Bayern Munich may have already claimed the title of German champions for this season but that didn’t stop a stubborn Freiburg side from holding them to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.
Hansi Flick’s side had very little left to play for aside from individual merit and some notable history making.
After Thomas Muller went down in the box under a challenge from a nearby defender, the referee pointed to the spot and Lewandowski stepped up to convert the opportunity.
As expected, the Poland international slotted the ball away with ease and in doing so equalled Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a single league season from 1972.
On Saturday the German international did exactly that and somewhat stole the limelight from Lewandowski by bagging a winning goal against a stubborn Freiburg side.
Following the home side’s equaliser, the former Schalke youth player used his blistering pace to find space in the box and happily tap home a second for his club, via a smart assist from Thomas Muller.
While this may have been a match that was overshadowed by Bayern Munich's individual achievements, it was also a game in which winger Vincenzo Grifo undoubtedly thrived for Freiburg.
Not only did the Italian midfielder fire the cross in for Freiburg's first goal after 29 minutes but he was also on hand to bag a second assist for the home side's equaliser late on in the second half when he set up Christian Gunter to fire home a shot from the edge of the box.
