Watch: Lewandowski breaks Muller's goal record with last-second strike

Robert Lewandowski surpassed Gerd Muller’s single-season scoring record in the Bundesliga on Saturday with the last kick of the game against Augsburg.

The Bayern Munich striker’s late tap-in followed a succession of near misses from the Pole and finally took his 2020-21 league tally to 41. He matched Muller’s record of 40 with a penalty in last week’s 2-2 draw at Freiburg.

German icon Muller’s record had stood for 49 years and was deemed untouchable until Lewandowski fell six goals short last season. This time, the 32-year-old has shattered Muller’s mark despite missing five matches of the Bundesliga campaign due to injury.
