Bayern Munich’s goal poacher, Robert Lewandowski rose to the Bundesliga record of 40 goals in a season during his team’s 2-2 draw against SC Freiburg.
His first-half penalty drew him level with Gerd Müller’s record set in the 1971/72 season. The striker honored Müller by uncovering a shirt that read “4EVER GERD” as he celebrated the goal.
Bayern wrapped up a 10th back to back league title a week ago and is currently 11 points clear at the top of the table.
In the wake of evening out with Gerd Müller’s record, he went straight to Twitter and wrote:
“I’m so unbelievably proud to make history for FC Bayern, and to play a part in creating the stories that fans will tell their children — following in the footsteps of legends like Gerd Müller,” – Lewandowski.
He reached at the 40-goal milestone when he converted a penalised after Thomas Müller was fouled at a corner – a goal that also saw Bayern become the first side to score in 34 sequential away games in the Bundesliga.
