Bundesliga top scorer: Can anyone ‘stop Lewandowski in German top-flight’ this season?



Much to the joy of football fans worldwide, the Bundesliga was brought back to our screens this weekend.

Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund picked up victories as they continue their race for the title. Borussia Monchengladbach moved to third, with RB Leipzig dropping into fourth.

They sit a point above Bayer Leverkusen, who sit comfortably in fifth after seeing off Werder Bremen 4-1 on Monday evening.

Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski continued his stunning form in front of goal from the spot against Union Berlin on Sunday. He now has 26 league goals this season. His nearest competitor is Leipzig forward Timo Werner on 21. 

Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho saw little action on Sunday in the Revierderby, but his team-mate Erling Haaland was once again on target.

Only joining in January, the young Norwegian now has ten league goals for the campaign. He will undoubtedly be eyeing the top goalscorer award in his debut Bundesliga season. But it looks the award will fall into familiar hands once again.

It was a closely-fought competition last time around, with Lewandowski ultimately clinching the Golden Boot thanks to his 22 goals. Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer came second with 18, with five attackers managing 17 each.

They were Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz, Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic, Hoffenheim’s Andrej Kramaric Dortmund’s Marco Reus and Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst.

Others certainly came close, with Ishak Belfodil and Werner netting 16 for Hoffenheim and Leipzig respectively.

And things have panned out quite similarly for some of the leading men in 2019/20. With eight league games remaining for most sides, will things change? Or will it be the Polish hitman who will come out on top once again?

The Bayern striker has been given odds of 1/8 to finish as top scorer once again.

Werner is available at 7/1, with Dortmund duo Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho currently 100/1 and 200/1 respectively.

The trio may be behind Lewandowski in the leaderboard, but all three can boast hugely impressive statistics of late. And that’s also the reason why all three of them have been linked with several top sides across Europe.

The Pole boasts 26 goals and three assists, with Werner on 21 goals and seven assists. In his best campaign to date, Sancho has 14 goals and 15 assists. 

And not far off on ten goals and two assists is Haaland. At just 19 years old, it’s been quite the rise for the deadly striker. And he can only get better.
