Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski broke Gerd Muller's 49-year-old Bundesliga goal-scoring record for a single season on Saturday when he scored in the last minute of their last match, a 5-2 win over Augsburg, taking his tally to 41 goals, one more than the former Bayern great.
The Poland striker is already second on the all-time scorers list in the Bundesliga, with 277 goals now, behind only Mueller's 365. Mueller set the previous record in the 1971/72 season with 40 goals, which Lewandowski equalled last week.
Lewandowski missed more than half a dozen clear scoring chances in the game and looked set to miss out on the record, with Augsburg determined not to let him add to his tally and snatch the record away from Muller, a youth idol of Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl.
With coach Hansi Flick and several players of the old guard -- Javi Martinez, David Alaba and Jerome Boateng -- bidding farewell to the club, and 250 invited fans in the 75,000-seat arena, it was an emotional afternoon for Bayern with the championship long wrapped up.
Gnabry then headed in their second goal in the 23rd after Gikiewicz had saved a point blank effort by Lewandowski.
Kingsley Coman also got onto the scoresheet, scoring two minutes before the break, with his low crisp shot whizzing past Gikiewicz.
