Quarterly review: Tor-tal recall

Cologne – FC Bayern München's Robert Lewandowski and Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been going toe-to-toe in eight net-busting rounds of the Bundesliga season.

Matchday 1

Bundesliga.com jumps into the ring with the two goalscoring heavyweights to judge how their contest for the Torjägerkanone title has been waged so far.

There was no sizing each other up, no sparring, as both men came out punching. Lewandowski delivered the first blow, striking in the curtain-raising 5-0 defeat of Hamburger SV, the biggest-ever first-day win. Aubameyang countered as Thomas Tuchel’s reign as Dortmund coach began with a thumping 4-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach.

 Verdict: Draw
