#1 Football: Robert Lewandowski scores five goals in nine minutes

Robert Lewandowski five goals nine minutes Wolfsburg
Robert Lewandowski scored five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg

22 September It was half-time in the Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg and Pep Guardiola’s team were losing 1-0. The Spanish manager decided to shake things up at half-time and introduced Robert Lewandowski as a half-time substitute. 

Six minutes into the second half, Lewandowski equalised and the score read 1-1. Less than eight minutes later, Bayern were leading 5-1 with all goals coming from the Polish striker!

Wolfsburg couldn’t believe it, the fans couldn’t believe it, even Guardiola himself couldn’t believe it as he clutched his face and looked on in utter disbelief.

In doing so, Lewandowski got his first hat-trick for Bayern Munich and also set a number of records – including the fastest hat-trick in Bundesliga history, the first substitute to score five goals in Bundesliga history and the first person to score the fastest four goals (and five goals) in a match!
