Lewandowski double keeps Bayern’s treble hopes alive
Robert Lewandowski scored two goals to help Bayern beat Bochum 3-0 at their home ground. The result assures Munich a place in the German Cup semi-finals and keeps them on track for the coveted treble.
The DFB Pokal, also called the German Cup is an annual domestic knockout cup competition similar to England’s FA Cup or the Copa del Rey in Spain. While 64 German teams start the competition, Bayern have made it to the semis and are favorites to win.
In Thursday’s game, Lewandowski showed why he is considered as one of the hottest strikers in football when he opened the scoring for Bayern and scored his second in the dying minutes of the match. Thiago Alcantara scored the other goal on the hour mark.
Lewandowski is known around the world as the substitute player who scored five goals in less than nine minutes back in September. Since then, has been a prolific scorer for Bayern often getting braces and hat-tricks in a match.
