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

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?
