Lewandowski the only blaugrana to have scored in all four competitions

Barça are in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, thanks in part to the finishing skills of Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker opened the scoring in the 59th minute of the contest against Osasuna with a well placed effort after an incisive pass from team İlkay Gündoğan, his 11th goal of the season. 

The goal was a vital one for the team as they now are just a game away from a possible first trophy of the season. The strike also means that Lewandowski is the only Barça player so far this season to have scored in all four competitions. Last Sunday he found the net from the penalty spot against Barbastro in the Copa del Rey to add to the goals he had already scored in La Liga and the Champions League. The striker will be looking to add to his total in the Super Cup in Sunday’s final against Real Madrid. 

In last season’s Spanish Super Cup final against Real Madrid, Lewandowski scored what is up to now his only goal in a Clásico. At the start of the second half the Polish striker’s goal made it 2-0 to Barça in what would go on to be a 3-1 victory for Xavi’s team which sealed his first piece of silverware as a Barça player. Let’s hope there are more goals and more silverware to come on Sunday.
