Robert Lewandowski’s barnstorming start to the season has hit another high, with the Bayern Munich striker breaking an all-time Bundesliga record on Saturday.

He scored what proved to be the winning goal in a topsy-turvy 3-2 win at Paderborn, taking his league tally to 10 goals in six games – the best total of any player at this stage of the season.

Only one player had ever scored in the first six Bundesliga games of a season. Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang notched in eight consecutive games for Borussia Dortmund at the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign, but it took him until the eighth before he hit double figures.

Four players had previously hit nine in their first six, including two Bayern icons. Jupp Heynckes, Gerd Muller, Peter Meyer and Lothar Emmerich were the men knocked off their shared perch for the six-game record.

Lewandowski, 31, has been unstoppable in every competition so far this season, also notching in the DFB-Pokal and Champions League to take his own scoring streak to eight games. He has never enjoyed such a lengthy purple patch.
