Following their Bundesliga triumph, Robert Lewandowski has urged his side to try and raise their performances in the Champions League.

Robert Lewandoski wants to see more from his Bayern Munich side on the continental front.

In what looks like a norm at this stage, the Bavarians raced to yet another Bundesliga title. Their eighth consecutive domestic triumph in a row.

Lewandowski has had a phenomenal season so far and saw his 31st league goal of the campaign power his side to be crowned champions.

That all but means the Polish forward is now the prime candidate to win a third consecutive top scorer award, his fifth in German football in total.

For all of their domestic dominance, Bayern have not been able to transfer most of it to the Champions League. The Bavarians last laid their hands on the trophy in 2013.

Speaking on his side’s Bundesliga win, Lewandowski spoke on a ‘difficult’ season and also urged his teammates to better in the Champions League.

“We are German champions. Of course it is a bit complicated without celebrating fans. That certain extra, this passion is missing,” the striker said, via the club’s website.

“We are still very satisfied. It was not an easy season, we fought for the title for a long time. I hope that we can celebrate with the fans in the stadium soon.

“Werder played a little more defensively but well in the first half. In the second half we should have scored a goal, then it would have been a little easier.

“We showed that we are the best team in Germany and we want to play even better in the Champions League.”

Bayern will be hoping they can count on Lewandowski and his goals to help them go all the way in the Champions League.
