Lewandowski features in Bundesliga’s all-time top 10 goalscorers

 Robert Lewandowski features in Bundesliga’s all-time top 10 goalscorers List.

Since its Inauguration in 1963, the Bundesliga has been home to some of football’s greatest goalscorers. Gerd Müller is the league's most successful ever in that regard with a seemingly unassailable 365 goals, but Robert Lewandowski is into the top three and by no means done yet.

Here are the Bundesliga’s all-time top 10 goalscorers:

1) Gerd Müller

Club: Bayern Munich

Goals: 365

Games: 427

Minutes per goal: 105.

In 1971/72, he set the record for goals in a single season by netting 40 times – despite missing three penalties!

2) Klaus Fischer

Club: 1860 Munich, Schalke, Cologne, Bochum

Goals: 268

Games: 535

Minutes per goal: 173

Fischer greatest hour was when he scored four in a famous 7-0 win for Schalke over Bayern.

3) Robert Lewandowski

Club: Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich

Goals: 259

Games: 338

Minutes per goal: 105

The Polish international already has more goals than any other non-German player in Bundesliga history and is on track to become the first to land four successive top scorer's cannons.

4) Jupp Heynckes

Club: Borussia Mönchengladbach, Hannover

Goals: 220

Games: 369

Minutes per goal: 147

Known now as one of German football’s greatest ever coaches after leading Bayern to the treble in 2013.    Heynckes was a key element in Gladbach’s golden age, winning four Bundesliga titles during the 1970s.

5) Manfred Burgsmüller

Club: Rot-Weiß Essen, Borussia Dortmund, Nuremberg, Werder Bremen

Goals: 213

Games: 447

Minutes per goal: 168

For over 30 years he sat fourth on the all-time scoring chart before Lewandowski drew level.   He remains to this date Dortmund’s all-time top scorer in the Bundesliga (135 goals).

6) Claudio Pizarro

Club: Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich, Cologne

Goals: 197

Games: 490

Minutes per goal: 156

The Peruvian, spanned 20 years at Bundesliga, has found the back of the net in the German top flight in every calendar year since 1999 when he was first signed by Bremen. 

7) Ulf Kirsten

Club: Bayer Leverkusen

Goals: 182

Games: 350

Minutes per goal: 152

He finished as top scorer in the Bundesliga three times (1992/93, 1996/97, 1997/98)...

8) Stefan Kuntz

Club: Bochum, Uerdingen, Kaiserslautern, Arminia Bielefeld

Goals: 179

Games: 449

Minutes per goal: 213

The current Germany U21 coach finished as top scorer in 1985/86 and 1993/94, and he sensationally won the league with Kaiserslautern in 1990/91.

9) Dieter Müller

Club: Kickers Offenbach, Cologne, VfB Stuttgart, Saarbrücken

Goals: 177

Games: 303

Minutes per goal: 147

He was a league’s top scorer in 1976/77, netting 34 times, & won the title in 1978. That season he became the first and so far only player to score six goals in a single Bundesliga game as Cologne hammered Bremen 7-2.

10) Klaus Allofs

Club: Fortuna Düsseldorf, Cologne, Werder Bremen

Goals: 177

Games: 424

Minutes per goal: 195

In 1982/83 became the first person to finish as top scorer for two different clubs, for Fortuna Düsseldorf and Cologne...
