Bayern manager Pep Guardiola will have enjoyed watching his star striker display such confidence after finding the net just once in the league in December.

The forward has scored 23 goals this season and with skills like this, Guardiola will expect his top striker to return to his early-season form. Lewandowski scored 14 goals in September and October combined, including a remarkable run of 12 goals in four games.

Despite this, Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the Bundesliga goalscoring chart with 18 goals, three more than Lewandowski.

Bayern have an eight-point lead over Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga and return from the winter break against Karlsruher SC in a friendly on January 16. They resume domestic action against Hamburg on January 22.

The Bavarians have scored 13 goals combined in their previous two meetings with Hamburg, so it's the perfect opportunity for Lewandowski to return to form.

A goal akin to the one in training will help.

Will Robert Lewandowski surpass Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang atop the Bundesliga scoring chart?
