Robert Lewandoski was once again on target against Freiburg to equal Gerd Muller’s Bundesliga record of 40 goals in a single season set 49-years ago.
Gerd Muller set the record back in 1972 netting an average goal in every 77 minutes in the entire season which has now been equaled by Lewandoski who has netted an average goal in every 58 minutes.
