Robert Lewandowski insists he is still very much in the hunt for more goals despite Tuesday’s hat-trick against Dinamo Zagreb making it 10 in his last three games.
The 27-year-old bagged a first-half brace before adding another in the second period as the Bavarians eased to a 5-0 triumph over the Croatians at the Allianz Arena.
It left them top of Group F and already six points clear of Arsenal – thought to be their main challengers before a ball had been kicked this term.
The Poland international shocked the football world when scoring five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga last week before hitting two against Mainz at the weekend, and he is clearly in red-hot form and the in-form striker in European football.
Bayern boss Pep Guardiola had urged the former Borussia Dortmund hit-man to be greedy and look for more goals ahead of Tuesday’s clash and he did just that and, according to the Warsaw-born ace, there is more to come.
“You always have to be thirsty for goals, and you have to be hungry to play better and achieve more,” he said. “You can’t just think that you have achieved enough.
“I always want more. No matter how many goals I have scored or will score, the most important thing always is that we as team pick up three points.”
Next up for Lewandowski is a clash with his former team as BVB come calling to Munich on Sunday, with Bayern on offer at 1.57 to do the business and the visitors priced at 5.50 to leave with all three points.
And it would be a brave man to bet against the former Lech Poznan ace adding to his tally at the weekend.
