Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski came off the bench this evening to stun Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.
The Polish international scored five goals in nine extraordinary minutes to help the Bavarians secure a 5-1 victory over their rivals.
With the German champions 1-0 down at half-time, boss Pep Guardiola made the decision to bring Lewandowski on in place of Thiago. And it certainly paid off.
Unsurprisingly, Lewandowski has become the fastest player in Bundesliga history to score five goals in one game.
In fact, no player has found the back of the net on five occasions in Germany's elite division since Michael Tonnies in 1991, which makes the Bayern star's accomplishment even more admirable.
He certainly filled his boots this evening, but it was his final strike that put the icing on the cake. As you can see below, it was rather special...
Ultimately, the 27-year-old will go down in the history books for tonight's wonderful performance. To have produced it against such a solid outfit in Wolfsburg, who currently sit in third place in the Bundesliga, is quite extraordinary.
One thing is for sure, Guardiola's side will take some stopping in this season's title race. Lewandowski and co. look more determined than ever to secure their fourth straight title. In fact, the whole of Europe will have to stand up and take note of the striker's performance this evening.
Can Lewandowski inspire Bayern to European success this season? Have your say below!
