Lewandowski scares: he adds more goals than seven First teams

Robert Lewandowski is the fittest striker in European football, with the permission of City striker Erling Haaland. His numbers are as incontestable as they are resounding: he has 16 goals in 14 games (11 in LaLiga and 5 in the Champions League). Only the City striker is capable of improving such spectacular records, reaching 19 goals in 14 games. There is no doubt that the Pole and the Norwegian will compete for the Golden Boot, since the rest of the guests at the table seem to live in dimensions totally parallel to that of these two great predators.

Focusing on Lewandowski, his goalscoring contribution to Barcelona is so unquestionable that it even leaves the rest of the team’s attackers feeling a little bad. In fact, he has already reached 50% of the goals scored by the team: 16 of 32 goals. The differences between the Pole and the rest of the forwards are simply abysmal.

But there is also a world if we stick to the ‘Pichichi’, led by Lewandowski comfortably, outscoring his closest pursuers by four goals: Espanyol striker Joselu and Betis striker Borja Iglesias, with 7 goals each. The current Ballon d’Or, Karim Benzema, is even further away from the Blaugrana, with 5 goals.

The statistics of the former Bayern striker are even more spectacular if we compare him with the potential goalscorer of other LaLiga teams. In fact, Lewandowski has more goals than seven First Division teams: Cádiz (4), Elche (6), Mallorca (7), Osasuna (10), Sevilla (10), Valladolid (10) and Getafe (10). But not only that, but he is tied with three more: Celta (11), Almería (11) and Rayo (11).

Faced with such a barrage of numbers, it is not surprising that the Blaugrana is running again for several individual awards. It is evident that the ‘top scorer’ is in his bag, while the Golden Boot seems more complicated, especially if Haaland keeps the statistics. Although obviously the most precious by all is the Ballon d’Or, an award that was won by hand in 2020, but that the pandemic forced him to give up.

And best of all, Robert is not only goals and numbers, but has also become an example in the locker room and absolute leader of the squad. A signing that, as recognized by the club itself, continues to surprise and positive with each passing day.

A League start like that of Ronaldo, Romario or Cruyff

You have to go back 26 years to find the last player to debut in the League who scored 10 or more goals in the League in the first 10 League games. It was Ronaldo, which he did with Barça at the start of the 1996/97 season. Further away are the records of Romario (1993/94), Krankl (1978/79) and Cruyff (1974/75), who also equaled or exceeded ten goals in the first 10 days. All, with Barça.

In this way, Lewandowski has surpassed the records signed by Zlatan Ibrahimovicwho took 12 games to score his first 10 league goals, or Cristiano Ronaldowho needed 13 games to reach ten goals in his first season at Real Madrid.
