Lewandowski – The Goal Machine

He is lethal in front of goal; scoring nine times in the Bundesliga in his last three games, including an unprecedented five second half goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg on 22nd September. In addition he completed a hattrick in his last Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb.
This remarkable run of form has catapulted Robert Lewandowski to the title of the world’s most lethal striker.

Lewandowski shot

In nine games played since the start of the season for the German champions, the Polish assassin has averaged 4.22 shots per game, with 79% of his efforts on-target, with only four of his attempts missing the target and four blocked.
In total he has found the back of the net 15 times in nine game for Bayern Munich.
But where does Lewandowski strike his shots, at least those that were on-target?
Almost half were struck to the central part of the goal, with an equal number hit to the left and right side of the goal.
Lewandowski definitely prefers to keep the ball low.
64% of his shots were struck to the lower half of the goal, with 10 resulting in a goal. His two efforts struck to the top part of the goal both ended up in the back of the net, whilst only three of his nine shots struck mid-height ended up in the back of the net.
