Cologne (Germany) – (Reuters)
Robert Lewandowski, who scored 300 goals in German first-division football, scored three goals, beating Bayern Munich 4-0 against its host Colன்றுn on Saturday and regaining the lead by six points from his nearest rival.
Lewandowski, the league’s top scorer, received a consecutive 66 league game record after receiving a pass from Thomas Mல்லller nine minutes later. After Borussia Dortmund’s 5-1 win over Freiburg on Friday, Bayern reduced the deficit to three points and were determined to secure a quick victory.
Corinthian Tolisso added the second goal in the 25th minute after Mல்லller’s excellent assist to hit a powerful shot in the top corner. Half hour mark for offside.
Lewandowski scored in the 60th minute to put Colon’s goalkeeper Marvin Schwabe 3-0. The 33-year-old Polish striker added his 23rd goal in the league and 300th goal of his career in the tournament this season, having previously played for Dortmund.
Lewandowski is the second highest scorer in the league behind the late Gert Mல்லller, with 365 goals scored. Bayern, who are looking for their tenth consecutive title, have 46 points from 19 games, compared to second-placed Dortmund’s 40 points.
