Robert Lewandowski moved to Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund this summer on a free transfer — another example of soccer’s rich getting richer. Saturday in a friendly vs. Borussia Monchengladbach — Fabian Johnson’s new club — the Polish striker scored a goal that even Dmitar Berbatov would label casual.
Lewandowski collected a deflected shot at the top of the penalty area and calmly lobbed it over four defenders and the Gladback keeper. Sure it’s only a meaningless summer club friendly, but still a very nice goal. A couple German bros seemed to like it in the video.
Franck Ribery, Lewandoski and Arjen Robben is a pretty nice little forward line for manager Pep Guardiola to roll out there, right? Throw in German World Cup winners Mario Götze, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, Thomas Müller and Philipp Lahm and you’ve got a team that might, just might be in good shape to win the Bundesliga as well as a deep run into the Champions League.
