BERLIN (AP) — Robert Lewandowski left it to the last minute of the last game before breaking the Bundesliga record with his 41st goal of the season on Saturday.
Lewandowski missed a host of chances before he finally struck in the 90th minute of Bayern Munich’s 5-2 win over Augsburg in the final round of the German league.
“I’d have preferred to have scored earlier,” the Poland striker said.
Lewandowski had equaled the previous best-mark of 40 goals scored by Bayern great Gerd Müller in the 1971-72 season in Bayern’s previous game in Freiburg. He scored in each of his last 10 league appearances, and clocked 41 goals in just 29 games altogether.
