Poland’s star striker, Robert Lewandowski, is back in top form in La Liga. In his third consecutive league match, he not only found the back of the net but also provided two assists, earning well-deserved praise from Spanish journalists. Let’s delve into his outstanding performance against Real Betis.
In the 32nd minute, Lewandowski scored his third league goal of the season, elevating his team to a 2-0 lead. His ability to create scoring opportunities and collaborate effectively with Joao Felix and Ferran Torres caught the attention of both “Mundo Deportivo” and “Sport.”
While acknowledging that it wasn’t quite on the level of Maradona’s iconic goal with Enrique in 1986, “Mundo Deportivo” praised Lewandowski’s teamwork and referenced the famous Maradona goal, drawing parallels to Lewandowski’s assist for Raphinha’s brilliant strike.
“Sport” awarded Lewandowski a rating of “7” for his performance. Higher ratings were reserved for Joao Cancelo, Oriol Romeu, Gavi, Ferran Torres, Joao Felix, and Raphinha. The publication emphasized Lewandowski’s improved chemistry with Joao Felix and Ferran Torres, allowing fans to witness the Lewandowski of old.
With the opportunity to further improve his goal tally, Lewandowski will face Royal Antwerp FC in the first round of the Champions League. Afterward, Barcelona will take on Celta Vigo in La Liga on Saturday, September 23rd.
