No Robert Lewandowski? No problem! Bayern Munich score 20th goal in four games

Bayern Munich were at their ruthless best as they powered to a 7-0 victory over VfL Bochum.

Leroy Sane, Matthijs de Ligt, Kingsley Coman, Sadio Mane, Cristian Gamboa (own goal) and Serge Gnabry were all on the scoresheet as the Bavarians maintained their perfect start to the Bundesliga season. 

Former Liverpool forward Mane bagged a brace as he extended his early goalscoring run for Bayern to four in as many competitive games.

The reigning champions have won all three of their league matches, and also picked up the Super Cup win over RB Leipzig earlier in the season.

This means Julian Nagelsmann's side have now scored 20 goals in just four competitive outings since the start of the campaign.

Bayern remain the only team in the Bundesliga to maintain their perfect start, and as a result, they have already opened up a two-point gap at the top of the standings.

Their sizable win also means they are the first team in the German top tier to reach double figures when it comes to goals scored.

This certainly spells good news for a side which lost arguably their best goalscorer in a generation.

Robert Lewandowski moved from Bavaria to Barcelona during the summer transfer window after spending eight seasons at the club.

The Polish international scored 344 goals in 375 appearances and ended his time in Germany by becoming the Bundesliga's second-greatest goalscorer.

Lewandowski scored a total of 312 goals in the competition - just 53 short of all-time leading scorer Gerd Muller.

The striker will now be looking to maintain his incredible goalscoring run over in Barcelona. Bayern, on the other hand, appear to be doing fine without him.
