The Polish forward looks set to surpass the legendary player's record.
Bayern Munich has regained the Bundesliga title after beating Borussia Monchengladbach 6-0 at Allianz Arena on Saturday. The title is Bayern's ninth consecutive league trophy.
Winning the league is no herculean task for Bayern; after all, they have won it 30 times which is the most among any German club. However, the attention now goes to the prestigious club's striker Robert Lewandowski, who eagerly awaits playing the remaining matches.
Robert Lewandowski is looking ready to break Gerd Muller's goal scoring record.
Against Monchengladbach, the mercurial forward scored yet another hattrick taking his goal tally to an incredible 39 goals this season in the league. In terms of scoring goals this season, no one comes close to the Polish captain.
Robert is only a goal shy of the legendary German player Gerd Muller who has the most goals in a single campaign. The 32-year-old player is arguably the best striker of this generation and has every quality to become a perfect striker.

The Bavarians' current coach Hans-Dieter Flick has backed his player to break the record, which has lasted since 1971-72, which is mind-boggling. It will be an incredible feat for him to add to his extraordinary career.
With two matches left to be played for Bayern before the end of the season, it is only a matter of when rather than if he breaks the historic record.
