The side from Munich have scored an amazing 86 goals after 29 games after the romp against the Rhine men; a new record in the 57-year history of the Bundesliga.
It was Bayern’s designated goal scorer, Robert Lewandowski, who finished a magnificent move in the 43rd minute to make Bayern reach a record of 86 goals. It came as no surprise to anyone, even though the Pole had to wait for his standards for the goal for quite a long time.
That was his first goal in his sixth appearance against Düsseldorf, which means that the 31-year-old scored against all 18 Bundesliga clubs.
Lewandowski elevated his already impressive performance shortly after the break, by scoring a second goal to make it a total of four goals. For the exceptional striker, a mark which matched his personal record in professional football, it was the 43rd goal in all competitions this season: he also scored 43 goals in the 2016/17 season.
These two goals thus won Bayern the game 4-0.
The attacking ability of the champions has gone up another notch under coach Hansi Flick. The 55-year-old coach has celebrated 61 goals for Bayern in 19 league matches, more than any other Bundesliga coach has supervised in such a short period.
However, this isn’t as important for Flick itself. He’s concentrating on more important things. “Right now I’m not interested in numbers and records. All I care about is finishing a good season. You’ve got to be champions at FC Bayern and we have that goal,” the coach said after the game.
