Football: Soccer-Bayern’s Lewandowski breaks Mueller’s 49-year league scoring record on final day


MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) – Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski on Saturday broke Gerd Mueller’s 49-year-old Bundesliga goal-scoring record for a season when he scored in the last minute of their last match of the season, a 5-2 win over Augsburg, taking his tally to 41 goals, one more than the former Bayern great.

The Poland striker is already second on the all-time scorers list in the Bundesliga, with 277 goals now, behind only Mueller’s 365. Mueller set the previous record in the 1971/72 season with 40 goals, which Lewandowski equalled last week.
