2021-03-05T17:25:29.132Z

Bayern Munich host Borussia Dortmund this Saturday (6.30 p.m.), in the shock of this 24th day of the Bundesliga. The opportunity to see the two extraterrestrials that are Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland opposed.



Bayern Munich versus Borussia Dortmund.

It's not just the shock of Matchday 24 in the Bundesliga.

It is not only the confrontation between the reigning champion and his runner-up either.

No, it's also the opposition between two of the best center-forwards on the planet, namely Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland.

Two players so far apart on several levels - age, characteristics etc.

- but which come together in excellence.

Robert Lewandowski's effectiveness against Borussia Dortmund

Phenomenal statistics

When it comes to attackers, the statistics are never far away.

The football community tends to primarily measure the impact of an attacking player through the number of goals scored and the number of assists delivered.

We often forget the role that these elements can play in the recovery, the conservation of the ball, the creation of spaces or even the pressing.

But when we look at the number of achievements and the number of offerings of these two monsters, we see that they are very significant.

Be careful, the following figures can make you dizzy.

34 goals and 8 assists in 32 matches in all club competitions, including 28 goals and 6 caviars in 22 Bundesliga games and 4 goals in 5 Champions League appearances.

So much for Robert Lewandowski.

The Pole crashes about every 80 minutes.

Just that.

He is quite simply the top scorer in the 2020-2021 financial year so far.

But Erling Haaland, who comes second in this ranking along with Cristiano Ronaldo, is not left out.

27 goals and 8 assists in 27 matches, including 17 goals in 18 Bundesliga games and above all 8 goals in 5 C1 matches, making him the top scorer in the big-eared cup.

The Norwegian nugget is hitting the net every 84 minutes this season.

Gargantuan statistics!

Among the very best "scorers" of the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the Bavarian and the Borussia player are the only ones who score on average more than one goal per game.

In comparison, Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates a goal every 94 minutes, Romelu Lukaku every 102 minutes, Lionel Messi every 122 minutes and Kylian Mbappé every 103 minutes.

Atalanta Bergamo striker Luis Muriel has a similar ratio to Robert Lewandowski (1 goal / 79 minutes), but his volume of goals - 18 - is much lower.

This Saturday is therefore the confrontation of two extraterrestrials.

Three confrontations to the advantage of the Bavarian

It won't be the first time that the Pole and the Norwegian have faced each other.

The two center-forwards have already played three times on the same lawn.

And the debates are rather unbalanced when it comes to the number of victories.

If the 20-year-old player stood out the most against his elder brother, it is the one who was named Fifa Best Football of the Year in 2020 who has consistently won with his team.

In 2020-2021, BVB and Bayern have already been opposed twice;

two meetings which ended in a 3-2 victory for the Bavarian club.

In the German Supercup, Erling Haaland had deceived the vigilance of Manuel Neuer to equalize;

Robert Lewandowski himself had remained silent.

But the former Borussia striker had regained his voice in the first leg of the championship, a meeting in which the ex-player of RB Salzburg had again shaken the nets, but was still tilted.

Last season, in their first face-to-face, the two scorers were not decisive.

It was Joshua Kimmich who offered the three points to the Bavarian club (0-1).

On Saturday, they will focus all the attention.

And it wouldn't be surprising to see one of the two prove to be decisive.
