The win at Leverkusen was the champion’s final match of a remarkable 2020, in which they won five trophies including the Champions League, finishing the calendar year having tasted just one loss in all competition.
Bayern did fall behind for the seventh successive Bundesliga match, but in each of those seven games they have not lost.
Lewandowski’s goals ended Leverkusen’s unbeaten start to this Bundesliga season and their coach Peter Bosz felt the defeat was unjust, having seen his side take the lead through Patrik Schick’s fine volley.
