Bayern currently sits on 30 points through 13 matches, but Red Bull Leipzig has the opportunity to surpass the reigning German champions this weekend when they take on Schalke.

The Polish striker netted his first finish after eight minutes, leveling the match at 1-1 after an early Jhon Córdoba tally had given the hosts the advantage.

Lewandowski put the game to rest in second-half stoppage time after curling a free kick over the Mainz wall and into the back of the net.

After the sluggish start was past Bayern, Arjen Robben found a goal of his own in the 21st minute after diving in to head home Thomas Muller’s cross.
