Munich [Germany], June 20 (ANI): Bayern Munich's striker Robert Lewandowski on Saturday became the highest non-German goal-scorer in a Bundesliga season.

He broke the record previously held by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The 31-year-old scored twice in the first half against Freiburg to give him 33 league goals in 30 matches this season, having netted a total of 48 times in 41 games in all competitions.
Lewandowski surpassed the previous record of 31 goals set by Gabon striker Aubameyang in 2016/17 for Borussia Dortmund before he moved to present club Arsenal the following season.
With one game remaining in the season, Lewandowski is well short of Gerd Mueller's remarkable all-time record for the most goals in a German league season when he scored 40 in 1971/72.
Bayern Munich on Wednesday clinched their eighth successive Bundesliga title after registering a 1-0 win over Werder Bremen.
After playing their last Bundesliga game against Wolfsburg, they will meet Leverkusen in the German Cup final on July 4. (ANI)
