Robert Lewandowski claimed the record for the most goals scored by a foreigner in the Bundesliga as champions Bayern Munich swept past Freiburg 3-1 on Saturday, while Werder Bremen look set to be relegated after losing at Mainz.

After Joshua Kimmich gave Bayern an early lead at a spectator-free Allianz Arena, Lewandowski scored twice in the first half to give him 33 league goals in 30 matches this season, having netted a total of 48 times in 41 games in all competitions.

 

The Poland striker’s tally beats the previous record of 31 goals set by Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in 2016/17 for Borussia Dortmund before he moved to present club Arsenal the following season.

 

With one game left, Lewandowski remains well short of Gerd Mueller’s remarkable all-time record for the most goals in a German league season when he scored 40 in 1971/72.

 

 THE RACE TO UCL

 

The race for the final two Champions League is wide open after teenage phenomenon Erling Braut Haaland clinically converted two crosses to seal Dortmund’s 2-0 win at third-placed RB Leipzig.

 

Dortmund, who will finish second, and Bayern have both qualified for next season’s Champions League, but two out of Leipzig, Gladbach and Leverkusen can still join them.

 

Haaland now has 13 goals in 14 league games since joining from Red Bull Salzburg and he showed more lethal finishing to convert crosses by 17-year-old US midfielder Giovanni Reyna and then Julian Brandt.

 

Haaland has 44 goals in 39 games for Dortmund and Salzburg this season.

 

Germany striker Timo Werner, who joins Premier League giants Chelsea next month, failed to add to his tally of 26 league goals, second only to Lewandowski.
