Robert Lewandowski He happens to be one of the most decisive footballers in the world right now. The numbers say so. seven goals in six games this season; 15 in the last edition of the Champions League and, above all, 266 goals in 290 games in the last five years, between his club and his national team.
And as if that weren't enough, the Pole is looking for a continental record. Because he has been scoring in nine consecutive games in the group stage of the Champions League. There is only one other footballer who has signed that brand in the entire history of the tournament: Cristiano Ronaldo. But Lewandowski He can be left alone if this Wednesday he scores against Atlético at the Allianz Arena. It would be ten meetings in a row seeing door.
And to avoid it, opposite will be Jan Oblak
, in another passionate duel between the two. The rojiblanco goalkeeper is going through a great moment of form. One of the best in recent times. Because in eight official games that he has played this season, he has only conceded one goal. Four commitments with Slovenia and another four with Atlético in which he has only picked up the ball from within the goal once.
It was also in the first LaLiga match, against Pomegranate in the Matropolitano. And in the final minutes, when the mattress team beat Granada 5-0. Then the duels would come before Huesca Y Villarreal (both finished 0-0). The goalkeeper's streak continued with his team, in the duels against Kosovo Y Moldova. And it continued in force on Saturday in Balaídos, on the return from the regularity tournament, where he also made several worthwhile interventions to support Atlético when it was worst against Celta.
In total, the Slovenian goalkeeper has been unbeaten for more than 550 minutes. A streak that he will try to maintain in what is possibly the most complicated field to do right now, the Allianz Arena, and against the worst possible rival, the Bayern Munich, current champion of Europe.
