Robert Lewandowski joins Haaland in exclusive club after hitting career milestone in Barcelona’s win over Villarreal

The summer arrival in Spain was at the double this evening


A head-turning pair of statistics surrounding the goalscoring endeavours of Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski have surfaced on Thursday.

The name of hitman Lewandowski, of course, has taken its place centre stage in the Spanish football headlines this evening.
