Robert Lewandowski scored his 44th goal of the season in Bayern Munich's thumping 4-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

The Polish season is officially enjoying his best season in front of goal, with 30 strikes in the Bundesliga.

And with four more games still to play, he's likely to add to that tally.

The 31-year-old was largely quiet against Leverkusen until he popped up in the 66th minute to head home Thomas Muller's cross.

He's in the conversation to win the Ballon d'Or this year and it's hard to put any other striker in the world ahead of him right now.

Yeah, we said it. 

Bayern are heading towards another Bundesliga title and Lewandowski's goals have contributed heavily to that.

Just how good has he been? Well, Muller recently suggested he would rather play with Lewandowski than either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Maybe in my past years I would like to play with Leo Messi, because in the first six or seven years of my career, I was more the receiving striker," Muller said, per Goal.

"I got the ball in the box and tried to score. In the moment right now, in my very good shape at the moment, I assist many goals.

"Maybe now I need more a Cristiano Ronaldo to score the goals, but we at Bayern have Robert 'Lewan-goal-ski'! I think maybe right now he is the better option than Cristiano.

It's time to acknowledge that Lewandowski is doing it better than anyone else right now.
