Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski sent social media into meltdown as he smashed 5 goals in 9 minutes against last year’s runners up Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.
The Polish International came on as a substitute to replace Juan Bernat at half time with Bayern Munich trailing Wolfsburg 1-0 thanks to a Daniel Caligiuri goal on 26 minutes. Lewandowski equalized for Bayern in the 51st minute and subsequently went on to score 4 more goals in the next 9 minutes to leave Wolfsburg players scratching their heads in utter astonishment.
Even Bayern manager Pep Guardiola could not hide his excitement on the touchline.
“I am very satisfied, that was incredible,” said Lewandowski in a post match interview.
“I just wanted to shoot, I didn’t really think what will happen afterwards. Having been one down, we knew that we must improve and score twice at least.
“But five goals, that’s incredible… I don’t know how fast it was, but it was fast. But when you’re on the pitch, you’re just focused on football.
“After the fourth I looked at the scoreboard, it was the 60th minute and I only thought: ‘Ooh’.”
Here are the best twitter reactions to Lewandowski’s remarkable 5 goal blitz.
