While most Polish fans were excited about the European volleyball final, Robert Lewandowski returned to the competition with FC Barcelona. Poles have reasons to be satisfied. He recorded a great performance, which, according to the Spanish media, may herald a return to last season’s form.
Robert Lewandowski has had difficult days in the Polish national team. First, he caused quite a stir with an interview given to Eleven Sports and Meczyki, in which he returned to the bonus scandal and the mentality of the players. Later, he and the team lost against Albania in a poor style, which led to the dismissal of Fernando Santos.

The captain of the Polish national team also had to face a lot of criticism, mainly regarding his usefulness as the leader of the white and red team. However, Lewandowski had to return to club duties, because a few days after the match with Albania, he had a match between FC Barcelona and Betis.
Although there has been a lot of complaining about the form of “Lewy” in the Pride of Catalonia since the beginning of the club season, recently the player has started playing better. He overcame his scoring drought against Villarreal, and later added a goal against Osasuna. He was similarly effective against the club from Seville. He scored a goal to make it 2-0 when he received a pass towards the penalty area and chased the ball towards the rival goalkeeper. Additionally, the 35-year-old made two assists. Barcelona eventually won 5-0. After the match, there were many good opinions about the Pole. The Spanish media have even announced the return of Lewandowski from the previous season, who was in brilliant form then, significantly contributing to the Spanish championship for Xavi Hernandez’s team.
“He has become accustomed to playing alongside Joao Felix and Ferran Torres. It was Lewandowski from last season. He took the first opportunity. He could have scored even more goals. This match will give him self-confidence,” wrote the Spanish “Sport”.
