Robert Lewandowski made history on Wednesday evening as he grabbed Bayern Munich’s only goal in their 1-0 win over Augsburg.
The Pole took his tally for the season so far to 22, making him the first player to score so many goals in the first round of fixtures, beating Gerd Muller’s record of 20 in 1968/69. The No.9 missed one of Bayern’s 17 matches to date through injury.
Lewandowski struck from the penalty spot in the 13th minute, putting Bayern ahead and despite their advantage, they were pressed back by Augsburg from there.
The champions gave away a penalty of their own, but former Real Sociedad striker Alfred Finnbogason failed to capitalise.
Bayern are now four points clear of RB Leipzig in second.
