Robert Lewandowski is slowly making a name for himself as one of the most feared strikers in Europe. The former Borussia Dortmund man has 15 goals in his last 6 appearances for his club and country – a record even Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo would be proud of.
The Pole had scored four goals against Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League two years ago when he single-handedly destroyed the Spanish giants.

The striker sprang to life against Wolfsburg less than three weeks ago, when he came on as a substitute and plundered five goals in nine second half minutes. The 27-year-old has not looked back since and has scored in each of the five games that he has participated in.
