Robert Lewandowski of Barcelona has joined Cristiano Ronaldo in the La Liga record books.
Lewandowski had 15 goals in his first 19 LaLiga appearances, making him the second-fastest player in the championship in the twenty-first century (Cristiano Ronaldo, 15 in 17 games in 2009/10).
Barcelona are now back in action.
After a 2-2 draw with Manchester United in midweek, Xavi Hernandez’s men switched their attentions back to local affairs. He hoped to rebuild the club’s 8pts lead at top of Spain’s premier division at the cost of relegation-battling Cadiz.
In the Camp Nou, two quick goals on the stroke of halftime. The first goal was from Sergi Roberto and the second by the aforementioned Lewandowski. Those two goals were enough to give the evening’s hosts a 2-0 victory.
The Polish Striker Lewandowski created history by adding the final touches to his team’s most recent victory.
The summer signing in Catalunya became the second-fastest player to score 15 La Liga goals in just 19 games on Sunday.
Unsurprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player to have achieved as much in less appearances.
