When Robert Lewandowski scored his 41st goal of the season in Augsburg on the final day of the 2020/21 season, the Polish Bayern striker broke the record set by Gerd Müller in the 1971/72 season. The prevailing opinion at the time was that Lewandowski's record would also stand for many years.

47 goals this season is not unrealistic for Kane

What you couldn't have guessed: that Bayern will sign a €100m man in the summer of 2023. Since Harry Kane stormed into the record holders, their 41-goal tally has been a flurry. What is surprising is how evenly the two exceptional attackers have moved so far:

After 15 rounds, both players are averaging 1.4 goals per game. Lewandowski's average was 1.4 at the end of the season. If Kane plays and maintains this value, the 30-year-old Englishman will break the record and score somewhere in the region of 47 goals. How is that? Because Lewandowski missed 5 matches and played “only” 29 matches this season.
