Lewandowski is dominant in the goalscoring standings for the 2019/20 campaign as well. Notably, in spite of his increase in age and the Bundesliga’s continuous improvement, Lewy’s stats only seem to get better each year.
At the time of writing, he has scored 29 goals. He is just one goal away from his personal best. Timo Werner trails by a four-goal gap, while Jadon Sancho, Jhon Cordoba, and Rouwen Hennings round up the Top 5.
Contemporary players among the Bundesliga’s all-time goalscorers
Lewandowski is the only active player featured in the Bundesliga all-time top scorer list. Given his fruitful recent campaigns, the striker stands a good chance of soon climbing to the second spot on the list. However, with more than 130 goals between himself and Gerd Muller’s all-time record, it looks like not even Bayern Munich’s forward will be able to knock der Bomber off the summit.
Few active players are featured among the league’s all-time scorers. This is a testament to the wonderful strikers that preceded them. Of those still playing, Marco Reus is highest up the list, tied for 25th place with Dieter Hoeneß, having scored 127 times. Vedad Ibisevic trails not far behind with 125 goals to his name. Thomas Muller is the only other active player to make the Bundesliga Top 50.
