Robert Lewandowski described the duel with Bayern Munich as a “lesson for us”. At a press conference of the Polish national team, the striker explained that FC Barcelona did not expect “to be able to impose our style and create so many chances. Now we know that we can do it”.
This game showed “that we can also create chances in tough games”. Away from the sporting aspects of this encounter in the Champions League, Lewandowski was “not able to completely hide his feelings because I haven’t left Bayern Munich for that long”.
Accordingly, it was impossible “to suppress all these feelings. It was more than a game for me, it was an emotional game”. On his return, the Pole was received mostly positively in the Allianz Arena. The 34-year-old described the fans of his former club as “very intelligent” because they knew how to “distinguish between what is written in the media and the truth”.
It wasn’t enough for a sense of achievement in Munich. Despite a good performance, Barça lost the game 2-0 and Lewandowski missed several good chances. In terms of the future, however, the attacker seems to be in a positive mood. Especially since he thinks one of his big career goals is within reach. “I know that FC Barcelona is the team with the most Ballon d’Or winners,” said Lewandowski. “I think the way to the Ballon d’Or is shorter at Barça than at Bayern.”
Although he was goalless against FC Bayern, he has already scored eight goals and two assists in six games in the Primera Division.
