Robert Lewandowski came on as a substitute at half-time with Bayern Munich losing 1-0 to Wolfsburg and scored five goals in under nine minutes — the fastest by a player in Bundesliga history.
Lewandowski, 27, was on the bench for the Bundesliga game on Tuesday night but replaced Juan Bernat at half-time and got his side back into it immediately.
Five incredible goals followed in eight minutes, 59 seconds, between the first and the fifth — the fastest anyone has scored five in Bundesliga history, and Bayern won 5-1.
His first three goals came in the span of four minutes, the fastest hat trick in Bundesliga history.
Lewandoswki levelled the score with a toe poke from six yards in the 51st minute, and Bayern took the lead on his blast from 20 yards a minute later.
He had to work harder for his third goal in the 55th minute, first hitting the post and seeing his follow-up saved before finally finding the back of the net.
The fourth came in the 57th minute, when he scored from a cross on a high bounce. But he saved the best for last in the 60th minute, volleying Mario Gotze’s cross with a scissor kick to send the crowd further into raptures.
Bayern boss Pep Guardiola said after the match: “I don’t understand this, five goals! I have never in my life witnessed something like this whether as a player or a coach.
