Robert Lewandowski Has Now Scored 40+ Goals In The Last Five Seasons

Robert Lewandowski's penalty against Union Berlin has taken him to 40 goals this season - making it the fifth consecutive season he's hit that tally.

The Polish striker is one of the world's best forwards and it comes as no shock that he was the man to score Bayern's first Bundesliga goal since the league's resumption.

He expertly dispatched his spot kick to give his side the lead after veteran defender Neven Subotic brought down Leon Goretzka in the box.

Lewandowski never looked like missing as his coolly slotted the ball home after a staggered run-up.

Fans have reacted to Lewandowski's goal and they have praised the 31-year-old for a clinical return to action.

Bayern didn't have it all their own way in the first half as Union put the league leaders under pressure in the first ten minutes.

However, Hansi Flick's side grew into the game and dominated possession.

They thought they'd taken the lead midway through the first half after Thomas Muller bundled home at the Alten Forsterei Stadion.

But after a lengthy stoppage in play, VAR intervened and judged the World Cup winner to have been offside.

Bayern will be desperate for a victory after Borussia Dortmund's result yesterday, which saw them defeat bitter rivals Schalke 4-0 to move one point behind Bayern in the table.

Who do you think will win the Bundesliga this season?
