Bundesliga Team of the Week: Lewandowski bids farewell with a bang

The Polish attacker scored twice on his final league appearance for the season and takes the No.9 shirt in Goal’s final round up of the best performances in Germany

Matchday 34, fittingly, saw 34 goals across nine games and drama at both ends of the table as Nurnberg and Eintracht Braunschweig were both relegated to the second tier and Bayer Leverkusen scraped a Champions League place.

Ron-Robert Zieler claimed the No.1 shirt in Goal‘s Team of the Week for the final matchday after making an extraordinary number of saves in Hannover’s thrilling 3-2 win over Freiburg.

Omer Toprak scored a vital goal to deliver a top-four finish to Leverkusen, Joel Matip helped rubberstamp Nurnberg’s relegation with an early opener, Mats Hummels continued his good run of form in Borussia Dortmund’s 4-0 win over Hertha Berlin and Robin Knoche was on target in Wolfsburg’s fine, but fruitless 3-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Kevin De Bruyne and Ivan Perisic scored the hosts’ other goals at the Volkswagen Arena and line up in midfield with Hoffenheim’s Sebastian Rudy, himself on the scoresheet in the win over Braunschweig. Slightly ahead of them sit Halil Altintop of Augsburg and Pierre-Michel Lasogga, on target as Hamburg lost at Mainz, only for the results of those below them to ensure their survival.

Finally, Robert Lewandowski leads the line after his two goals against Hertha saw him claim the top scorer award this season and ensured he ended his Bundesliga career with Dortmund on a positive note.
