Berlin: Robert Lewandowski now can target on becoming the top scorer in both the Bundesliga and the European Champions League this season, after netting home a penalty in Bayern Munich's last domestic league match on Saturday.

The in-form Polish striker converted a spot kick in Bayern's 4-0 rout of Wolfsburg and overwhelmed the scoring tally with 34 goals, the highest total in all the five major leagues this season up to now.

Lazio's Ciro Immobile has 28 goals, and Cristiano Ronaldo has 23 to lead Serie A, while Lionel Messi leads with 21 goals in La Liga. Jamie Vardy tops the Premier League with 19 goals, while Kylian Mbappe is on top of the already cancelled Ligue 1 at 18.

Of course, Immobile, Ronaldo, and Messi still have the chance to chase and surpass Lewandowski in the rest of their league games.

The 31-year-old Polish international has topped the Bundesliga scoring table five times, and now he gets the challenge to break Messi and Ronaldo's dominance in Europe.

The pair have been the top scorers in the Champions League for the last 12 seasons (the only slight exception being 2014/15 when the duo shared the podium with Neymar when all three finished with ten goals). This season, Lewandowski has scored 11 in Europe's showpiece club competition, while Messi and Ronaldo have scored two, respectively. IANS
