With the end of the European championships, the race for the Golden Shoe of the highest scorer among has also come to an end. And Robert Lewandowski is the big winner, with 41 goals scored in the German Championship. It surpassed Gerd Muller’s historic artillery record, a record that had lasted almost 40 years and that seemed unbreakable.
As each goal scored in the Bundesliga is worth two points, the Bayern star accumulated 82 points in this edition of the Golden Boot, much more than the 72 points that had given the Italian Ciro Immobile (Lazio) the prize last season.
Lewandowski, who succeeds Italian striker Ciro Immobile (Lazio) who won last season, was ahead of names like Lionel Messi (2nd place, with 30 goals) and Cristiano Ronaldo (3rd, with 29).

The star has hardly given his rivals a chance this season. To get an idea of the dominance, Lewandowski ends the European season with 11 goals more than Messi, second in this edition. And this is because the Bayern Munich star has been out of a few games and the Bundesliga has fewer matches compared to the main European national tournaments.
In 1971-72, Gerd Muller, played in all 34 Bayern games in the German Championship and rocked the nets 40 times. 39 seasons later, the Pole only needed 29 matches to reach 41 goals and surpass the greatest striker in the history of German football.
Although Lewandowski had already managed to make other great seasons for Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, reaching 30 goals in 2015-16 and 34 in 2019-20, he had never reached such a high level.
As each goal scored in the Bundesliga is worth two points, the Bayern player has accumulated 82 points in this edition of the Golden Boot, much more than the 72 points that had given the Italian Ciro Immobile (Lazio) the prize last season.
