Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has moved into the top ten of the Bundesliga’s all-time goalscoring chart following his goal against Cologne.
The Bayern and former Borussia Dortmund goal-getter now sits on 166 Bundesliga goals from just 243 games and joint-tenth with Cologne legend Hannes Löhr, who netted the same amount in 381 top-flight appearances for the Billy Goats.

The Poland international bagged 74 of those Bundesliga goals during four seasons at BVB, and has even picked up the pace since his move to Munich. In less than three and a half campaigns with the record champions, he already has 92 goals in just 112 league outings.
While Lewandowski’s position as one of the greatest goalscorers in Bundesliga history is further strengthened by his entry into the all-time top ten, it’s the Poland international’s frequency of goalscoring that stands him out.
Currently only the Bundesliga’s greatest ever goalscorer Gerd Müller (365 goals in 427 games) can boast a better goals-per-minute ratio than Lewandowski of all the goalscorers in the league’s top 150. The Pole also holds the record for the fastest non-German player to reach 100 Bundesliga goals.
Out of the top ten, Claudio Pizarro is the only currently active player ahead of Lewandowski on 191 goals. The former Bayern, Werder Bremen and current Cologne striker is the Bundesliga’s leading non-German goalscorer, and the champions’ current leading man will have the Peruvian in his sights.
