Wednesday’s match between FC Bayern Munich and VfL Wolfsburg ended 2-1 to the hosts as Robert Lewandowski managed to secure a brace for the hosts.
Indeed, in doing so, the Poland international became just the third player to break the 250-goal mark in the division’s history, with legendary attackers Gerd Muller and Klaus Fischer the two men to have already achieved the impressive feat.
There is no doubting that Lewandowski has been one of the best strikers that the world has seen in modern times, as he has proven to be clinical in each of the seasons he has been involved in the Bundesliga, whether it be for Borussia Dortmund in his early days or for Bayern Munich. Therefore, perhaps this is why it is no surprise that the top league in Germany can have a winner tipped so easily.
However, who has he managed to score the 251 goals against in Germany’s top-flight competition? Thankfully, the Bundesliga’s official English Twitter account provided fans with a nice nifty video that outlines just who he has scored against.

As can be seen from the video, Wednesday night’s opponents VfL Wolfsburg know all about the Poland international as he has scored most of his goals against them. By adding the two he netted in the game, he now has a total of 23 strikes to his name throughout his career.
That total is four more than the next opponent, with FC Augsburg coming in second place. However, that might be because they spend time between the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga, thus not seeing Lewandowski on a too regular occasion.
Strugglers Schalke 04 are next as they have conceded 18 times to the Pole, whilst SV Werder Bremen, SC Freiburg and Borussia Dortmund – the club he once played for remember – have each seen him score on 17 occasions against them.
1. FSV Mainz have conceded 16 times, whereas Hamburger SV have seen Lewandowski net an impressive 15 times. Hannover 96 have shipped 14 goals, whereas 1.FC Koln and Hertha Berlin have each allowed him to score 12 times.
Rounding off the double figures are both TSG Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt – thus making it 12 teams in which he has achieved double figures against!
VfB Stuttgart have conceded just eight, whereas 1. FC Nurenburg have shipped seven. RB Leipzig and SC Paderborn 07 have shipped six each, whilst FC Ingolstadt 04 have conceded four.
Of course, expect that list to grow even further over the course of the 20/21 Bundesliga season and the coming editions, as the Poland international certainly has not shown any desire to slow down, despite being in his 30s.
