Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski put a performance for the ages, coming in as a sub and scoring 5 goals in a 9 minute span. He’s scored more league goals this season than 9 bundesliga clubs and even some english clubs; Liverpool inclusive. 

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.

Robert Lewandowski came off the bench to score in quick succession.

“I am very satisfied, that was incredible,” he told Sky. “I just wanted to shoot, I didn’t really think what will happen afterwards. Having been one down, we knew that we must improve and score twice at least. But five goals, that’s incredible.”

The striker became the first substitute to score five in the German top flight, but admitted he was shocked when he looked at the scoreboard.

“I don’t know how fast it was, but it was fast,” he added. “But when you’re on the pitch, you’re just focused on football. After the fourth I looked at the scoreboard, it was the 60th minute and I only thought: ‘Ooh.’

“Guardiola didn’t need to say anything, I know what I have to do on the pitch. But it was only one game, we have to win the next games as well. We are Bayern Munich.”

Lewandowski was asked to compare the game to Dortmund’s 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid in the 2013 Champions League semifinal, in which he scored four.

“It was a very important game. That was a very big event in my life,” he said. “Now five goals, that is a great night for me. But there are many games to go, and it won’t be that easy to score in every game.”

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.

“Five goals against Wolfsburg is not easy. I am very, very happy for Robert. For his self-esteem and our future this is very important. I can not explain this.”

Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking added: “What can I say. A world-class strike shot five times on goal and could have scored seven. This is how it felt for us. But no matter the quality something like this can not happen. We had a good first half, Bayern could not get any flow. Then these nine minutes come, one cannot explain this.”
