Robert Lewandowski did not score on Friday night. What had not happened to him with Bayern since … last February.
Bayern Munich quietly won against Greuther Fürth (1-3), Friday evening, opening day 6 of the Bundesliga. But there are two black spots at the night of the German champions. First, the red card received by Benjamin Pavard. And secondly, the fact that Robert Lewandowski.
This is the first time since February 5 that the Polish striker has remained silent during a Bayern match. While Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich had found the net in the first half, Lewandowski was content to provoke Griesbeck’s own goal in the second act.
Lewandowski remained on 19 straight matches in all competitions with at least one goal for Bayern. In the league, he could have equaled the record of the inevitable Gerd Müller, who had scored in 16 consecutive Bundesliga games between 1969 and 1970. In Europe, the record in this matter belongs to Lionel Messi, who has chained 22 matches de Liga with at least one goal in 2012-2013. If he wants to afford this record, Lewandowski must start from scratch.
