Robert Lewandowski aiming for more goals after usurping Bundesliga record

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has said that he is aiming to score more goals in the Bundesliga despite recently becoming the highest non-German scorer in the division. The Poland international was recently level with Claudio Pizarro with 195 league goals but he managed to surpass the feat with a brace against Wolfsburg over the weekend.

Speaking after the achievement, the ex-Borussia Dortmund ace stressed that there is more to come from him in the German top-flight, he told Bundesliga.com: “I have to say I’m very, very proud to have achieved something like this. I know Claudio’s still playing, but I’m not done yet either and I want to continue scoring goals.”

Meanwhile, the experienced marksman spoke about the delight of scoring against Wolfsburg, who have been his favourite opposition over the years with 20 goals from 17 league meetings, he added: “I’m delighted to have scored against Wolfsburg. We played really well. I’m really happy with how things are going right now.”

With the resounding 6-0 triumph, Bayern have managed to leapfrog Borussia Dortmund to the top of the table on goal difference and the pressure should mount on the latter, who has not been accustomed to the situation of late. Dortmund have experienced a tough run of form since the beginning of February with just two wins from six matches and this has enabled Bayern to pounce and hold the slender advantage.

Nonetheless, they are nine more matches before the season comes to a close and Bayern’s home game against Dortmund next month could define the front-runner for the title. Meanwhile, Lewandowski has built up form with back-to-back braces and he will be hoping to carry forward with the same against Liverpool during the midweek European game.

Bayern managed to curb the Reds threat with a 0-0 draw during the away leg of the Champions League round of 16,and they now have the chance to overcome the Reds in front of their supporters and make progress to the last eight of the competition.
