It hasn’t taken long Robert Lewandowski in exhibiting his scoring power in the Spanish League after chaining two Golden Boots as top scorer in the Bundesliga with Bayern. The Pole is a consummate goal specialist and already leads the Pichichi table with four goals in just three days. The trail of victims of his is endless but, curiously, Sevilla is one of the few rivals that has resisted him in his career. In up to five games he has faced Barça against Sevilla and in none of them has he been able to score. Tonight (9:00 p.m.) at the Sánchez Pizjuán he will have an opportunity to pass that pending subject.
The first time that Lewandowski verified the defensive resistance of Sevilla was in the 2010-11 seasonwhen in the group stage of the Europa League the Borussia Dortmund he tied at the Sánchez Pizjuán (2-2) and lost in Germany (0-1) without the current culé striker being able to see a goal.
Already playing for him bayernin the quarterfinals of the Champions League 2017-18could not beat Sevilla either, although the Bavarian team qualified by winning 1-2 in Nervión and 0-0 at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
The fifth and last time that Lewandowski faced Sevilla in a match was in the European Super Cup 2020-21. The Polish international, the undisputed figure of a Bayern that is otherwise always very choral, did not manage to score either, although at least he made a goal pass to the midfielder Leon Goretzka which led to a goal that ensured extra time for the then European champion. Finally, the aim of the Spanish international Javi martinez gave Bayern the title.
One of the most valued qualities in Lewandowski is his courageous willingness to take on challenges. He showed it by leaving Bayern this summer when the Bavarian team is a team completely made to be favorites in the Champions League to change it for a Barça that has spent several seasons without rediscovering its referential level on the continent. His decisive appearance at the Barça club confirms that Lewandowski is willing to lead this challenge. Four goals and two assists adorn some initial statistics as culé who, tonight, want to add another notch: score against Sevilla,
