Lewandowski surpasses the Barcelona expectations


The goal at FC Barcelona has its own name and is called Robert Lewandowski, the new Barça badge that has dispelled since his arrival the doubts about his expensive signing at 34 years old. And he has done it the same way he earned his superstar status in Munich for eight seasons. An insatiable gunpowder that has allowed him to win over Barcelona and exceed expectations in just one month of competition.

The hit at Barça has been paid in recent years to Leo Messi and Luis Suárez. However, last season was a clear sign of weakness in not having any of them in the squad. Leaders who orphaned an attack that meant a ‘white’ season for the first time since 2008. Once the institutional and sporting crisis has receded into the background, the ‘9’ position once again intimidated all rival defenses with goals of the two-time best FIFA player ‘The Best’.

And his intimate relationship with the goal has not disappeared after wearing his new elastic in Barcelona. Quite the contrary, the Pole has registered 11 goals in 8 games in a remarkable first stretch of the season marred by defeat in his former German stronghold. In fact, Bayern managed to neutralize their former star, who suffered firsthand from the Bavarian beast that has been frightening Barça since 2020.

Together with the Bundesliga team, a competition in which they are the third top scorer, Rayo Vallecano has been the only one capable of withstanding the siege of an insurmountable scoring machine in LaLiga Santander. This led him to break four ‘Guinness World Records’ in 2019 in one sitting seven years ago.

Wolfsburg will not forget last September 22, 2015, when Lewandowski scored 5 goals in 9 minutes, which earned him the fastest hat-trick, poker and repoker in history, as well as being the player with the most goals scored by an alternate

Thus, his braces and even hat-tricks have not been long in coming as a Barça player. The first opponent he frightened off was Real Sociedad on matchday two, where he managed to guide his team to their first victory with two goals. A feat that he would repeat against Real Valladolid and Elche, along with his three goals in the European debut against Viktoria Plzen. All this, without discrediting his goal against Sevilla.

Now, with the international team break in between, Barcelona hopes that its new hero continues to give joy on his return to prolong his euphoria before the World Cup in Qatar. A litmus test, in which they will face Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in October. Consequently, a tight calendar that can raise -even more- the ‘culé’ state of grace or crack it completely.
