LEWANDOWSKI FAVOURITES TO LAND GOLDEN BOOT

 

Poland striker Robert Lewandowski is on course to win another Golden Boot Award in the German Bundesliga. The Bayern Munich hitman has won the Golden Boot Award in each of the last three season and he’s the overwhelming favourites to make it four successive Golden Boot Awards. The Poland striker was recently honoured as the best player in the world at the FIFA Best Award Ceremony.


The Poland national team captain won the award ahead of the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. It was the reward for his numerous performances in the colours of Bayern Munich this year. Robert Lewandowski was the main man as Bayern Munich won three major trophies at the end of last season. The Bavarian giants won the German Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal titles before adding the Champions League trophy in August. Poland striker Lewandowski and his Bayern Munich teammates beat PSG in the Champions League final to win the competition last season.

French international winger Kingsley Coman did the damage to his former club with the only goal of the game to hand Bayern Munich a 1-0 win. Robert Lewandowski didn’t score in that Champions League final but he had done most of his work in the earlier rounds as he finished as the Golden Boot Award recipient with 15 goals.

Robert Lewandowski has been in excellent form for Bayern Munich in the league this season and his goals have sent his team to the summit. He scored two goals in the last league game as he helped Bayern Munich to a 2-1 away win over previous leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Bayern had to come back from a goal down to win the game thanks to Robert Lewandowski. He now has 17 league goals in the league this season ahead of Borussia Dortmund striker ErlingHaaland who has missed the last month because of injury. Robert Lewandowski won his maiden Golden Boot Award during the 2013/14 season before adding a second one during the 2015/16 campaign. He has won the Golden Boot Award in the German Bundesliga since the 2017/18 season. He’s chasing Golden Boot Award number six this season.
