Berlin (AFP) – Robert Lewandowski can reach another milestone on Saturday to improve Gerd Müller’s 40-goal record in the Bundesliga season.
Bayern Munich striker scored 31 league goals in the campaign, scoring a hat-trick by beating Dortmund 4-2 at Germany’s Klassiker last weekend.
As a result, you can keep the champion 2 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.
Lewandowski, who has 10 games left, is nine goals below Mueller’s stunning record set in 1971/72. This was thought by many to never get better.
At Werder Bremen on Saturday, Lewandowski needs one more to match the Bundesliga’s 268-goal Klaus Fischer tally.
Only Bayern’s legendary Mueller scored 365 times in 427 league games and more on Germany’s top flights.
Fischer, who played in Munich, Schalke, Cologne and Bochum in 1860 from 1968 to 1988, set Lewandowski back to a better Mueller record.
“He (Lewandowski) has a big chance,” Fisher told the magazine kicker.
“He needs 9 goals in the last 10 games.
“We have to assume that the flow of the season so far is realistic.”
Bayern have scored 13 goals in the last three games since their shocking defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt last month.
In his career, Lewandowski scored 20 goals against Bremen. This is his best record for the Bundesliga club.
Bayern centre-back Jerome Boaten may recover from a knee injury, but David Alaba suffers from a leg knock.
Bremen at the midtable is undefeated in three games, but the last time he beat Bayern was nearly 13 years ago.
Former Bayern defender Marco Friedl missed a match against a former club after winning his fifth yellow card of the season in Bremen’s 2-0 victory at Bielefeld on Wednesday.
Striker Niclas Furkrug has an Achilles tendon rupture, while US forward Josh Sargent has scored in each of the last three games.
Second place RB Leipzig faced a tough test at home on Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday. Eintracht Frankfurt won a shocking 2-1 victory over Bayern last month.
After being knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 by Liverpool on Wednesday, Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann wants his side to resolve their “anger or disappointment” before tackling Eintracht. I will.
Under Japanese captain Makoto Hasebe, Frankfurt has won up to 4th place after winning 6 of the last 9 league games.
Frankfurt striker André Silva scored a goal in the 19th league, but Leipzig was not scored by Angelino on the left back, who was sent off due to an injury.
Notable: Erling Braut Haaland
Hertha Berlin is the next club to stop Dortmund striker Erling Haaland on Saturday.
He scored two nets in a 2-2 draw with Seville on Tuesday, scoring a record 20 goals in the first 14 games of the Champions League.
Harland scored four goals in just 33 minutes last November when Dortmund defeated Hertha 5-2 in Berlin.
“He’s already a phenomenon,” Hertha sports director Arne Friedrich said Thursday.
Former German defender acknowledges that containing Haaland, which Friedrich describes as a “perfect striker” in “size, speed and super finish,” is a “big challenge” for Hertha.
Haaland scored 19 league goals this season. This includes two goals in the first nine minutes of the defeat to Bavarian last weekend.
Dortmund will not be injured by English winger Jadon Sancho and Swiss defender Manuel Akanji.
47 – Haaland has scored goals in many Dortmund matches in all tournaments since January 2020.
37 – Lewandowski scored in 33 Bayern games in all tournaments this season.
