repeats his feat from the 2015/16 campaign - when he scored 30 goals - he would climb to 14th and overtake, among others, Germany legends Rudi Völler, Horst Hrubesch and Uwe Seeler.
