Robert Lewandowski is one of the greatest strikers of his generation.
Poland’s international boasts incredible points records for Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and his national side, and is feared all over Germany and in the Champions League.
Most teams hate to come against the striker, but some have been in the receiving end of his strikes more than others. Here is the team that Lewandowski can not stop scoring goals against.

Let’s start with Lewandowski’s record against German minnows Ingolstadt.
He has scored four goals in as many matches, all for Bayern Munich, with his side winning every match.

Let’s go over to Poland’s Ekstraklasa for a while before Lewandowski was the series goalkeeper he is today.
Playing for Lech Poznan, Lewa scored in four league games against Ruch Chorzow, but failed to score in his only Polish cup instrument.
Stay in Poland, two of Lewandowski’s strikes against Polonia Warsaw came in the 1st League, the country’s second level.
They also met again in Ekstraklasa, Lewa made another pair.
Do you remember the two seasons where Bayern beat Arsenal 5-1 on three separate occasions?
Lewandowski was never the main architect for these wins but did once in every match.
Lewandowski was unstoppable in 2019/20, and Red Star Belgrade was just one team put in the sword.
He scored five goals against them in the group stage of the Champions League that season, including four in a 6-0 away win.

Another Champions League victim for Lewandowski.
In two group games, Bayern took 5-0 and 2-0 victories, with the striker netting five in the two matches. Like lamb for slaughter.

One season before Bayern won Europe’s best club competition, they received two thorough surveys of the surprise package Ajax 2018/19.
Lewandowski scored twice in the 3-3 draw that season, but had previously netted three times in two games for Dortmund during 1-0 and 4-1 victories.
Five goals in six games against Olympiacos shows how clinical Lewandowski is.
He lost to the Greek giants once with Dortmund but has scored four goals in his last three matches against them for Bayern.
Before switching to the German giants, Lewa had no problem sticking to Bayern with Dortmund.
He was on the losing side against his current employers five times out of 12 matches, even scoring a hat-trick in the 2012 DFB-Pokal final.
Lewa averaged one goal in a match against Slask Wroclaw, including braces on two occasions.
Lewandowski never lost to Wisla Krakow in seven matches and scored against them in Ekstraklasa, Superpuchar Polski and Polish Cup.

Of course, because he plays in the Bundesliga and Real Madrid plays in La Liga, Lewandowski has only ever met Los Blancos in the Champions League.
He failed to score in five of the eight matches he played against Real, but a huge four-goal game came in the UCL semi-finals during a 4-1 victory for Dortmund.
It is only the five matches played against Paderborn for Lewandowski, but so far he has scored in each.
Bayern have won all five of these matches, perhaps not surprisingly.

Nurnberg have never beaten a Lewandowski side, with the striker scoring seven goals in the ten matches he played against them.
Five of his goals against them came for Dortmund, with Nurnberg’s relegations in recent years preventing him from adding too many more.
Since RB Leipzig is only about three years old, Lewandowski has not seen much of them. But what he has seen he has obviously liked.
He scored four goals in his first three matches against Leipzig and also scored twice in Bayern’s 3-0 DFB-Pokal final success in 2019.
Lewas had some work to do on this record. Four goals in 15 games against Borussia Monchengladbach hardly suited a man of his size.
And then he hit a hat trick in their last meeting to see them climb the list.
Lewandowski’s goals against Bayer Leverkusen are divided 60-40, with four coming in the Bundesliga and four in the DFB-Pokal.
These include a stay in the DFB-Pokal final 2019/20, which Bayern won 4-2.

Lewas scored eight goals in 17 games against Stuttgart so far, with his best performance for Dortmund in 2013.
The Polish striker scored a hat-trick during a 6-1 victory and also took an assist.
Lewa’s last Dortmund goal came against Hertha Berlin and scored two goals during a 4-0 victory from home in 2014.
He had to score goal four against Die Alte Dame 2020 to secure a 4-3 for Bayern.
Hoffenheim has not been hit as hard as other teams by Lewandowski, but 13 goals in 22 games is still a more than decent record.
He has succeeded with two positions against Hoffenheim, while the rest comes in a steady stream.
Cologne or Cologne, whatever you spell it, makes no difference to Lewandowski.
His mood may be a little heavier if Billy Goats – yes, a real nickname – had not been demoted a few times in recent years. Classic selfish Cologne.
Lewandowski has lost only once against Hannover in his career so far, which came in a 2-1 defeat in 2011.
He has won 15 victories against Lower Saxony and scored the same number of goals.

Frankfurt was the victim when Lewandowski scored his 100th Bayern goal, with his second strike taking him to his century.
Lewandowski’s 50th Bayern goal came against Hamburg in January 2016 and diverted Thomas Muller’s shot past goalkeeper Rene Adler.
He shook in 16 goals in 15 games, including a Hattrick in a 6-0 victory back in March 2018.
So far, Lewandowski has scored more goals against Freiburg for Dortmund than for Bayern. It included a run of eight goals in five goals between the 2011/12 and 2013/14 seasons.
His only loss to them so far came in a 2-1 defeat for Bayern in 2015.
Another of Lewandowski’s favorite teams, Poland, has collected 18 goals against Mainz, and has only been on the losing side in one of the 20 matches he played against them.
He netted in both matches 2019/20 against Die Nullfunfer.
It took Lewandowski a few cracks at Werder to get started, but when the first one went in there was nothing to stop him.
He usually makes nets in the braces against Weserstadion’s side, even though he managed a hat trick in August 2016 during a 6-0 victory.
Augsburg is like a lamb for slaughter when Lewandowski is in town. He has scored in 12 of the 15 matches he has played against them and struck 19 times.
He has two triples against the Bavarian kit – one for Dortmund and one for Bayern.
With a pair of braces and a hat-trick against Schalke, Lewandowski is regularly on point when Bayern play the Gelsenkirchen kit.
His best performance came in the 2019/20 season and rattled in three during a straight 3-0 victory, while his first Bayern goal ever came against Schalke.
He may have had his big Bundesliga break with Dortmund, but no love is lost when Bayern take them in Der Klassiker.
Lewandowski did in his first two matches against BVB and Bayern’s domestic dominance has more than backed up its decision to change sides.
Wolfsburg must be completely tired of the sight of Lewandowski.
He rattled in 24 strikes against the one-time champions of the Bundesliga, including the famous five-strike blitz in nine minutes.
Lewandowski averages over a goal against Wolfsburg and scored his 250th Bundesliga goal against them.
