Although FC Barcelona supporters received the news of the signing of Robert Lewandowski gladly, the memories of the culés with the Pole were not pleasant at all, especially after his spell with Bayern Munich. The striker turned into an artifice of several of the goleadas suffered by the Barcelona at the hands of the Bavariansespecially in one of the most outrageous of recent years.
Barcelona experienced one of its darkest days on August 14, 2020 as part of the quarter-finals of the Champions League, a phase that UEFA has agreed to play in Lisbon to celebrate alone and behind closed doors in front of the measures decreed by the authorities to avoid contagions by coronavirus in which it has been one of the biggest health crises in recent years.
In the duel in question, the Pole was the author of the sixth so much of the Bavarians, which allowed them a comfortable difference of four goals, practically guaranteeing his passage to the semi-finals of the tournament. The meeting would end in a scandalous 2-8 that caused an authentic “earthquake” in the chest of the club, which dismissed its coach for the time, Quique Setién.
In total, Lewandowki scored four targets past Barcelona along five European crashes. Of all of them, only one favorite at the culés: that of the semi-finals of the 2014-15 edition. Barça, under the orders of Luis Enrique, won the Bavarians with a 3-0 that it would be enough to direct towards which so far was their last Champions final.
The meeting of ‘Lewy’ with his new friends
After having shone with Borussia Dortmund and with Bayern Munich, the Pole will face a new challenge within a team that is going through a major restructuring of its workforce. Lewandowski has already known in Miami the staff who will accompany him during the 2022-23 internship and was welcomed with satisfaction by some of the players and technical staff. All of them, like the fans, expect to celebrate many goals from the new striker.
