Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski has set an exceptional Bundesliga record after scoring a brace against his former club Borussia Dortmund
The Bavarians swept arch-rivals aside with a commanding 4-0 triumph at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, with the prolific Pole maintaining an impressive start to the season.
Lewandowski scored two goals against the BVB, one in each half, becoming the first player in the history of the Bundesliga to score 16 goals in the opening 11 fixtures.

The legendary German striker Gerd Muller owned the record of 15 goals netted in the first 11 league games set in the 1968/69 season before seeing his achievement eclipsed by the 31-year-old bomber.
Outstandingly, Bayern’s talisman has now scored at least one goal in all 11 league outings this term and has also found the net in all of the club’s opening four Champions League matches.
Lewandowski now tops the Bundesliga goalscoring chart having scored five goals more than RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner, who has gobbled 11 league goals so far this season.
What’s more, he has taken his goalscoring tally against his former side to 16 goals bagged in 11 top-flight head-to-head encounters.
