Lewandowski was one of the big summer moves that caught attention and interest of football fans around Europe and the world. He has been the star goalscorer at Bayern for eight years, after he moved from Dortmund in 2014. We were used to seeing his name on the scoresheet in the Champions League or Bundesliga, and now approaching the tail end of his career, it was going to be interesting to see if he could keep up the goals in a new environment at Barcelona.
It didn’t take us long to find out the answer, as just six games into his career at Barcelona Lewy has found the net 9 times, averaging a goal every 52 minutes so far.
He’s exactly what Barcelona needed to take on Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid who have won the title between them in the past three seasons. Barcelona have been going through a rebuild since some big players left, including Messi, and they have some great young talent coming through like Pedri and Fati who have been playing great football under Xavi. But the experience and goal scoring of Robert Lewandowski was another piece to the puzzle that will help them challenge their rivals in La Liga and Europe, and so far he’s been giving Xavi exactly what he wanted.
Barcelona have won four of their first five games in La Liga, only conceding one goal, to stay hot on the heels of Real Madrid, who have also made a great start winning all five games.
Real Madrid’s next generation of talent is starting to shine with Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr both scoring and assisting for fun. Aged just 21 and 22, the two Brazilians have big futures ahead of them and it’s also a sign of the next generation of Brazilian talent that we will see at the World Cup this year.
Rodrygo and Vinicius are a huge attacking threat, and when Benzema is back from injury it could be a nightmare for defenders.
The early signs are that this season is going to be an entertaining one in Spain, with not much to split the two giants of Spain so far. #mmlove
