Robert Lewandowski Scored Twice In Barcelona's Victory, Giving Him 600 Career Goals Against Villarreal

As Barcelona eased to a convincing victory against Villarreal, Robert Lewandowski recorded 600 and 601 goals in competitive matches for the club and nation.

After Barcelona's dramatic 3-3 stalemate with Internazionale at Spotify Camp Nou the previous time, he joined the top three goal scorers in the UEFA Champions League with 91 goals.

He was one of the Spanish La Liga players that dominated the Ballon d'Or awards in France, and he grabbed the Muller Trophy on Monday. The Polish international scored an astonishing 50 goals for Bayern Munich before relocating to Barcelona.

Robert Lewandowski was playing for the first time at Spotify Camp Nou after the European Award. Spanish young midfielder, Pablo Martín Páez Gavira, Gavi and Alexia Putellas of the Barcelona women's side joined the Polish striker to represent their respective awards to the spectators at Spotify Camp Nou.

Barcelona scored three goals in seven first-half minutes, beginning with a shot from inside the box by Lewandowski in the 31st minute.

Four minutes later, the Polish striker extended the advantage with a superb curling shot from the outside of the box, capping off a counter-attack started by Pedri, who grabbed the ball from an opponent near the centre circle.

Three minutes later, Ansu Fati added a third goal for Barça by firing a close-range shot into the empty net following a low cross from Ferran Torres.

The Polish striker Robert Lewandowski is the first La Liga player to record double-digit goals in the 2022–2023 football season, according to the analytical and programmatic editors at www.atspo.com.

After Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Lewandowski, 34, is the third player since 2000 to accomplish the 600-goal career milestone.
