Robert Lewandowski: A Resurgence Before the Barcelona Match


In the realm of European football, Robert Lewandowski has weathered weeks of criticism, yet emerged with renewed acclaim. The narrative has shifted, especially in anticipation of Barcelona’s upcoming clash, where Spanish observers acknowledge a revitalized Lewandowski taking center stage.

“Still subject to relentless critique just weeks ago, now hailed as a hero,” we reflected following Wednesday’s showdown between Barcelona and Napoli in the Champions League round of 16, heralding the resurgence of the “great Lewandowski.”

On Wednesday, he notched a splendid goal in Naples and was crowned the game’s standout player, positioning Barcelona favorably ahead of the return leg.

In the Champions League, Lewandowski, with 93 goals to his name, solidified his place as the third-highest scorer of all time. Only Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal (140) and Argentina’s Lionel Messi (129) stand ahead, having expanded their careers beyond Europe, unlikely to augment their tallies further.

Lewandowski’s Reigniting Barcelona’s Faith

Amidst the fervor of Barcelona’s fanbase, all eyes eagerly track Robert Lewandowski’s goal tally in the Spanish league. Since the beginning of January, the Polish striker has netted nine times across all competitions, with four of those goals finding the back of the net in La Liga alone. Notably, these four strikes were amassed in February, spanning across three recent league fixtures.

It comes as no surprise then that faith has been restored both in the Barcelona team and in Lewandowski himself. The shift in narrative is palpable, even in the Spanish media, which for weeks had been critical of the Polish national team captain’s perceived lack of effectiveness.

This Saturday, another league fixture awaits the Catalans, with Spain heralding Lewandowski’s proximity to finally breaking the Getafe curse, an elusive goal that has thus far eluded him. As noted by “Marca,” the Madrid suburbs-based club is among the three against which Lewandowski hasn’t yet scored (alongside Almería and Las Palmas). The piece titled “Lewandowski’s Moment” is a tribute to the Pole, riding a wave of form, as the author emphatically underscores.

“Lewandowski will be keen to lift this curse and make Getafe his next victim,” we read. Should the Polish striker find the net this time, he will equal his best goal-scoring streak in Barcelona, a feat achieved back in 2022 when he scored in five consecutive matches (across La Liga and the Champions League).

In his pursuit of reclaiming the crown of top scorer, Lewandowski finds himself trailing behind, currently ranked sixth with a deficit of four goals to the leading marksman, Jude Bellingham. However, his ambitions align not only with personal accolades but also with Barcelona’s resurgence in the championship race.

With 13 matches remaining in the season and table-topping Real Madrid boasting an impressive 8-point lead, every goal becomes crucial for both Lewandowski’s individual pursuits and Barcelona’s collective quest for glory.
