Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski secured for himself a special piece of Spanish football history on Saturday evening.
Xavi Hernandez’s troops, of course, are currently locked in action.
Fresh off a quintet of successive league victories, the Blaugrana made the trip to Iberostar Stadium for a meeting with Mallorca, aware that another victory would guide them to the summit of the La Liga table.
And, as things stand in the Balearic Islands, all three points is precisely what the evening’s visitors look headed towards.
This comes with Barca in possession of a slender advantage, owing to a moment of brilliance on the part of the aforementioned Robert Lewandowski:
As alluded to above, though, Lewandowski’s latest strike has not only proven significant in guiding Saturday’s visitors into the lead.
In addition, it has seen the Polish international etch his name indellibly into the history books of Spanish football.
As per statisticians Opta, in finding the net against Mallorca, ‘Lewa’ became the fastest player to rack up nine goals in La Liga since the turn of the century.
This comes with the summer arrival in Catalunya having now notched in each of his seven league appearances in Barcelona colours.
