Robert Lewandowski hailed a year to remember as his two goals helped Bayern Munich come from behind to beat Bayer Leverkusen and go top of the Bundesliga Saturday, capping a fantastic 12 months for him and his team.

Lewandowski’s injury-time winner completed another comeback victory for Bayern, ensuring the champion sit top of the standing, ahead of Leverkusen, going into the Christmas break.

That 93rd-minute goal took the Pole’s tally this calendar year to 32 just two days after becoming the first Bundesliga player to be crowned the world’s best at the Fifa Best Awards.

Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski was named The Best Fifa Men's Player 2020 Thursday, beating off competition from last year's winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

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.
