The Bayern striker clearly outclasses Liverpool’s talisman stats-wise as well as trophy collection. Robert Lewandowski has been rampant ever since he joined Bayern Munich and shows no signs of stopping. 

The Poland striker has outdone himself many times in Bundesliga; he is the first non-German player to score most goals in Bundesliga in the 2020/21 season. 

He also broke Gerd Muller’s record for the most goals in a calendar year with 43 Bundesliga goals in 34 appearances.

Well, that’s not it; Lewandowski equalled Cristiano Ronaldo’s 2013 record by scoring 69 goals in a single calendar year by the end of 2021. 

While in Salah’s case, the Egyptian has found his goal-scoring prowess at the beginning of 2021/22 season. 

Though, he is still four goals behind Lewandowski’s 20 goals, who has played 2 fewer games than the Egyptian. 

Besides this, the 33-year-old, Lewandowski ended the first half of the new season with 19 goals in 17 Bundesliga games and started the new year with a bang completing his 20 goals after scoring a hattrick in his first appearance of 2022. 

This might be a dip in form for him compared to the outrageous 22 goals he netted in 17 games in 2020/21. The Poland striker has been an absolute beast in front of goals.  

While his Champions League stats for 2021/22 is nine goals in six outings, one behind Ajax striker Sebastian Haller. 

Mohamed Salah has found the back of the net 16 times in the Premier League in 20 league games, and in the Champions League, he chalked up seven goals in six matches. 

Robert Lewandowski vs Mohamed Salah: International Duty

While with the national team, the recently crowned FIFA Men's Player of the Year of 2021 has bagged 11 goals in 12 games in 2021, with three of those coming in Euro 2020 and the rest came in World Cup qualification. 

In contrast, Mohamed Salah has only found the back of the net twice in seven international appearances in 2021, although he could boost his tally in the 2022 African Cup of Nations. 

Robert Lewandowski also holds the best minutes-per-goal ratio of 1.17, compared to Salah’s 0.65 in 2021.

The Poland striker has dominated the 29-year-old in every stats area and deservingly won his FIFA Best Men’s Player award. 

Regardless of this, both the players have started the new season on the front foot, and we might see both of them competing for the Ballon d’Or and FIFA Best Men’s Player award this season.
