ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI was in unstoppable form as he netted a 20-minute hat-trick for rampant Bayern Munich.
The Poland striker was at his ruthless best as he destroyed Stuttgart in their 4-0 win, despite the hosts playing most of the game with ten men.
The German and European champions suffered a blow after just 12 minutes when Alphonso Davies was sent off for a dangerous challenge on Wataru Endo.
But this did not stop Bayern taking the lead after 17 minutes when Lewandowski fired home after being set up by Serge Gnabry.
Lewandowski headed in his second in the 23 minutes, which was almost immediately after Gnabry made it 2-0.
The 32-year-old striker completed his hat-trick with a low strike six minutes before the break.
It was his 35th goal in just 25 Bundesliga matches this campaign and he has now scored more than 40 goals for the sixth season in a row.
Lewandowski has scored an incredible 42 goals in 36 games this season as he shows no signs of slowing down with age.
Bayern’s win extended their lead at the top of the table to four points over RB Leipzig.
But the prolific striker is set to miss out on facing England in Poland’s World Cup qualifier at the end of this month.
Bayern Munich have blocked Lewandowski from featuring because he would face a 14-day quarantine on his return to Germany due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Lewandowski’s absence is a huge boost for England with Gareth Southgate’s side avoiding facing the most potent finisher in Europe.
