Robert Lewandowski has scored 27 goals in 20 games for Bayern this season and it's not even December yet.
To put things into perspective, he scored 25 goals in the entire 2014/15 season, his first season for Bayern.
It's crazy to see how far he's developed in these 5 years. pic.twitter.com/Jaf1cJUUXo
