Robert Lewandowski resumed the rivalry with FC Barcelona after his international period. His team is currently undefeated in La Liga. During the last match against Sevilla, the striker of the Polish national team had reason to be happy. He crossed another barrier in his career.
Robert Lewandowski will probably soon wear the national team shirt in the team led by the new national team coach, Michał Probierz. For now, he is still focusing on playing for FC Barcelona, which has had a very good start to the La Liga season. The current Spanish champions have yet to taste defeat.
Robert Lewandowski celebrating his anniversary
Barca already has two draws, and in the last round they were close to third. At the Olympic Stadium in the capital of Catalonia, Xavi Hernandez’s team faced Sevilla, which has average results. However, the match did not go as expected for the hosts, who struggled to find a goal for a long time. They were helped by Sergio Ramos, a former Real Madrid defender who returned to his former club before the season. The own goal turned out to be the only one in the match.
Robert Lewandowski had opportunities to score a goal in the match. Initially, he was heavily held back by the defenders. However, he lacked effectiveness in the second half. The Pole may be partly happy with the performance anyway. The goalless (for him individually) match was a jubilee match. The team captain played the 950th official match in his senior career. The first one took place in 2005, when “Lewy” represented Delta Warszawa.
The balance consists of 19 matches in Delta, 14 in Legia Warszawa reserves, 70 in Znicz Pruszków (including reserves), 82 in Lech Poznań, 187 in Borussia Dortmund, 375 in Bayern Munich, 55 in Barcelona, 3 in Polish youth teams and 144 in the senior White and Red team. Lewandowski will soon celebrate his 1,000th match. It is not known whether he will play for Barca.
FC Barcelona is fighting to defend its title
After eight La Liga matches, FC Barcelona is in first place with a point advantage over Girona, which has played one match less.
