Robert Lewandowski equals Cristiano Ronaldo’s La Liga record in Barcelona win over Sevilla

The Pole was back on the scoresheet once more this evening


Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski secured a place for himself in the history books of Spanish football on Saturday night.

Lewandowski and co, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

Fresh off a pair of dominant victories over Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid respectively, the Blaugrana made the trip to Andalusia, for what, on paper, looked an altogether more testing assignment up against Sevilla.

When all was said and done, though, the head-turning stretch of form being enjoyed by Xavi’s troops only continued.

Goals on the part of all of Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and Eric Garcia ultimately culminated in a 3-0 final scoreline at the Sanchez Pizjuan, guiding Barca into 2nd in the La Liga table.

Collective triumph aside, though, as alluded to above, the Blaugrana’s victory on Saturday also proved a noteworthy one for one member of Xavi’s ranks in particular.

The player in question? Robert Lewandowski.

Hitman Lewandowski was on target once more against Sevilla, getting on the end of fellow Barca summer signing Jules Kounde’s lofted ball into the penalty area:

And, in the process, ‘Lewa’ joined an altogether exclusive La Liga club.

As per statisticians Opta, the former Bayern Munich talisman tonight established himself as just the 3rd player since the turn of the century to find the net on five occasions across his first four La Liga appearances.

The only others to have managed as much? Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao.
