Lewandowski ready for double ton

BERLIN — Robert Lewandowski will celebrate his 200th appearance for Bayern Munich, as the Polish superstar looks to continue his explosive early-season form when the Bavarian giants play Bayer Leverkusen today (9.30pm).

Lewandowski, who has 157 goals in 199 appearances in his Bayern career so far, has found the net six times in competitive games this term, and is already a firm favourite to become Bundesliga top scorer this season.

Along with Schalke and RB Leipzig, Leverkusen are one of several big teams who are hoping to bounce back from a disastrous start to the campaign.

Leverkusen, meanwhile, are hoping to avoid their worst ever start to a Bundesliga season after they lost their opening two games.

“Bayern are the best in the business but we have to go there and seek out chances,” said under pressure Leverkusen coach Heiko Herrlich.
