Bayern beaten as Lewandowski claims yet another Bundesliga record

Robert Lewandowski of FC Bayern Muenchen battles for possession with Alexander Hack of 1.FSV Mainz during the Bundesliga match between 1. FSV Mainz 05 and FC Bayern München at Opel Arena on April 30, 2022 in Mainz, Germany.


Bayern Munich’s Poland captain Robert Lewandowski has set yet another record.

His goal for the newly-recrowned champions in a 3-1 defeat at Mainz was his 18th away from home in the current Bundesliga season.

That lifted him clear of Jupp Heynckes (17 with Borussia Mönchengladbach in 1973-74) and Chelsea striker Timo Werner (17 in 2019-20 with RB Leipzig).

Lewandowski is the league’s leading marksman with 34 goals.

Bochum scored two late goals to snatch a 4-3 victory at Borussia Dortmund, despite an Erling Haaland hat-trick, to ensure their Bundesliga safety

The result kept Dortmund a point short of securing second spot with two games remaining, with the Ruhr valley club on 63 points, eight ahead of third-placed Bayer Leverkusen, who host Eintracht Frankfurt on Monday.

Freiburg are also on 55 after climbing to fourth following their thrilling 4-3 win at Hoffenheim. RB Leipzig, who are fifth on 54, travel to Borussia Moenchengladbach on Monday.

The top four teams qualify for next season’s Champions League group stage. Bayern Munich, who secured their 10th straight league title last week, are on 75 following their 3-1 loss to Mainz 05.

In a seven-goal, drama-filled encounter Haaland scored a treble to carry Dortmund from 2-0 down.

Visitors Bochum got off to a dream start in their local derby and were 2-0 up by the eighth minute thanks to goals from Sebastian Polter and Gerrit Holtmann.

Dortmund quickly recovered and pulled a goal back with Haaland’s 16th-minute penalty.

The Norway international was far from done and he scored his second with another spot-kick on the half-hour mark.

Haaland thought he had completed their comeback with a tap-in and a lucky bounce in the 62nd but

Bochum came back once more, levelling though Juergen Locadia in the 81st and Milos Pantovic’s penalty for their first win at Dortmund since 1998.
