Former Bayern Munich striker Gerd Muller holds the record of scoring 40 Bundesliga goals from 34 league games in a 1971-72 season but Elber who scored 139 goals during his six-year stay with Munich is backing Lewandowski to break 47 years record held by German great.
The Brazilain told Bild: "I don’t know how you can do it. Without him, it would be so difficult for Bayern,"
"I’ve always thought that nobody can break that record. But now I believe. Robert could do it!", he added.
Lewandoski needs to score 28 or more goals to break the record set by Muller but the Poland skipper could become the first player to ever score in each of the first nine games of a Bundesliga campaign if he found back of the net against Union Berlin this weekend.
