The summer break between the two championships of the German Bundesliga was marked by numerous changes of coaches. The new chiefs of professional staffs were given to the six first-placed teams in the previous season, and not only them. This year in the Bundesliga, we will not see Werder Bremen, still the current record holder in the number of appearances in the elite, but also the former champion Schalke from Gelsenkirchen. The newcomers are returnees Greuther Furth and Bochum.
Since the founding of the Bundesliga in 1963, 43 different footballers have been the league’s top scorers. The record holder for the number of goals scored in one Bundesliga season is Robert Lewandowski who broke Gerd Mueller’s 49-year-old record for the number of goals in a single league season last season. Mueller is in the 1971/72 season. scored 40 goals and now that record is held by Lewandowski with 41 goals. Gerd Müller is the most successful footballer in the number of seasons in which he was the league's top scorer. He accomplished that feat seven times. Since the 1965/66 season. the German sports newspaper Kicker-Sportmagazin awards the Torjägerkanone award to the league's top scorer. The first foreign footballer to be the top scorer of the season was Norwegian Jorn Andersen in the 1989/90 season. The oldest footballer to be the top scorer of the season is Martin Max 2001/02. who was 33 years old, while Gerd Müller in the 1966/67 season was the youngest top scorer at 21 years old. A total of ten times the title of top scorer of the season was shared. The most successful club is Bayern, a total of 17 times the top scorer was the Bayern footballer. Also, 15 times the top scorer of the season was the footballer who was included in the best team of the championship.
Last season in Bundesliga the title race wasn’t very interesting but the race for best player was very tight to the very end.
Although Lewandowski broke the record at Bayern and won the Golden Boot for the first time in his career, Robert Lewandowski is not the best player in the Bundesliga. So say the fans who gave the trophy to Erling Haaland with their votes.
The Norwegian received the award, which is awarded every year on the basis of a vote in which fans participate. He finished the Bundesliga with 27 goals and six assists and, although that is quite an excellent statistic, the fact is that Lewandowski completely dominated in Germany.
The Polish striker scored as many as 41 goals with 29 assists in 29 games played, he was convincingly the best scorer and it seems that the fans missed the opportunity to reward the great games of the Bayern striker.
Lewandowski broke the Bundesliga record for the number of goals in one season, which was previously held by Ger Miller with 40 goals, and he was also, for the first time, the best scorer in Europe. However, could use the trophy as a motivation to one day try to achieve the success of the Polish striker. And perhaps it is what this league missed to be more interesting and to become more competitive.
The new season starter and even in the first round we can see that, these great strikers will continue their fight from last season for winning the award top goalscorer and best player of the league. The Pole scored as many as 41 goals with 29 assists in 29 games played, he is convincingly the best scorer and it seems that the fans missed the opportunity to reward the great games of the Bayern striker.
Lewandowski scored in the opening match of the season against Bor. Monchengladbach while Haaland is on fire from round 1 as he scored twice and assist three times in a 5:2 win over E. Frankfurt.
According to bookmakers Lewandowski is favorite to be the top goals scorer of Bundesliga and this season and he is motivated not only by his competition but also, he is trying to break some more records. Second is Haaland who unlike Lewandowski who has amazing support from his teammates is more pushing on his individual skills.
It is selfish not to mention other players which of course can surprise and score even more goals than these two. A. Silva from E. Frankfurt is one of them, Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg is also mentioned and A. Kramaric as potential winners of top goal scorers of Bundesliga.
