Bayern to spend big on pair


BERLIN. — Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller are closing in on the German Bundesliga’s record goal-haul for a partnership with the Bavarians reportedly set to spend big to keep the duo together.

Mueller netted twice and Lewandowski scored their third in Saturday’s 3-1 comeback win at home to Darmstadt for the runaway league leaders.

It was Bayern’s last game before tonight’s crunch Champions League last 16, first-leg clash at last season’s finalists Juventus.

Lewandowski is the German league’s top scorer with 22 goals, from 21 games, with Mueller on 17. It leaves the pair with 39 Bundesliga goals between them and 56 in all competitions this season.

They are chasing Grafite and Edin Dzeko’s league record of 54 league goals in the 2008-09 season when Wolfsburg won the title. — AFP.
