Borussia Dortmund might have lost out on Lewandowski to their bitter rivals in 2014 but in Erling Haaland they one of the world’s best.
Lewandowski (12) and Haaland (10) are two of the three players in all competitions this season to score atleast ten goals this season.
It’s a tough match to be a defender trying to keep those two quiet!
It’s a historic milestone for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski today who makes his 300th competitive appearance for the club.
The Polish striker joined the Bavarian giants from today’s opponents Borussia Dortmund.
For Bayern he’s scored 258 goals in 299 appearances to date – pretty decent figures I’d say.
Benjamin Pavard misses out with a bruised thigh.
The Der Klassiker always tends to bring plenty of thrills and spills – as was the case in their German Super Cup meeting back in September.
Bayern Munich went 2-0 up through goals by Corentin Tolisso and Thomas Muller before Julian Brandt and Erling Haaland brought Dortmund level.
