Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski has endured a torrid run in front of goal and his form has appeared to have tailed off from his bursting form which he started the season with. 

Lewandowski has failed to score in 9 of his last 10 games against sides like Almeria, Athletic Bilbao, Real Madrid ×2, Czech Republic, Albania, Girona, Getafe and Atletico Madrid scoring only against Elche.

Before his goal against Elche on the 1st of April, the 34-year-old last netted in February against Manchester United. 

The former Borussia Dortmund attacker has found it hard to find the back of the net this year as he scored just 9 goals in 18 appearances for Barcelona. 

Robert Lewandowski joined Barcelona in the summer of 2022 after 8 successful years with German giants Bayern Munich.

The Polish attacker was really devastating at Bayern Munich and he scored 344 goals in 375 matches for the club. 

Before joining Bayern Munich in 2014, he was at Borussia Dortmund from 2010 till 2014 where he was equally monstrous. 

Robert Lewandowski netted 103 goals in 187 games for Borussia Dortmund and he won the German Bundesliga twice alongside 1 DFB-Pokal and 1 DFL-Supercup. 

The 34-year-old joined Spanish heavyweights Barcelona in July 2022 for a deal reported to be €45-million and he started the current season brightly. 

A man considered to be one of the greatest strikers of all time is facing a phase that has seen his goals bank dry up in 9 out of the past 10 matches. 

He earns €350,577 per week and despite his form, he has assisted Barcelona to the summit of the La Liga table 11 points ahead of fiercest rival Real Madrid who sit 2nd.

In the UEFA Champions League, he netted 5 goals and following Barcelona’s drop to the Round Of 32 of the UEFA Europa League he scored a goal in the competition. 

The former Lech Poznan forward scored two goals in the Copa Del Rey and cumulatively he has scored 25 goals across all competitions for the Blaugrana. 

There has been reports of recent that Barcelona have made Chelsea’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang their top target for the summer alongside Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino. 

This has resulted in several assumptions over the reason why the Spanish giants have made Aubameyang their top target for the summer despite signing Lewandowski just last summer. 

Meanwhile, some section of individuals think it is due to Robert Lewandowski’s inconsistency in attack for Barcelona. 

Anyway, the two-time The Best FIFA Men’s Player Of The Year is presently the top scorer in the La Liga with 17 goals to his name, 3 goals ahead of closest challenger Karim Benzema in spite of his drop in form.
