Robert Lewandowski could break a record set by Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
One of the marks the Man United forward established at Real Madrid might be surpassed this weekend.
This weekend, Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski might surpass a mark held by Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.
After eight years with Bayern Munich, the Polish icon relocated to Camp Nou in the summer. He had made the decision to seek out fresh opportunities. Some had doubted that he would be able to maintain his form from Bayern in Spain, but those doubts have already been dispelled.
Lewandowski, who has already scored 11 goals for Barcelona at age 34, still has a deadly touch in front of goal.
Lewandowski is on the verge of breaking Ronaldo’s record for most La Liga goals scored, which is currently held by him with eight.

Lewandowski will break the record for the most goals scored in a player’s first seven league games if he can score a hat-trick in his next game, which is away at Mallorca on Saturday night. Ronaldo set a record of 10 goals in the 2014–15 season that seemed insurmountable.
The Portuguese star will wish he was in Lewandowski’s current prolific scoring mode. Ronaldo, who was the Reds’ leading scorer the previous season with 18 goals, has only scored one for the team this season.
The great striker of Manchester United will have another opportunity to wow on Sunday when the Reds visit Manchester City. Erik ten Hag’s team will be two points closer to their competitors with a victory.
