Lewandowski scores 250th Bundesliga goal

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski reached 250 career goals in the Bundesliga in Wednesday's win over Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.

Lewandowski the first non-German to score 250 Bundesliga goals

Lewandowski brought up the landmark with a header on the stroke of half-time to cancel out Maximilian Philipp's early opener.

He then added his 251st in the German top flight shortly after the break as his double gave Hansi Flick's men a 2-1 victory.

The 32-year-old is only the third player in Bundesliga history to get to 250 goals after Gerd Müller (365) and Klaus Fischer (268), though he is the first non-German to achieve the feat.

Lewandowski required 332 games to hit the total, making him quicker than Fischer (460) but not as rapid as Bayern great Muller (284).

Lewandowski now on 177 goals in 201 league games for Bayern

The Poland international scored his first 74 Bundesliga goals across 131 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, with his 177 for Bayern taking just 201 matches.

Lewandowski appears to prefer the comforts of home, with 151 of his efforts coming on his own patch compared to 100 in away games.

It is not often Lewandowski finds himself on the bench, but in the 37 appearances he has made as a substitute, he has scored 16 goals.

Lewandowski's strikes on Wednesday made it 23 in 20 Bundesliga games versus Wolfsburg, the most he has netted against any one opponent.
