Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has his sights set on breaking the Bundesliga’s all-time record for scoring in consecutive home matches when Bayern Munich host Hertha Berlin at the Allianz Arena on .
The prolific Pole opened the scoring in the league leaders’ 2-1 victory over Schalke on Saturday, becoming the only player in German top-flight history other than Jupp Heynckes to have netted in 11 successive home games since the beginning of a season.
"I’m really happy to have moved level with Jupp,” a delighted Lewandowski told reporters following the narrow victory over the Royal Blues.
"It’s a great feeling to have equalled
his record, but now I want to score another in our next home game!
"I hope the coach doesn’t get jealous and decides not to play me from the start. Seriously, though, he was a great player and a great striker.
"I’m really happy to work with him. We often talk about certain situations and he always tries to help me if he thinks I can improve." Lewandowski told Bundesliga official website
The 29-year-old has made the scoresheet in his last two league appearances against the Old Lady, although both those games took place at Berlin’s Olympiastadion.
