Wolfsburg were leading 1-0 in the 50th minute of play and were probably assuming, like most, that they were about to steal a win, but unfortunately for them Lewandowski had another idea. By the 60th minute of play, Bayern Munich were leading 5-1. Robert Lewandowski, the Polish forward, came off the bench at halftime and scored 5 goals in 9 minutes breaking all sorts of records.
Lewandowski scored the fastest five goals in the history of Germany’s top soccer league. The first three were scored in just four minutes breaking another league record.
Here’s a look at each of Lewandowski’s five goals.
Lewandowski said: “This was just crazy. Five goals, that’s just unbelievable. I just wanted to shoot and wasn’t thinking about what happened afterwards. I am very, very satisfied. This was a great evening for me.
“I look up at the board after the third or fourth goal and I was surprised there was still so much time left to play. The coach did not have to tell me anything. I knew what had to be done.”
Boss Pep Guardiola said: “This is something I have never experienced before. Five goals in nine minutes. Robert has been a great player in Germany and the world for some time now.
“I am very happy for Robert. For his confidence and our future this was extremely important.
“I can’t really understand it. Five goals. Neither as a coach nor as a player did I ever experience something like this and I can’t really explain it. Five goals against Wolfsburg are never easy.”
