Player to watch – Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski has found form again with the 35 year old moving onto 18 goals and eight assists in La Liga this season in the Spanish top flight. He’s netted five in his last five to briefly threaten the Pichichi race but Villarreal's Alexander Sørloth is now surely out of reach after the Norwegian scored four last weekend.

Lewandowski’s late impact

67% of the goals scored by the Polish striker this season in La Liga have been in the Second Half. The veteran has scored seven times after the 75th minute, including two goals in Stoppage Time.
