Robert Lewandowski tweets Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after scoring hat-trick

Published 1 Comments

Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dominated the Bundesliga where goals were concerned last season.

Bayern Munich won the title and it was thanks to their star striker that they were able to do so, with the Poland international finding the back of the net 30 times.

They pipped rivals Borussia Dortmund who, like the Bavarians, relied upon Aubameyang's 25 goals to steer them to a high finish.

The very same was expected of the pair this season and, unsurprisingly, they've delivered.

Lewandowski scored a hat-trick as Bayern beat Werder Bremen 6-0 on Friday whilst Aubameyang struck twice during a narrow 2-1 win over Mainz yesterday.

The race to top this season's Bundesliga goalscoring charts is on.

It's easy to forget that Lewandowski and Aubameyang once played together at the Westfalenstadion, though, and it would seem they have their own little competition going on.

Following Lewandowski's hat-trick, Aubameyang tweeted his former teammate:

And when Aubemayang scored a brace, Lewandowski brilliantly returned the favour:


What's clear is the attacking duo use each other as motivation to score more goals - that's Lewandowski's approach anyway.

The 28-year-old said in May that he took inspiration from Aubameyang's incredible goalscoring form last term to improve his own tally.

He said, according to Goal: "To score 18 goals in the first half of the season is an amazing performance.


"During the winter break, when I had three goals fewer, I thought [Aubameyang] would maintain these performances in the second half of the season.

"I knew it would be hard but I thought: 'Now I have to go on, the second half of the season is also very important'.

"When I saw that he scored a goal, my motivation increased. At the moment I have 29 goals."

Looks like we're set for another exciting battle.
