RObert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland once again impressively demonstrated their extra class and delighted the fans in Spain and England. The two former Bundesliga goalscorers remain the attractions in La Liga and the Premier League. Especially at the troubled FC Bayern, the view should currently go enviously in the direction of Spain.
Your coaches at FC Barcelona and Manchester City, Xavi and Pep Guardiola, are running out of superlatives given the impressive goal series by Lewandowski and Haaland. “We knew that he scored goals and made the difference. But his personal side surprised me. He brings a lot of humility, devotion and greed. He works very hard for the team to be successful,” said Xavi after the 3-0 (2-0) win over FC Elche, his goalkeeper Robert Lewandowski, who scored twice this time.
"He just keeps going"
Former BVB striker Haaland, who caused a sensation during the week with his spectacular kung fu goal against Dortmund in the premier class, was successful once against Wolverhampton Wanderers. "He just keeps going, that's great," Guardiola summed up the Norwegian's performance in the 3-0 win.
For the 22-year-old Haaland it was already hit number 14 in City's tenth competitive game, and he continues to break all records on the island. A professional has never scored in his first four away games.
Lewandowski has eight goals in six league games for Barca. Thanks to the 34-year-old striker, who set numerous records in Munich, the Catalans' hopes of their first championship since 2019 are back. "The enthusiasm of the fans is palpable," said Xavi.
And the protagonists? They are unexcited on social media. Next to a picture with his well-known cheering fists pose, Lewandowski wrote succinctly: "Job well done" - the job well done. Haaland presented himself to his millions of followers with outstretched arms and the words: “Great performance before the international break. Happy to score again.”
