Robert Lewandowski became the first player to net ten league goals in Europe’s top five his afternoon with a perfect hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Lewandowski was the best player in the world last season. He will still be bemoaning the decision to cancel the Ballon D’Or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, no doubt.

The Poland international has started this season where he left off in the last. Today he netted a perfect hat-trick (right foot, left foot, header) against Frankfurt within an hour to wrap-up the three points for Bayern Munich before being subbed off to put his feet up.
What a player.
Here’s all three of Lewandowski’s in the contest, which took his Bundesliga tally for the season up to 11. No player in Europe’s top five leagues has yet hit ten. It’s no surprise that it was he who was the first.
