Robert Lewandowski has set a new record in the German Bundesliga as he scored one of the goals in Bayern Munich’s season ending 3-1 win over Hannover 96.

The strike by Lewandowski on Saturday took his tally to 30 goals; a feat no foreigner as ever achieved in the German top flight.

Tipped to end the season on a high, the Bavarians never disappointed as they went into the half-time break two goals ahead with Lewandowski opening the scoring early on, before Mario Götze netted their second of the day on 28 minutes.

Götze added a second after the half-time break as Bayern threatened to run rampant in front of boisterous home support.

Though, Hannover managed to pull one back through Artur Sobiech in the 66th minute it was Bayern who ended the match on the front foot, going close to adding a fourth goal on more than one occasion in the closing stages of the match.

With Dortmund dropping points at home in their final home game, Bayern ended with a 10-point gap at the summit of the final Bundesliga table

Bayern, having already wrapped up a fourth straight Bundesliga title, will now turn their attention to the DFB Pokal against Dortmund on May 21 in what will be Pep Guardiola’s final match in charge before he takes over at Manchester City.
