Robert Lewandowski is in the form of his life, scoring in every single Bundesliga and Champions League match for Bayern this season.

Robert Lewandowski is on a roll. The Pole has been scoring freely since the beginning of the season.

Clearly, the race for the best scorer in the calendar year is on.

Robert Lewandowski is sitting at the top with 41 goals, just two ahead of the incredible Lionel Messi.

The Argentinian picked up the pace after an injury earlier in the season. Messi scored a hat-trick against Celta at the Camp Nou on Saturday.

Lewandowski boosted his numbers just recently. From the beginning of the season, Bayern’s ace has scored 23 goals in 18 appearances.

The duo looks unstoppable at the moment. However, plenty of other strikers should be mentioned for their contributions this season.

Kun Aguero (34), Kylian Mbappe (31), and Karim Benzema (30) are behind the leaders. Cristiano Ronaldo fell off, scoring just 22 goals in 2019.
